Companion to Haley McGee’s show ‘I’m Doing This For You’
It might take cyberBillCunningham himself to prove to existence of CoreCore aka AbFab.
99! I had a plan, and then I gave up on my plan because Toronto summer dictates the flow of events. This fashion runway graffiti maze yoga is everything about TVCITY Street Style encapsulated. It’s so good I want to reshoot it in a more fictionalized or fashiony context and I’m not sure if that would be respectful of the specialness of this event. How many people have walked this maze so completely and deliberately?

I continue to see these torso bisecting outfits, with a particular uptick in men wearing t-shirts that segment their torso. I am calling this phenomenon core-core.
I shot some Dan on the Street footage to go with this video piece by the Madeleine Collective
Summah for real.
This might be an early prediction for fashion trend of the summer, but men’s shirts that bisect horizontally have been popping up a lot on the streets.
Fish-based joke battle
Random food happenings from Powerball- the video I SHOULD have made involves bringing takeout containers and smuggling out pieces of octopus.
Monochrome or colour- I’M ANSWERING THE BIG QUESTIONS
Readings from Arielle Gavin and Stephen Thomas. My wireless microphone works!
TVCITY is part of an effort to take wider cinematic views of city life.
For the first episode, I went to the monthly Rock Eucharist service at the Church of the Redeemer- this month featured the music of Michael Jackson.
I thought of making TVCITY STREET STYLE 69 a more sexually themed video, spelling out provocative things by editing together shots of individual words from building signs. As funny as that would have been, I think it’s important to let the amazing creative stylish people set the tone for each video.
Humans of Toronto- I’m talking to people on the streets now. DAN ON THE STREET.
There’s a cuteness and elegance to Toronto Fashion Week and I think this new video captures some of that scene. It felt like the photographer to subject ratio was a bit high, but it was unseasonably cold and few people were hanging out outside.
Post daylight savings time is great for street style- the sun is finally out after work, and the weather is nice enough so that everyone is starting to dress up a bit. The long winter has messed up my bike, so it’s been tough to bike all around the city, which is why the last few videos have been a bit Queen West-heavy. But it’s true that Queen West is where most of the innovative street fashion is happening, and its inclusion on Vogue’s (not hierarchal) list of the world’s most stylish neighbourhoods is probably accurate. Every time the temperature rises a few degrees, there’s an explosion of fashion and it’s really great to see the streets coming back to life.
Impromptu Food Bomb- I can’t even go into a barbecue place without getting offered piles of duck heads!
I am partnering with Torontoist to publish videos in my TVCITY Street Style series, as well as other videos (coming soon)! It might not look it, but spring has done begun. I bumped into the older gentleman punk whose picture I have asked for probably over 20 times now and he will probably never let me take his picture. But he is as bemused as he is annoyed so I will continue to ask him whenever I see him.
Shot at the AGO First Thursdays Basquiat party!
Blue hair is happening, but yesterday at Yonge & Eglinton I saw some purple hair and purple so easily leads to red and pink.
