Tiffany Cruz of City Sleek Chic is one of the sweetest girls I've met in the biz. When we linked up for coffee and a chat, she was calming, witty and encouraging - just what I needed to up my spirits while feeling like a stranger on a recent visit to my hometown, Toronto.
Though I love my city, I moved to New York in 2009, and then to Vancouver in 2011. I've often felt disconnected to the fashion industry in Toronto, especially since I only visited for short, sporadic amounts of time. Tiffany urged me to feel no fear while getting back into the swing of things upon my decision of moving back to The 6. Thanks a bunch, Tiff! And thank you for wearing our Hornchurch clutch so gracefully during World Mastercard Fashion Week, as well as in your personal shoot, amongst the textures of the city and the freshly-fallen autumn leaves.
