A Crucial Catch

You may be wondering why this tough football player is wearing bright pink gloves. Well, that’s because the NFL is proud to support the fight against breast cancer. Their campaign, “A Crucial Catch” in association with the American Cancer Society, aims at improving breast cancer awareness by featuring players, coaches, and referees wearing pink game apparel. It’s touching to see these bright pink accessories dazzle the field of such an aggressive sport. You can find out more about this campaign by clicking here.

Thanks to all of you who have contributed towards the fight against breast cancer by supporting OHM!

Floral Prints

It’s that time of year again - the holiday season is over, and winter seems to have no end in sight. With my winter boots, knitted hats and snugly mittens losing their novelty, I’m daydreaming of spring’s lively spirit to revitalize my wardrobe (and, of course, a chance to see what OHM’s designers have concocted for spring in our approaching fashion show). But hey, why daydream when you can bring spring into your closet even in the depth of winter? All it takes is some bold accessories, vibrant colours, and charming floral prints. I love TOPSHOP’S collection of florals - especially their muted floral jeans (pictured above).

Click here to check out their collection!

These funky florals will have you feeling like your roaming the streets on a hot summer day licking vanilla soft serve in no time -- hey, one can dream, right?...

OHM's Success Story

Brandon R. Dwyer from Ontario, Canada, age 22, is an inspiration for all. Starting off in the fashion design program at Fanshawe College in London Ontario and an OHM alumni designer, he has now made it into the spotlight. After his d├ębut on the second season of Global’s reality series Project Runway Canada, his collection “Garden Party Glam” was on the runway as part of Toronto Fashion Week on Friday October 23rd, 2009.
Flare Magazine described designer Brandon Dwyer as, ‘one to watch for.’ His inspiration? Oscar de la Renta and Donatella Versace.
How does he manage to differentiate his collections from all others? "I have a unique, organic style. I think this will give me an edge."

Now Brandon’s collection is featured in magazines such as Flare. Check out his magnificent black leather dress.

Brandon’s advice, “really make sure it’s what you want. To make it anywhere in this industry you have to push harder than you think even possible. I have spent countless days and nights without sleep to make it to where I am, with very little money being made. I think if your passionate about what you do, you will make sacrifices, and make the best out of every opportunity.”

If you want to learn more about Brandon and check out some of his designs here’s the link to his page:

What’s Hot for this Season?

How to rock your vogue in 2010…

1. The warrior look- The military and tribal looks collide to create this fierce fashion trend. Rivets, studs, and jewels…more the better. Especially in that rustic gun metal colour. However, the main criteria for the modern warrior is confidence.

2. Tights that look like jeans- Get the comfort without the hassle. These leggings look essentially like jeans, with stitching and all, but are made with super stretch fabrics.

3. Big watches- If you thought watches were big before then you are in for an even bigger surprise. Don’t look for feminine lines, these masculine looking pieces have become not only watches but bracelets. Accents of yellow gold and rose gold are particularly hot.

4. Navy blue and grey- this classic colour combo is back and bigger than ever for any and every ensemble.

5. Oversized dress shirts- Paired perfectly with blue jeans or leggings.

6. Patterned and printed pants- We’re no longer sticking with boring solid colours, all varieties of prints and patterns have made their way onto the runways. Whether floral, striped, abstract, bold or subdued... patterns on pants are giving us new bold wardrobe options.

7. Bag waist men’s trousers for women- This new look combines both style and comfort. The slouchy look is hotter than ever.
