Location Voitures - Discount Québec

It's always such a thrill looking for new brands (well, new to me) and feeling like I can dress more worldly than my usual J.Crew and Zara finds. I found Montreal-based designer Valerie Dumaine while browsing my favorite fashion blogs and instantly gravitated towards her clean and elegant designs. Trained in London and Berlin, she started her own line in 2004. Her company is still relatively young, so snap up her collection now! Those who love crazy prints and colors might not go crazy over her collections, but upon closer look you'll see some pretty amazing details. One of my initial favorites was the Cairo Tulip Dress made out of crushed rayon for a great texture and additional dimension. Her separates are also great because I can't think of any two pieces I can't put together. Best of all, all her clothes are made right in Canada and available online and at over 50 stores across the world. Take a look at my slideshow to see my favorite looks from her line.

We definitely think Posh Spice could pull this one off! Victoria Beckham certainly knows enough about fashion and looking good and we're pretty sure her modeling agency would be top of the line! Everyone would be dying to be a part of it. Victoria Beckham would be working on this exciting new modeling agency project with her manager Simon Fuller (you may know Simon Fuller as the creator of American Idol. He was also the manager of the Spice Girls). Clearly, Simon knows what he's doing in the business world and we think Victoria has quite a few business smarts herself. According to a source, "Simon knows that Victoria is very savvy when it comes to fashion. His first foray into fashion was to team up designer Roland Mouret and Victoria, which was a huge success." We're sure Simon loves having Victoria on his side and the source says, "Victoria is a key asset to Simon and he wants her to take on a major role." Simon already owns 50% of London modeling agency Storm Models and wants Victoria to set up something similar in New York. We can't wait to see what Victoria's model agency is all about; we bet all the girls will be absolutely stunning! Check out more info and pics by clicking over to our friends at Limelife!
