Happy Halloween

Halloween, a time of the year when the physical and supernatural worlds are closest and magical things could happen.
This is how the historical Irish used to celebrate this special day.

Present day, the celebration of All Hallow's Even has taken on much more costumy feel. It's a day for people to embrace their inner alter-ego. Just for one night, or in this year's case the whole weekend, you can be whoever you want to be.

Halloween Costume Party

Judging by the proliferation of pop-up Halloween stores around town, Halloween is a booming business. Even our favourite designers can't help but draw inspired from the spirit of costume play.

Don't under estimate the power of fashion. Clothes can often change a person. On such a magical occasion, don't be surprised that you may end up embody the essence of your costumed alter-ego.  Happy Halloween everyone.

    I love the idea of Snap Apple Night! Maybe we could start that as an entirely new holiday!!

    Also, if you had the money, wouldn't it be just dreamy to wear something couture for Halloween? I die a little bit just thinking about it! Of course, that would have to be one heck of a fancy Halloween party :)

  2. Plus 1 on the Snap Apple Night. Could catch on as something.

    Oh yes, if I had the money, you bet. My favourite from the above is definitely the first On Aura Tout Vu look! So amazing!

  3. Those couture costumes are fantastic! I love the take on the plain ordinary black cat costume.
