Designer Spotlight: EMMY DEVEAUX

Designer Spotlight: EMMY DEVEAUX

I was in fan-girl heaven last week when I went into the EMMYDEVEAUX Showroom in Edmonton, Alberta. I was first introduced to the line when they were popped up at RAAS at West Edmonton Mall. My mom and sister both purchased items from her pop-up. I started following along after my sister attended one of their open meetings and she told me that Emily, the owner was amazing and that I needed to follow her journey on social media.  I've been watching her stories and seeing her fabulous dresses, and one day, with some serious shopper instinct, I purchased my...

Boho & Snow 10 days away

This is by far the biggest event I've hosted to date, besides my own Surprise Wedding which my husband and I (Renata and Mama too!) planned in less than 6 weeks. Why Boho & Snow?

California MoonRise is today’s go-to brand for the latest nomad indie trends and vintage folk collections for young women that want to make a statement.  Founded in Montreal, Quebec in the Spring of 2015, California MoonRise was born from a collaboration of artists and designers from Montreal...

Feature Artist: Stefania Moccia Temper & Lace

Feature Artist: Stefania Moccia Temper & Lace

Every two weeks, we feature a new local artist who is a part of the Prairie Couture Dream Team. Stefania and I met at the latest installment of Cowgirl & Gyspy Lodge Harvest event.  Stef was my neighbour and I couldn't resist the scents from her candles. As I watched the reaction of shoppers throughout the day, I knew that I had to get her product into my hot hands and into the store for my customers. Plus she is a fellow Canadian with Italian heritage like me!  Stefania started Temper + Lace 11 months ago after searching high and...
