Tell us about Toronto Fashion Week, what was your favourite moment?
Toronto Fashion Week is always a fantastic opportunity for me. I find that it is such a great place to gather people from various sectors within the industry to all work together for one common goal (and that is to put on a show). You get to see old friends and new, and you get to see not only fantastic style on the attendees, but you get to see new looks come down the runway for the following season. I think though if I had to choose my favorite moment it was the Bustle show. Known for fun shows, this year was unlike any other. With a great Safari theme, and models with a fantastic sense of humor, it was definitely a show not to be missed.
You got to preview a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 smartphone for the week. What was your favourite feature?
Having the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for a week made me realize I did not want to give it back. It didn’t just have one feature that I liked, but it had many features that I LOVED. The camera burst feature which allowed me to take 20 photos at a time over a period of a few seconds was great for runway shots. The note function allowed me to scribble down things fast and it was great at recognizing my hand-writing. It was also really intuitive. With different motion controls and fantastic word recognition, this phone was amazing.
How do you like the Android platform?
I never used to like the Android platform, but after this, I am a total convert. Everything is made to fit the needs of the user, and it is adjustable to whatever you want the phone to do. I like that opposed to other operating systems which pigeon hole you into certain functions and only one set of functionalities.
What did you notice about the Rogers LTE Network?
What I noticed about the Rogers LTE Network was that I have never had an internet connection on a phone so fast in my life. I had my photos instantly being shared with dropbox, and I was tweeting away, and I was using the internet and GPS tracking devices all at the same time, and I never had my phone slow down, never had the internet slow down, and I noticed that it was always super speedy no matter what time of the day it was.
How did the Samsung Note 2 smartphone enhance your experience at Toronto Fashion Week?
The Samsung Galazy Note 2 made Toronto Fashion Week so much easier for me. The device is convenient and gave me access to my email, my texts, my calls, my camera, my social media networks and my drop box. I went from carrying a bag with everything I needed to merely this phone. It took such beautiful images that I couldn’t believe a smartphone could do, and it even allowed me to be able to update my website from the device, making on the spot site updates a breeze. This is truly a techy, a blogger, and a media mavens best friend.
Are you excited to see Psy perform Gangnam Style tonight at the Kool Haus?
I’ve been ranting and raving about being able to see Psy and watch him perform at the Kool Haus. It is going to be such an amazing performance and is looking to be like a stunning night overall. I cannot wait.
