FASHION SUCCESS: HELMER’S GLASS DRESS

260 hours is a lot of time. That’s 520 episodes of Sex and The City, but since there’s only 94 episodes, 260 hours would mean that you could watch all episodes from every season almost 6 times. 260 hours is also the amount of time fashion designer, Helmer, spent creating his latest hand-made creation, a stunning dress made of bristle, metal, beads, crystals and mostly….8000 glass tubes. That’s right, 8000 glass tubes! I haven’t seen such an impressive piece of couture in a long time. Because yes – I’ve seen it! Exclusively for the Montreal Buzz, Helmer kindly accepted that I get a sneak peek of the dress (thank you Helmer!) during a private fitting with his muse, model Sarah Jordan.

MISS DESTRUCTO VISITS MONTREAL

Here’s a not so-secret confession: I LOVE Twitter. Over the last two years, the Twittersphere has allowed me to connect and meet some truly inspiring souls. Real good people as I like to call them. Gary Vaynerchuk, Chris Brogan, Juliette Powell, Julien Smith… the list goes on & on. My latest encounter was with Tampa native, Amber Osborne, known on the interweb as Miss Destructo – or that witty and gut-busting social media chick with the blue bob. Move over Anna Wintour.
