[ haus alert ]

On Saturday a bunch of us went to a grand opening party for a new store on Bloor St. West called HAUS. It’s “the only concept store where local and international designers and artists alike showcase their pieces through the vision of HAUS.” At the party I had the pleasure of meeting its two charming owners William and Rachel. Rachel told me about the vision behind this cute little shop – most of their clothes being recycled from vintage pieces, and their desire to support local talent. In doing so, HAUS fosters a creative, fashion-conscious community that extends beyond mere consumerism.

When I was invited to this party I didn’t really know what to expect in terms of the style of their clothes but, once we got there, I was happy to discover many interesting, fun pieces that I would love to add to my collection. I tried a few garments on but there was so much commotion from the party that I decided to leave the shopping for another day…and I will be back! I think HAUS will quickly become one of Toronto’s fashion hot-spots. Check it out; it’s on 1265 Bloor St. West. I doubt that you’ll be leaving empty handed.

What I’m wearing:

  • Silk dress by “Temperley London”
  • Shoes by “Elie Tahari”
  • Nude tights by “Calvin Klein”
  • Plastic flower ring (I bought in Cuba for one convertible peso)
  • Gold necklace
  • Clutch by “Murval”

  1. Thank you so much. I was on your site last night actually, and left a comment. Maybe you didn’t realize it was me. I’ll go back and comment again then :).

    1. Not really. Their stuff is reasonably priced. For example, Taras just bought jeans from them at $75 (not on sale). And they do have interesting stuff for guys – trendy and hip.

      btw, did Taras end up sending you the pictures you asked for? I bugged him about it.

      1. Да, Лидочка. He finally did. Thank you, I wouldn’t get them without you.
        I’m scary as hell on those pictures, but you look stunning as usual.
