Preview: Grey Lagoons

"Inspiration board for clothing line mostly coming from old footage of The Who" - @OdessaPaloma, via twitter

We love a good collaboration here at Fitzroy, especially when it involves our oh-so-talented friends and people who inspire us within the Toronto fashion community. And when it comes to style, no one knows their shit like Toronto's own Odessa Paloma Parker. The often-photographed stylist, writer, beauty-school instructor and former editor-in-chief of Plaid Magazine, Odessa is now trying her hand at designing her own capsule collection, exclusively for Fitzroy! 

In collaboration with our incredibly talented in-house designer Sarah Donofrio, the collection entitled  "Grey Lagoons" will be making it's debut at our Fall Pop Up this September! Each hand-made piece will be a reflection of Odessa's personal style, inspired by vintage rock n' roll and refined glamour (we love that her inspiration board features both Iris Apfel and Rod Stewart!) Think pussy-bows, a-line skirts, printed dresses and bell sleeves!  Made from vintage fabrics, the collection will have a distinctly vintage look and feel, making it the perfect compliment to Fitzroy's fall collection. 

Scroll down for a sneak peek at Sarah and Odessa's inspiration board, sketches and fabric swatches! We can't wait to see the finished product!

 Follow Odessa on twitter and Instagram @OdessaPaloma for more on Grey Lagoons, and for her sardonically hilarious commentary.
