Winter is here, whether we like it or not. Staying warm in Calgary during this cold season is hard, staying warm and trendy is even harder. The Calgary Journal connected with streetwear stylist Jimmy Boi, creative director of Secret Shop YYC: a pop-up shop in Calgary that brings together vintage and high fashion all around the city at various dates.
Fashion is a major part of any era and in some cases, it defines that time period. Throughout the years, people have been changing their look to blend in, feel comfortable or to stay on top of trends. However, the fashion industry is expensive. According to Statistics Canada, in 2016 the average household spent $3,371 on clothing and accessories. One Calgary fashion stylist is challenging the industry and is pushing for affordable contemporary clothing.
