The dynamic Styleista duo, Brenna Hardy & Phaedra Godchild, are back! These fashion mavens styled our Italian Fashion Gala last Season, and have returned to style our Holt Renfrew exclusive Lock Into Paris fashion show, coming up on November 7 at the Devonian Gardens. With the finest Parisian haute couture and exclusive silent auction and raffle items (including a one-of-a-kind CHANEL necklace and earrings set, donated by the Brussa Bravo! Legacy program), this is a must-attend event for fashion lovers.

Check out our Q&A with Phaedra to learn more about the role of a fashion stylist, the Parisian brand names you’ll see on the runway, and more!

What is the role of Styleista for the Lock Into Paris Fashion show?

We are the stylists of the fashion show, which entails working with the CPO to create a cohesive theme, coordinate the music, lighting, and runway, select the models, and select and style the clothing. 

Which designer labels will people see on the runway?

These are some of the Parisian brands guests will see: Lanvin, Marie St. Pierre, Nanette Lapore, Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Montclair, Zadig & Voltaire, and Koolpes.

 What “look” are you going for?

Two primary themes will take the show from start to finish: Parisian Street Style and Parisian Ready to Wear.

What are you and Brenna most excited about when it comes to this show?

We like selecting the clothing and pairing outfits together in new and exciting ways. We love that the theme is Parisian this year because Paris is the epitome of high fashion.

Which designer label are you most excited to see on the runway, and why?

We are both excited to see fashions from Lanvin because this season’s collection is extravagant and extreme, which creates drama on the runway. 

Anything else you’d like to add?

We are so happy to be working on the show again this year with the CPO and Holt Renfrew!
