October is Women’s History Month here in Canada, and to help you celebrate we rounded up the most empowering female-led TV shows you can stream on platforms like Netflix, Crave and Apple TV+ this month, and beyond.
I May Destroy You
This deeply probing and unsettling British series fictionalizes the story of writer/star Michaela Coel’s own sexual assault, and chronicles the lead character’s struggle not just to piece together memories of the assault, but her journey towards overcoming the trauma.
Set in the Eastside neighbourhood of LA, this show follows two Mexican-American sisters who inherit a faili...

Attention, West Coast fashion lovers– there’s yet another can’t-miss designer pop-up launching on your shores today.

First launched in 2019, Prada Re-Nylon is the brand’s flagship sustainability collection – each piece is crafted out of a regenerated nylon that is created through the recycling and purification of ocean plastics, fishing nets, landfills and textile fibre waste... more

The pop-up runs for 30 days starting October 7.
According to a recent article in Artnet, female artists account for less than 2% of the art sold at auctions over the past decade. It’s an abysmal statistic but one that Toronto-based artist Nuria Madrenas wants to play a role in changing with MRKT Gallery, an online platform for female-made art.
As an illustrator herself, she realized early on in her career that there was a huge disparity between women and men in the art world. “On average, female-made art is usually sold at 40% less than what the male equivalent would be,” she says... more

It re-opens its doors today with a drop of new fall looks.
Since founding his eponymous Vancouver storefront in 2017, London, U.K. transplant James Faulkner has established his business as a purveyor of unique vintage and archival goods. Inspired by the second-hand scene in San Fransisco–where he worked in his early twenties–Faulkner was resolute in differentiating his selection of wares in a city that he confirms has “a really good vintage scene.”
Noting that he’s been fortunate to have “a lot of cool people with cool clothes who support me, and give me their collections”, Faulkner says that he “wanted to do something different” in terms of his shop’s curation of pieces that includes everything f... more

Whether you’re looking for a little nostalgia or all things new, these shows have got something for everyone.
It’s been a busy couple of months for Apple – from the release of two new Apple Watch models to the announcement of its very own fitness streaming platform, a new subscription service and the rebranding of its global radio station from Beats 1 to Apple Music 1, there’s been a lot going on. The latter is particularly exciting, given that the announcement was accompanied by news of an incredible line-up of hosts ready to change the way we listen to, and interact with, music.
Here, we meet five of the women of Apple Music 1 to find out more about their studio style, their dream interviews... more
Shopping local on Prime Day just became even easier.
If you’ve currently got plans on October 13 and 14, you may want to cancel them as Amazon Canada has just announced that those are the dates that Prime Day will be taking place this year.
For the uninitiated, Prime Day is a yearly two-day shopping extravaganza during which Amazon offers a bunch of sales and limited time offers across all of its categories. It’s a bargain hunter’s paradise and also an excellent opportunity to snap up some of the items you’ve had sitting in your cart over the past couple of months...
See what the street style set are wearing in the Italian city.
Milan Fashion Week kicked off yesterday for the Spring 2021 season with a blend of physical and digital shows – and unlike London and New York before it, there’s no shortage of street style on offer for those attending the few in-person shows being held around the city. Show attendees are leaning into bright colours, head-to-toe tonals and monochromatic leathers for the presentations, and the slouchy boot looks set to be the hottest footwear choice for the season ahead.
With three days left on the schedule and some 23 in-person presentations scheduled to take place, there will be plenty more street style on offe...
