One of our favorite veterans of the Canadian fashion scene is Liz Cabral, FLARE Magazine’s fierce Fashion Director. She’s responsible for setting the tone of the publication, and does so by creating, producing, and styling all the fashion well stories (but she’s the first to admit, she lends heavily on her killer team of fashion editors for much of the magazine’s success). She’s been at FLARE for over seven years, and throughout her tenure at our nations influential pub, has styled countless celebrities and models, but bad ass chicks like Lara Stone, Daria and Doutzen really get her creative juices flowing. While the location may set the stage (Shanghai, Paris, Puglia, New York, LA and even the Yukon Territories), it’s Cabral’s sense of what women want that helps bring her editorials to life. Her own personal style? She’s pinpointed her daily get ups as “avant chic”, mixing harder pieces by Rick Owens with classic and sophisticated pieces by Celine or Chanel. Instead of decorating her wrists and neck with sparkly gems (she's indicated she's not a "jewelry wearer"), she let's the shoes do all the talking. They say these boots are made for walkin', but Nancy Sinatra clearly hasn't seen Mrs. Cabral rock her Aldo x Julian Louie kicks.
