Yesterday my friend and I headed down to the Bay on Queen St, Toronto. To check out the Rachel Roy New York and Rachel Roy Signature collections which is only available at The Bay , and of course we got to meet Rachel Roy herself.

The RACHEL Rachel Roy collection is for a younger women, with African inspired prints, chiffon, short jumpers and military influenced jackets the prince range is ($18-$299)
I was able to ask Rachel a quick question in regards to working with Chanel Iman over the weekend at the L.E.I Model Citizen Search and she said " Chanel Iman is a model who's a very determined young female, and has a great work ethic for someone her age and will go very far in the fashion industry"
Tenika Davis was one of the models at the event. Tenika was on the 1st cycle of Canada's Next Top Model, she is currently doing modeling and acting gigs and is signed with Ford Modeling agency and hopes to make a name for herself in the industry. Tenika is from North of Toronto and is of Trinidad descent, her favorite models are Liya Kebede and Chanel Iman. Her advice to females wanting to become a model is stay strong and have lots of confidence in yourself.
