Fashion nerds: Your favourite Star Wars characters sport the latest men’s fashions


Do you ever feel like you have to choose between your love of fashion and your love of epic space operas? We agree it should never come to that, but now you don’t have to.

We had a quick email chat with Meder to find out what inspired the paper dolls, her favourite illustrators and why she focuses on the local.

We need a palate cleanse after all that high fashion.  Figure skating costumes will do nicely. [LA Times]

Jil Sander is now a consultant for Uniqlo, which, for the thousandth time, we are praying will come to Canada. Seriously, how can we get this done? [Yahoo]
