Jacqueline considered fashion as both a distraction and a career path from the very time she became enthralled by the glossy pages of her first Vogue. Born in Fort St. John, B.C., Jacqueline moved to Edmonton, Alberta to begin her fashion education in late 2006. Jacqueline has since paired education and a love of both writing and fashion to pursue a career in the world of fashion journalism, working towards one day being a fashion editor for a major European magazine.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
My favourite accomplishment was hosting my own runway show in EFW in which I used the cities most prominent drag queens to showcase the garments. The theme of the collection was Beetleguese meets Cruella De Vil meets black and white feathered ostrich and proceeds to pluck it :)
It was quite the collection.
How do you define cool?
Cool [kool]; moderately cold; neither warm nor cold: a rather cool evening.
Cool [kool];1 Somewhat of a feeling emenating from a person. When you are in the presence of said person, you feel cool yourself.
2. Being so comfortable and confident in who you are, that you could rock "a flock of seaguls, neon sequined skinnies underneath assless chaps, fairy wings and an iced out grill" and still have people wanting to be your friend.

What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
A large helping of wit combined with a pinch of sarcasm, and a teaspoon of zest. The end result is a well written post that keeps the readers wanting more.
How do you reset to be creative?
Usually, it is a ritualistic viewing of anything Tim Burton (his work really gets my creativity flowing), followed by a short dance party in my living room with all of the curtains drawn. I have then experienced a dose of one of the most creative minds of our day as well as a relaxing, and, rather embarassing were anyone to see me, expression of my love for Britney.
What inspires or excites you?
See above; his name is Tim Burton.
He inspires me.
Also, Jonny Depp.
He excites me.........and evokes a different kind of creativity/creative expression :).
Predict something awesome for 2020?
The age of Aquarius dawns upon us; and being homosexual is considered "the norm", while being heterosexual is considered "deviant". Super random......a friend predicted this once, wasnt quite sure what to make of it, but, there you have it.
I guess I kind of cheated a bit on that question.
