Veronika London - Maxim's Canadian Hometown Hottie


London is no stranger to Maxim; she was recently featured on the magazine being named the "Megan Fox of Hollywood North" while promoting the upcoming TV- series (SHOWTIME'S) "Body Language" which airs this fall. Currently, our product model has finished shooting two features "Jane Doe" and "Black Eve," which are set to premier at the end of this year. Upcoming featured projects for the young beauty include playing a junkie in "Growing Paranoia" and a hottie that kicks ass in "Burning Amber".

Below, find the down-lo on London's newest project, "Growing Paranoia."


GROWING PARANOIA - THE MOVIE
VERONIKA LONDON- STARRING AS LACY

Logline:
Hired by a biker gang to live inside a residential house being used for a marijuana growing operation, Steve Dillinger and his girlfriend Lacy think they have the perfect job. But the seclusion and paranoia due to the illegal nature of it, causes stress and tension to build, especially when they discover they are not the only ones residing in the house.

Synopsis:
Steve Dillenger is a small time drug dealer going nowhere in life, until opportunity knocks and a biker gangs has him move into a house with his girlfriend, Lacy. The basement of the house is set up as a marijuana growing operation for the biker gang and as to not attract unwanted attention from neighbors or the police, the bikers need Steve and Lacy to play “house” and keep any suspicions at bay. It’s a dream job with more money then either of them have ever seen.

But as time passes and cabin fever sets in, their job takes its toll on the couple. Paranoia sinks in and Lacy begins seeing things, convinced the house is haunted and the Spirits are not happy with them being in their home. Believing that the bikers will not let them just walk away, Steve, who has been increasingly dipping into the readily available stash of narcotics, is desperate to get out of the situation. In the hopes of making a lot of extra money quickly, so they will be able to just sneak away in the night, he brings in a Crystal Meth cooker to set up a lab upstairs at a very inviting price. But sneaking around behind the bikers’ backs only adds to the paranoia.

And as Lacy looks into the history of the house and who the angry Spirit might be, it’s already too late for everyone in the house. Between the bikers and the ghost of a woman who used to live in the house, no one may make it out alive.


And also be sure to watch the trailer for Jane Doe right here on our blog.


But most importantly, don't forget to check her out on Maxim :

Be authentic - The most important lesson you can learn about your brand


I learned one of the most important lessons from this book. I read Chasing Cool about a month ago as it was recommended by my friend Yvonne of HeyDoYou. As I started reading I begin to think it was a composition of articles throwing out catch phases and cliches about going within to find yourself and not copying or looking at others.

It talked about avoiding trend reports. What a foolish thing I thought, how can you design relevant pieces that people will buy if it's not on the mark or what is hot.

The more I read into the book I realize the whole book was that one theme. But something change, it was me. I started to fully understand what it means to be yourself and not care about others. I knew what it meant to be authentic, true to your brand, your vision, and who you are as a brand.

That have been an important lesson, at the end I knew who I was, what JUZD Streetwear stands for, what I have to do create and not follow. It's a simple lesson "be authentic", two words but for me to understand the meaning behind the two words I had to read 227 pages and it was worth it.

What we have been doing was looking at the trends and fashion reports and works of other designer. However it felt very strange, incongruent. The first JUZD collection came out and it was very well received. Even to this point people are still ordering it. Yet when we did the first collection I didn't know anything about fashion, about trends, about reports or the shirt industry, I did it because that's what I thought was good art.

As I am working hard on the current collection no longer do I care what others are doing or what is doing well in the stores. JUZD is not in the business of copying others or even following paths of other lines, we are in the business of creating our brand, our own direction, and our own style. It's even better if our line doesn't look like what's hot out there. It means we are original, and when you create good art, those people who appreciate it will buy it.

Someone's personal photos on YouTube?

About 10 minutes ago I contemplated going to bed but decided to check a few things online then I found myself on a MySpace page with a youtube video. For some reason I click play. I hate MySpace, all pages look like crap and with little content.

This is one of those. I clicked it because I didn't know what it was doing on this poorly composed thing called a page. A few seconds in I was hooked because of the song. To me it seem like someone compiled a bunch of personal photos and overlaid it with Portishead's Glorybox, one of the most amazing songs and one of my favourite bands.

The more I watched the more intrigued I was. It was not what I expected, it ended being one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

I believe this is a better video than the original.

Go Green with Preloved!

When one thinks of being "green" , the first thought that comes to mind is the phrase "reducing, reusing, and recycling". A Toronto based brand has latched onto this idea effectively in the form of stylish and practical designs making use of gently used fabrics. The founder of Preloved, Julia Grieve, opened the first store in 1995 and has only moved up since. Grieve has been asked to appear on numberous television shows, such as Project Runway Canada and How to Look Good Naked Canada, and was also the host of Diva on a Dime. Along with creative designer, Peter Friesen, the Preloved named has moved out of Toronto and extended its reach as far to Australia, the U.S., Japan and all over Europe.

The designs for Preloved are chic and modern and celebrities including Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson, have been known to sport the brand. Despite its cosmopolitan appeal, the biggest claim to fame for Preloved is its green initiative and sustainability. Grieve has stayed true to her beginnings and still uses only pre-worn clothing, such as sweaters or jeans, however, she does not limit herself and also creates wonderful designs from curtains, and bed sheets. No matter what materials are used, this writer still thinks Preloved creates some of the cutest dresses she's ever seen.


And be sure to check out the Spring 2010 collection by Preloved, showcasing at next month's Toronto LG Fashion Week!

Famed and Edgy British Design Alexander McQueen Commits Suicide

As New York Fashion Week kicks off with fall and winter designs, the fashion industry was shocked to learn that designer Alexander (née Lee) McQueen was found to have committed suicide yesterday. The 40 year old designer was said to have hanged himself after a slew of anguished online remarks regarding his mother's death last week. McQueen is credited with reviving the once dying British fashion industry with his edgy and ingenious designs. The revered designer will be sorely missed by admirers of his boldness and by the fashion industry, family, and friends.

The JUZD team would like to offer their condolences to those affected by the death of Alexander McQueen. We too are shocked to have lost such a talented designer.
