Recently, Randi has produced some very cool Fashion Films featuring many of Canada’s home-grown talents, just another way she is fostering the growth of Canadian fashion content.

When you lived in New York what was your favourite place to visit?
How did you land your freelance gig with Interview Magazine?
I had interned for them when I was living in New York, so when I moved home, I got back in touch about writing fashion and arts features for the website as well as covering the occasional Toronto event.
Longest your phone has ever been off?
12 hours, and only because that’s the longest flight I’ve been on.
Best vegetarian restaurant in Toronto?
Fresh. Been eating there regularly since high school, and still love it as much as ever!
Currently obsessed with?
Techno or Folk? Vintage or designer? YSL or Balenciaga?
Neither. Both. Both.

WWD, Vogue UK, The Telegraph, and Twitter, obviously
