Toronto District Jewelry Collection Inspiration

Toronto District Jewelry Collection Inspiration

Where do I start! The love I have for Toronto is unbelievable, I grew up north of the city about a 40 minuite transit ride or car ride to the beautiful city. When I was a kid I always knew that I was a city boy.

Back in the 90's I will always plan days and nights trips to the city.  Whelther it be getting all dressed up and dining in the Yorkville District. Planning a day of shopping at local fashion designers in the Fashion District. Attending musicals show and symphony concerts in the Entertainment District. Boogie down and celebrating in the Village District. Taking a walk through history and stop off at a trendy coffee shop in the Distillery District.   

When I started to build the exclusive Matty's Fab Avenue Toronto  District Jewelry Collection in collaboration with glamjulz I wanted it to represent my favourite Districts that a grew up to love and that have been the staple of what Toronto has become and continues to grow. 

1. Distillery District

Inspiration: My perfect Sunday includes a visit to the Distillery district where I grab a specialty coffee and walk the cobblestone streets of this historical landmark.

 2. Entertainment District

Inspiration: Neon lights, pumping beats, Electric Circus, and a vendor hot dog to close the evening.  That was my life 15 years ago.  Today I live here in the heart of the Entertainment district and enjoy dinner at Restaurant Row and symphony nights at Roy Thompson Hall or seeing a broadway show at Royal Alexandra Theatre with my husband

3. Fashion District

Inspiration: Garments, vintage finds, local designers this is where fashion is born.  My love for style and originality is fulfilled in the Fashion district!  I've got bags full of fabulous finds and a story to tell about each designer.

 4. Village District

Inspiration: Here is where it all began.  I came out of the closet, called a cab and he indulged me by blasting Julie Garland's "Somewhere over the Rainbow" as we made our way to the Village.  It was a place where I met my community.  Today the city of Toronto has become that community for me, we are all one,  I can go anywhere and show my colours without judgement.

5. Yorkville District

Inspiration: The charm of Yorkville has changed so much over the years.  I fell in love with this area in the 90's when I would spend hours window shopping in the quaint boutiques, star gazing at the Four Seasons and dreaming about the future of Matty's Fab Avenue
