It may have been close to 30 degrees outside, but behind the scenes with Leone it was all about boots, fur accents and other fall fashions. This year the colour palette is bold and the clothes spectacular. The atmosphere was any fashion addict’s dream come true.
From Sweden to Japan, the people here at BFX come from a mosaic of different backgrounds. Our heritages do have one thing in common though, a history of tasty food. What does this kaleidoscope of culture taste like, you might ask? We decided to do some hard investigating...and had a cultural potluck.

A couple of years ago - April 30th, 2010 to be exact - on a luxurious week away in Puerto Vallarta with my husband Tim, I had an awakening moment in my life that still brings tears to my eyes to this day. We left Mexico having sponsored two little girls named Valleria and Jennifer. These girls and their families lived at the city dump and struggled daily for the simple things we all take for granted such as food and shelter. Yet, every child I met at the dump that day was full of laughter and hugs. A day I will never, ever forget.
We would like to take you back to a time when “husky” married girls made model employees. A time when it was presumed that women required several rest breaks to tidy their hair and apply fresh lipstick. We recently came across a guide for hiring women published in 1943, during World War II. As an office predominantly staffed by ladies we can’t help but laugh a little at some of these vintage tips. Here are some of our favourite excerpts from this article:
1. Pick young married women. They usually have more of a sense of responsibility than their unmarried sisters, they’re less likely to be flirtatious, they need work or they wouldn’t be doing it.
