PHOENIX VINTAGE - RISING FROM THE PAST

Excerpt from The Globe and Mail's 'Canada's Best Dressed, 2018':

As the owner of pop-up and online shop Phoenix Vintage, Madge Colleran channels her love of history’s most outspoken styles into her work. “I want to find remarkable things for people. I look for exceptional cut, colour, pattern, texture, and I would never put someone in something blah,” she says. Born in London, Ont., the 27-year-old has accumulated a museum-worthy wardrobe over the years, including an original 1968 Yves Saint Laurent safari jacket and a pair of purple silk bellbottoms by Balmain. “The bells are so generous with the draped fabric, they pool onto the ground,” she says. “They’re identical to a pair Stevie Nicks was shot in.” Being an entrepreneur gives Colleran the freedom to dress how she pleases, and she chooses more swishy looks in the evenings when she spins glam rock as DJ Madgic or performs with her band, Cherry Hooker. Expressing herself through fashion is a passion that Colleran found when she was bullied as a child. “My retaliation was adorning avant-garde street fashion,” she says. “When you can dress up and present yourself as a spectacular human being, it becomes a shield against whatever is trying to bring you down.”
