On September 5, the style set will gather at the Great Hall, deep in Toronto’s west end, for Re\Set, a two-day fashion event and marketplace that will celebrate the work of 26 emerging and established Canadian designers, including Sid Neigum, Jennifer Torosian, Alex S. Yu and Hilary MacMillan. There will be runway shows and presentations, a panel discussion on the future of fashion (hosted by The Kit!) and, of course, much chatter about the joy and challenges of being a designer in this country.
The style world was devastated recently, with the news that legendary Canadian fashion writer and editor David Livingstone had passed away at the age of 69. Livingstone, who had been an editor-in-chief of The Look and Men’s FASHION, was an icon from an earlier age. He had personal Polaroids of Debbie Harry, Stephen Spouse and Diana Vreeland, whose rouged earlobes he recalled by jutting out his chin in approximation of the editor’s regal hauteur.
Pandora embarks on a shiny new adventure in eco-friendly jewelleryJewellery has a new spirit. Women aren’t sitting around waiting for a box to be pulled from behind a suited back—they’re going out and buying the pieces they want for themselves. No one understands this liberation better than Pandora, which was founded in Copenhagen in 1982 and is now a multi-billion-dollar mega brand built on jewellery that costs less than $100 apiece. It didn’t reach that level of success by sitting still.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
