It was a new beginning for Soha Lavin when she arrived in Canada from Tehran at just 13 years old, but little did she know she would go on to create fairy-tale beginnings for others once she grew up. While the event planner’s palette may feature mostly white gowns and veils, Lavin’s day-to-day style is more often than not basic black. “Black is not just a colour; it’s the cut, the fit, the fabric,” says this style maven, who counts 58 everyday black dresses in her wardrobe. Sounds like a classic match made in heaven.What’s your favourite piece of clothing? My Greta Constantine black dress from Wardrobe Apparel in Gastown . It’s one of my favourite Canadian labels right now. They really know how to dress women with flattering cuts, shapes, and fabrics.Which designer do you love the most? Tom Ford. He’s so obsessive and meticulous with his designs; it makes you feel like a sculpture wearing them.Your favourite wedding dress style? Looking and being feminine is once again in style. So any design that hugs the body in a soft, classy, and feminine way is fabulous!What is your most recent splurge for your home? I have just commissioned a moody art piece by local Farsi artistE. Hesabi that I’m super-excited about.Your favourite local brand? I love and adore Obakki and what the owner, Treana Peake, stands for.What article of clothing must every bride have this season? A proper train—there’s no need to play shy about the size of your train any longer! Long, cathedral-length trains are totally on trend.
