Chic of the Week
Model, radio host, singer, songwriter, philanthropist…these are just some of the many hats our “Chic of the Week” wears. Multi-talented Meredith Shaw is as lovely as she is talented. Born and raised in Toronto, this curvy beauty’s singing lead her to pursue fashion, empowerment and entrepreneurship. Model with B&M Model Management and host of the #1 Weekend Show in Toronto on Boom 97.3, Meredith is also the founder of Girls Who Believe Fest, a music festival to empower young girls and the creative director of Muffymade greeting cards.
The past two years have been a whirlwind for Meredith. After releasing her critically-acclaimed debut album, Place Called Happy, she embarked on an extensive tour with Big Sugar, criss-crossing the content. She’s currently releasing a series of three-song Eps coined “Tringles” with special guest artists and producers. 2 of the 3 EP’s in the “Tringles” series have been released and the second, titled “Hardest Goodbye,” was released most recently, produced by John-Angus Macdonald of “The Trews”.
Meredith is our chic of the week because she understands and embodies the Addition Elle motto of a “fashion democracy.”
Fashion Democracy means that we all deserve access to style in our size. Why does it make sense for women under a size 12 to have anything they want at any pricepoint but us curvier girls have to make do with a more limited selection? The style doesn’t change, we just need a little more fabric! Bring on the democracy!
Her fashion must-have?
My denim jacket. I have a lot dresses in my closet and i feel like throwing on a lil’ pop of denim takes them from fancy to casual in a quick flash. (Can i have two? pretty please?) My Cowboy boots that i bought from a vintage shop in Nashville. why? bc girls in dusty cowboy boots are hot. ’nuff said.
