Episode 1: A Mental Marathon

Peggy Hickman suffers from schizophrenia, but discovers that marathon training is an effective way to quite literally run away from the voices inside her head. 


Episode 2: Tami Varma

If you’ve been to a wild, elegant, over-the-top, barn-burner in Ottawa, chances are the party was planned by Tami Varma. She’s the creative mind behind some of the city’s most sexy and swanky affairs – which is also perfect way to describe her personal fashion style. 

Episode 3: Dominique Baker

Few people dominate the Ottawa fashion scene like Dominique Baker. Sporting a popular fashion blog and YouTube channel, not to mention an impressive roster of clients, it’s no wonder beauty brands and major retailers are clamouring to know what she’ll do – and wear – next.

Episode 4: Stefan Keyes

You won’t find a man in Ottawa who treads through as many threads as Stefan Keyes. As an actor, singer, radio host, news anchor and morning show host, he keeps his wardrobe stocked with versatile and trendy choices to keep up with his public-facing professions. 

Episode 5: Helena-Alexis Seymour

As an actress who has appeared in everything from an Oscar-winning films (Birdman), blockbusters (XxX: The Return of Xander Cage)  and several TV series, Helena-Alexis Seymour dishes on how to best dress for auditions, red carpets, and everyday life in Ottawa. 

Episode 6: Alexandra Badzak

The Ottawa Art Gallery is getting massive $100M makeover, and it’s all coming together under the watchful eye of executive director Alexandra Badzak. Alternating between swanky fundraisers and sweaty construction sites, she proves you never have to compromise fashion – or safety – when dressing for the job.
