12 Days of Eurotrash Christmas Giveaway – Every year fashion director of Ukamaku.com, Marcus Kan, enlists a talented artist to conjure up an illustration, springing from a particular Fall/Winter runway collection. Last year it was Alexander McQueen, this year it’s Burberry Prorsum. Receiving one of these postcards is the ultimate holiday treat. The design is kept secret and possessing the postcard is equivalent to being part of some hush-hush fashion circle. Or at least I’m going to equate it to that – you know us eurotrash, always so recondite.
So, in keeping with the secrecy, I’ve decided to reveal each item in the giveaway one-by-one over the span of the next few weeks before Christmas. The first item in the gift bag is a $50 gift card courtesy of Ukamaku, who so generously agreed to let the lucky winner shop online using the one-time discount.
Ukamaku is an online fashion store that features local Canadian designer brands. Here you’ll find stunning pieces by Heidi Ackerman, Caitlin Power, Rachel Sin, DEMOYO, Gardé del Avante, Paris Li, Jenny Greco, MARLU, Breeyn McCarney, OR by Angela Chen, Inna, Nella Bella and Worth by David C Wigley. These are among the leading names in the Canadian fashion industry. A personal favourite is Gardé del Avante – who does stunning runway jewellery pieces. I’ve featured her designs on Eurotrash before, especially all the skull jewels she does! Click here. Of course, Caitlin Power and Rachel Sin have my heart for their fine-tailored, architectural silhouettes.

Not to fear, boys, Ukamaku has stuff for you, too. Nella Bella Stockholm satchel is a winner (and it’s on sale right now so if you win…) and I’d love a guy in Deez Knots neckwear. Or maybe you’ll use the $50 to get introduced to Worth. by David C Wigley, who gets men’s trousers oh-so right.
