TORONTO — For the first time in its 22-year history, Toronto’s Fashion Incubator has crowned a specialty collection geared to women with larger bust lines as the winner of its New Labels competition for emerging designers.
Miriam Baker, 27, nabbed the contest’s prize of 25,000 Canadian dollars, or $23,000, for her tailored AliceAzur line, which featured vintage-looking sheaths in black, white and cream; retro circle skirts in tweed and organza, and ladylike coats and capes enlivened by pops of pink.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
