TAIT THE GREAT

Elle (Canada) - - Style -

The LVMH Young Fash­ion De­signer Prize win­ner is on top of the world—but there are still a few things that Lon­don-based Thomas Tait misses about his

home­town, Mon­treal.

1. “The sun­shine—that’s some­thing we don’t get that much of in Lon­don. Maybe I’m miss­ing my vi­ta­min D

more than any­thing!” 2. “There’s a ve­gan restau­rant in Mon­treal called Aux Vivres. I took my dad there with­out telling him it’s veg­e­tar­ian

be­cause other­wise he would never have gone, and

he ab­so­lutely loved it!” 3. “As a kid, I spent a lot of time

at One Mil­lion Comix, just off Sainte-Cather­ine Street, flip­ping through the il­lus­tra­tions. I was

re­ally big into draw­ing.” 4. “I miss my fam­ily. My sis­ter’s a cop, so I kind of miss sit­ting in the back of her cruiser and pre­tend­ing to the people driv­ing in the next lane

that I’m a crim­i­nal!” 5. “Mon­treal’s Old Port has great bou­tiques and bak­eries.

When I was in col­lege, I worked at a bou­tique called Re­born, so I spent a lot of

time in that area.”
