Tomorrow is the big day! The preparations for the fashion show at MOCA OCT.7th at 7pm are coming along with help from tons of pros and great friends! The show will feature over twenty models!!!! It's going to be huge!! it's only fitting that we share christopher Paul's Bold Bean Fashion Week Q&A today...because Christopher has a huge heart!! Christopher Paul holds it down at Bold Bean with a constant smile and kind words. If you want a pick me up this bae will serve you up an espresso with a dash of sweetness! 

 

Chai HEART Bold Bean!!

 

Meet Christopher Paul!

 

Christopher has been a Barista at Bold Bean for two years; loves Guatemalan Asodiett and has strong feelings about VELVET SHORTS! He just might be the sweetest pea in the pod!

 

 

What is your favorite BB beverage for fall?

We have an amazing Single Origin Espresso on right now, the Guatemalan Asodiett, it’s got a great honey sweetness and a smooth body. Perfect for Fall or any season!

 

What are your origins as a Barista?

I’ve worked in coffee for years on more of [the] retail side. [I] transitioned to a barista role about two years ago,  I love it, it’s completely changed my relationship with coffee.

 

What is one thing you will never wear again?

Velvet shorts, I think that’s the sweatiest I’ve ever been… :X Ya’ll velvet freaks can keep those, so soft but so sweaty.

 

What’s one thing you will never stop wearing?

Denim on Denim. I’m a massive fan of the ever versatile Canadian Tux. Wedding? Casual Party? Baby Shower? None changing ceremony? The canadian tux is your best friend.

 

How does your life influence your style?

Working with coffee has made me more of a practical dresser, it has to be comfortable and able to resist those coffee stains but I also still want to present myself decently. Fashion is great because as quiet/ shy guy it can sometimes act as the voice I have a hard time finding.

The Celebration steams ahead as we inch closer to Next Wednesdays' Fashion Show at MOCA! Continuing on this visual journey Chloe may not be a Barista at Bold Bean but she represents a very important part of the coffee shop, CUSTOMERS!! Lookin' all fierce Chloe and a friend made their way to Bold Bean as the shoot progressed unbeknownst to them . I loved their style so much I asked Luis to snap a few pics. They agreed and WOW! what a magical result, this image screams fall! Netflix, chill and oogle over Chloe! Happy Sunday!

Q & A WITH CHLOE

What is your favorite BB beverage for fall?

It's typical, but there's nothing like a dirty chai, it tastes like Christmas. Luckily Bold Bean has the best one around, I started drinking it iced when I got sick of the heat and missed the comfort of the holidays.

What is one thing you will never wear again?

A padded bra.

What’s one thing you will never stop wearing?

A black skater skirt, I'm wearing one right now. It's simple so you can look as fancy or as casual as you want. It twirls when you spin and it's comfy enough to sleep in if you have to.

How does your life influence your style?

I'm a little scattered, so my style is constantly changing. But I try and dress according to the mood I want to be in. If I'm feeling down, I'll wear the brightest, bounciest dress
