About Us

Marcus and Stephen-Thomas are the brains behind à la mode. Here are some things you need to know about them.


After earning an Economics degree, Marcus created a la mode as a hobby at the end of 2009 and has not looked back. He has had the honour of featuring some of the best artists and designers in the world, as well as international fashion houses including Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, Calvin Klein and Gucci

Readers were captivated with the fashion illustrations featured on a la mode and seeing such a strong interest in fashion illustration, Marcus launched Draw a Dot. in 2012, which houses a constantly growing collection of brilliant illustrations both on its website and popular instagram account.

Marcus’s third site was launched in mid 2014 and pays tribute to his other addiction, food. Food Tour 101 highlights some of the best dishes, desserts and drinks in a range of Toronto eateries.

Marcus continues to bring his readers timely, relevant and creative content across his three banners while also acting as the producer behind other sites.

Springing off of his degree in Retail Business Management, Stephen-Thomas has worked for a range of Canadian and US retailers participating in sales management, marketing and visual merchandising. His entrepreneurial spirit leads his curiosity in the realm of product development, production and marketing.

In early 2014 Stephen-Thomas began to write guest posts for a la mode covering various topics and looks forward to taking on a larger role as a la mode continues to grow. His own site, STM, launched in October 2014 and includes interviews with up and comers in the fashion and retail world.
