Watch: Our Fashion Closet Got a Big Makeover From EQ3!

FLARE’s drab fashion closet was a complete disaster—until our fave Canadian decor retailer gave it the picture-perfect makeover

Thanks to The Devil Wears Prada, you may have assumed the FLARE fashion closet—where we unpack, sort and store the clothes and accessories we borrow for our shoots—to be a sleek sartorial mecca. It was not…until EQ3 stepped in. Fast-forward a few weeks, and we now have ultra-organized workspaces for our interns (who track every item that goes in and out), a beauty station where we can test products and, best of all—thanks to clever shelving and multi-functional pieces—more space to plot out the drama you see on our pages.

Now that we’re all done up, we’d like to invite you in: follow us on Twitter (@FLAREfashion) and Instagram (flaremag) for on-the-fly tutorials and sneak peeks of our upcoming shoots, live from the new #FLARE×EQ3 fashion closet. Scroll down to see the before and afters, watch a tour of the amazing new space and for a special promo code to shop at EQ3!
