Style Tip: Discover Canadian Fashion
Like fashion trends, Canadian fashion labels come and go, but many designers are now finding success internationally. We have amazing designers that are changing the way people dress and how they feel about themselves. We will be celebrating Canada Day soon and it is the perfect time to support Canadian fashion too! 

Designed and made in Canada lines like Joseph Ribkoff and Lisette L. are sold around the world. Other notable lines include Softworks, Libra, Parkhurst, Country Cotton, Putorti, Gilmour, Swish, and many more.
Clothing made in Canada is not necessarily cheap, but it is affordable and worthwhile. After running a Boutique specializing in made in Canada fashions for over a decade, our experience has been that Canadian clothing is higher quality and lasts longer than the mass-produced alternatives. We also love the feeling of supporting businesses close to home and in a small way, keeping manufacturing alive in Canada. Remember that we need to support local industries and businesses with our wallets if we want them to stick around!  

Canada is a fashionable country. We have fabulous clothing designers and manufacturers employing home-grown talent and enriching local economies from coast-to-coast. Shop local and look for the made in Canada label to support our fashion industry; you will look and feel great when you do!
