Plan a visit at my Boutique
I will be happy to meet you and share my passion.
The best of everything is made right here in Ontario.
Since very young I have been surrounded by Fashion: My grandmother was a hat maker, and my mother was a seamstress. I grew up in France submersed in textiles and fashion “ateliers” (a cutting board, myriad types of scissors, thimbles, 3 or 4 different sewing machines, mannequins, spools, and meters upon metres of fabric…).
After graduating from high school, I went to Paris to study fashion, model design and manufacturing: Centre de formation de Modelisme (CFM) de Paris (1982-1984).
Directly after this I attended a school to study costume design (Paris - 1 year), and this led me to assume a position as head Costume Designer at Club Med for 2 years from 1985 to 1987. I Worked in Europe and Mexico during this period before returning to Paris in 1988 where I was hired as Chef D’Atelier at Ledel Design (1988 -1989) responsible for a line of women Trench coats and outdoor apparel.
In 1989 I moved to Canada where I started out first in High End Fashion Canadian designers, working for Loukas KLEANTHOUS and then for ZAPATA (owned and run by the spouse of Geddy Lee from RUSH).
But I quickly transitioned to become a designer and pattern maker for ROOTS Canada reporting directly to Michael Budman and Don Green for leather goods, Coats and the Continental sportswear women line. I held this job for 3 years before moving back to France in 1994.
From 1994 to 1997 – Head of Creation and Design at Adolphe Lafont (Work Apparel)
From 1997 to 1999 – Responsible for Outsourcing and Quality at Sergeant Major (Children Clothes)
From 2000 to 2018 – Bespoke Wedding dress designs and tailoring as well as the design and production of Synchronised swimsuits.
The wearer can adapt the design to match their personality and the coat use, through the choice of the fabric:
-Trendy or Classic chic for spring and summer with a leggings or a jean.
- Lace, light and semi sheer to be worn as an accessory over a swimsuit at the pool or by the lake.
- Pastel and delicate colours to be worn over a formal dress to cover the shoulders
- Heavier, thicker and more plush for fall to be worn over a sweater
- Solid colours to fit in an ensemble of patterns to become the key fashion accessory and statement
- Wear it to feel Confident Chic and Féminine.
