I've emerged from the most beautiful Autumn in Ontario, from a sweet studio overlooking the evolution of the Museum of Contemporary Art down the street.....dreaming and holding vision for this work. The pieces this season are all made with cashmere and merino wool sweaters collected, scavenged and reclaimed in 2016. It is with pleasure that I present them in their new sartorial form! Come visit in person if you can (Where to Find) or yes yes we're steady on the interwebs here too. Take good care XOXO
It's up! 40-70% OFF the Winter Collection as well as further reduced prices on our Summer Collection just in time for the warmer weather. Check it out!
For all of you that we met on our Wool Tour this Fall, THANK YOU! This winter was not so deep in terms of the weather but ohlala, have been asking the big questions, looking deep at the large issues so the hibernation has felt very real. Still emerging, slowly up through the deep towards the light. Here in Toronto we still have a bit of snow...and probably even a touch more this weekend.
Take excellent care of yourself and each other. These are important days. We are grateful for you.
We are so happy to share the new pieces and visuals with you. This summer has been incredibly rich with luck and love and it is flowing straight through into this winter work. The new full body knicks are thanks especially to my early rising hens...I'll write more about that another time.
We have no doubt the work of scavenging, upcycling and being resourceful is of paramount importance in the world right now. All these pieces are made with merino wool and cashmere sweaters otherwise headed for a machine that rips holes in them, to be shipped overseas. These fine wool fibres that royal families used to trade herds of sheep for, it's crazy!
We hope these pieces will help you remember how special you are. ROYAL. XOXO

Here's our crew heading down to the spot on the Humber River, to shoot the new summer collection of swimsuits. In this midst of this metropolis all the nature still finds a way...we saw ducks and lots of red winged blackbirds...and people canoeing even! Here's to a great summer ahead::::::::
we are happy to be a part of this great initiative, held on April 24th of each year, to "raise awareness of the true cost of fashion, show the world that change is possible and most of all, celebrate all those involved in creating a more sustainable future."
on April 24th 2013, 1133 people died in the Rana Plaza catastrophe in Dhaka, Bangladesh. a further 2500 were injured. they were killed while working for familiar fashion brands in one of the many ‘accidents’ that plague the garment industry. we can change things so these kinds of accidents do not happen.
there are many ways to tune in and take part www.fashionrevolution.org
