This New Toronto Pop-Up Celebrates Home-Grown Talent
We always love to support Canadian talent and the Hudson’s Bay is making it easier than ever with their newest pop-up shop, which features 12 designers from across the country. THE COLLECTIONS™, a Toronto-based fashion production agency who helped curate the collection, hand-selected pieces that span a variety of styles.
From the sleek monochrome pieces by Atelier Guarin to the rich colourful patterns by Hilary MacMillan, the collection promises a wide selection of apparel that will suit a variety of tastes. There are even unisex pieces from whimsical WRKDEPT and a selection of jewelry from Biko and Cuchara.
Each of these brands has a very strong voice and this pop-up is an opportunity to browse pieces that you might not have the chance to otherwise. By spotlighting Canadian designers, the Hudson’s Bay is helping to promote home-grown high fashion.
“As Canada’s fashion authority, we have a responsibility to support the incredible design talent within our country,” said Allison Coville, president of the department store. “This is a pivotal opportunity for Hudson’s Bay to celebrate Canadian designers on a national platform.”
To celebrate the launch, there will be a presentation in the RE\SETTM Studio during Toronto Fashion Week on September 4th showcasing exclusive pieces from the pop-up. Then the collection will be available online and in the Vancouver, Yorkdale, Chinook, Montreal and Queen Street stores.
Below we introduce you to the 12 talented designers that are being featured. Make sure to stop by the pop-up to support the best that Canada has to offer.
