When it comes to fashion in North America, Canadian fashion labels weren’t to be the first choice to a lot of people. Especially at the age when fast fashion brands from Europe and the US, like forever 21, H&M and Zara, have been expanding like fireworks in Canada’s local
market. However, in recent years, Canada has raised the bar with its impressive list of designers and brands that continue to storm the globe.
Of course, we’re not famed for dominating the High Street, but whatever our shortfall in that area, we more than make up for in genuine homegrown fashion flair. And we know exactly how to benchmark our style.
