Sustainable Canadian Fashion Designers


By Angela Wallace

I recently attended Connect Beauty, Toronto’s premiere sustainable fashion and non-toxic beauty event. The runway show featured many local fashion designers, most of which were inspiring, refreshing and encouraging to all those who wish to see more design-led green fashion.

With that inspiring event in mind, I’m rounding up the best of summer style with what I think are the three best sustainable Canadian Fashion Designers, just in time for Canada Day.

Just click through the numbers above to see the full list!


“The S/S14 collection was influenced in part by a trip to France last summer,” designer Melanie Ferrara said of her recent collection for her brand, Vespertine. “I watched the women in their 30s and 40s- there was an easy elegance in the way they dressed, and their ability to bring polish to an outfit just through simple details.” Ferrara sourced bolt end fabrics, using “tonal linen floral jacquard and border-printed pastel chiffon with metallic ink.” She brought these together with more conventionally sourced eco fabrics including tencel, modal and organic cotton. The resulting collection consists of structured, feminine and figure flattering designs.
