Clients:  The Boutiques on this list are in no particular order of preference or quality.  They represent the best in many different styles and sectors.  Please click on the links to see the individual designer’s websites and most up-to-date photos of their collections.  This way you can decide which appeal to your taste and budget.  Then take your list and go shopping!

Designers:  My intention in making this list was to promote locally-made Montreal fashion.  It is hard to find us in a simple google search.  I had no idea when I started, that this document would take me over 50 hours of research and phone calls to produce.  I did it because I believe that if we promote each other, we can all rise up together. Please share widely.  If at any time you would like to be removed from this list, please call 514-678-9616 and ask for Katrin.

Made from authentic Dutch wax prints by Vlisco Holland, this skirt is a piece of art.  Planets and Space adorn the front and the back in white, purple and beige.  It is meant to be worn high at the waist and there are two button options on the waistband. With deep pockets on either side, this skirt is both pretty and highly functional.  It is trimmed in brown mesh.
