WELCOME TO BLONDIE APPAREL

{ WHO ARE THE BLONDIES? }

Owners, Brodie and Michelle started Blondie Apparel in 2014 when they released their first collection of basic infinity scarves. The idea was to offer interested retailers a fun and unique Canadian made clothing line. More recent collections have grown to include sweaters, shirts, ponchos, dresses and toques. High quality fabrics are hand picked, aiming to offer must-have pieces in every season.

Michelle studied fashion design at Montreal’s LaSalle College. Shortly after graduating, she started her own line of women’s clothing, selling to a few small retailers in the Ottawa region. She continued her handmade line for another few years in stores and online before collaborating with Brodie and finally merging Vandentillaart Clothing with Blondie Apparel at the end 2016.

Brodie studied small business management in school and comes from a family of entrepreneurs. Growing up in a small business gave her a comfort and familiarity with independent business ownership that has proven to be very valuable. She opened her first retail clothing store in 2007 and second one 2012. She now co-owns Blondie and owns doree’s habit in Almonte, ON

{ OUR DESIGNS }

If we are being totally honest, we don't think of ourselves as incredibly fashionable. We are definitely comfort motived and this comes through in all of our designs. Every detail is considered in the design process with an emphasis on quality and ease of use.

We design everything in house, literally, at Brodie's house over guac and ciders most likely. Once we have a concept, which is usually born out of a need that one of us has for a particular piece, we get to working on the sample.

While we are working on the design, we are considering the best fabric for the piece.

{ OUR FABRICS }

We choose each of our fabrics carefully to work perfectly with the design and function of the piece. Everything is considered from fabric content to how it feels. We aren't the biggest fans of high maintenance clothing so we are careful to ensure our finished products will be easy to care for and will last.

We are passionate about Canada and for that reason 70% of our fabrics are made at a local mill in Toronto. The remaining 30% are sourced from Canadian fabric suppliers.

{ OUR HELPERS }

For the first 3 years of business we made 100% of our product in our basement studio. We were fortunate to grow enough to the point that we needed to seek out help for cutting and sewing. As of 2017 we work closely with a small manufacturer in Toronto that is owned and operated by two amazing women to bring Blondie to you!

{ OUR CUSTOMERS }

Our customers are amazing and we are grateful every day that we get such unwavering support which allows us to do what we love. The ultimate compliment and testament to our line is that many fans have a variety of pieces and even multiples of each style.

We are based in Eastern Ontario
