About

pretty dresses and pretty cats

isn't that what life is all about? well, probably not, but definitely at the top of my list!

before launching my brand in 2013, i worked as a designer for a few different montreal brands for nearly 12 years. it was a great experience, and i learned so much about the industry, but i started to feel somewhat disconnected from the mainstream fashion industry. all of a sudden, it felt too big and too fast, and kind of silly. i wasn't feeling as connected with each design as i wanted. i realized the only way to regain my connection, was to slow down and give each style my full attention. it was then that i left the corporate world and crossed over to the warm and fuzzy world of independent design.

it's no secret that my sewing skills are, well, not great. for 12 years all of my designs were manufactured overseas. its a little like starting all over again, but its very important to me, that all of my garments be made in montreal. i've made great new connections, with local small scale sewing collectives, pattern makers, and cutters. who knew? you can actually make stuff right here in canada.

as im still in the very early stages of starting my small business, i am working from home, which luckily is an industrial style loft with huge windows. i no longer have a dining room... industrial cutting tables take up a lot of space. i cut all of the production my self. i like to be sure patterns are aligned and fabric is free of flaws.

for now my focus is on vintage inspired dresses. im hoping to add blouses and skirts in the near future. i use high quality fabrics, many of which are woven in italy. my goal is to use natural fibers, as much as possible, such as cotton, linen, and silk.

Hi! I'm Amanda! I'm originally from Newfoundland, but moved to Montreal to pursue a career in fashion. I've worked for some pretty big companies for the past 12 years, but now I'm crossing over to the warm and fuzzy world of independent design.
My focus is mainly on dresses. I follow my instincts, rather than chasing after passing trends, to create timeless styling. Using high quality materials and putting a strong emphasis on workmanship and finishing is very important to me.
