Yorkville fashion hub Homegrown Boutique is expanding its roster of Canadian design talent.
The boutique has announced that for the Spring/Summer 2012 season, it’s adding the collections of four Canadian designers to its lineup of fashionable offerings.
The new lines include:
- LABEL Clothing– a clothing line produced in Toronto by designers Shawna Robinson and Natalie Sydoruk, who focus on offering clothing that’s comfortable, sustainable and wearable.
- Anu Raina – a Toronto-based designer whose pieces incorporate bold prints and a variety of textures.
- Denis Gagnon – a popular Montreal-based designer well-known for dramatic collections that typically incorporate leather, silk and floral prints.
- Melissa Nepton – a designer based in Montreal whose label got its start when she was cast in La Collection, Québec’s version of Project Runway, a couple years ago. Her collections are designed to be feminine, comfortable and practical, targeting urban career women.
Homegrown Boutique, which opened in July 2011 (A patriotic boutique), is dedicated to the promotion and growth of Canadian designers. A cozy little shop on Cumberland Street, it currently carries the collections of seven different Montreal and Toronto-based designers.
