Do you know the people and places that make up the fabric of your community? A great part of living in Toronto is discovering the faces and places that make up your local ‘hood. We popped in for a chat with a few successful business owners in Bayview, Mt. Pleasant, and Leaside. Here’s what they had to say:
Why did you start a travel clothing line for women?
Frustrated by the lack of multi-purpose, wrinkle-resistant clothing suitable for both business meetings and elegant evenings out, I created my clothing line, Helene Clarkson, for the sophisticated traveler. Our fashion-packed collection of dresses, skirts, tops, and pants aims to maximize versatility while remaining comfortable and stylish while traveling for business or pleasure.
Why are female travellers loving your designs?
Whether traveling across town or across the ocean, our pieces have multi-wear possibilities for any occasion. Customers keep coming back for three main reasons:
- Reversible: Many of our styles are made to be reversible, inside out or front to back, allowing for multiple looks with just one item
- Day To Night: Our pieces can be dressed up or down for women who are looking to seamlessly transition from a long day of work to an evening out.
- Easy Wear, Easy Care: Our clothing is not only practical and flattering, but also wrinkle-resistant, breathable, quick-drying, machine washable, and non-fading.
Are Helene Clarkson pieces made in Toronto?
Yes, Canada is known for its excellent craftsmanship and we are proud to support the jobs of talented local workers by choosing fabrics from Canadian suppliers and manufacturing our clothes right here in Toronto.
What is the most fulfilling part of your career?
I love hearing that my clothes make a difference to busy women around the globe.
