SARA ARMSTRONG is an interdisciplinary artist who practices in both fashion and industrial design. Armstrong creates ready to wear pieces for Men and Women, with an androgynous blur, loyal to the functionality of heritage craftsmanship and welcoming of innovative details.

Lucid yet intuitive, Sara’s work is hinged upon a tactile, hand-worked approach to design and an uncompromising appreciation for authenticity and quality.
Outside of the SARARMSTRONG brand, Armstrong is working as the head technical design instructor at a Fashion Design school in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

CHRISTMAS CAPSULE Promo - Nadya Toto
Nadya Toto launched her ready-to-wear label in 1989. She creates clothing that celebrates femininity while combining both comfort and refinement. The signature style of this designer of Italian origin is sophisticated yet minimalist, ultra-feminine, and decidedly romantic. Distributed across Canada and the United States, Nadya Toto’s collections have garnered media attention from around the world, featured in such prestigious publications as Madame Figaro (France), Fashion Daily News (France), Vogue Italia, and Vogue USA.
Moreover, a host of celebrities have been seen wearing Nadya Toto’s clothing at media events. Trend-setting Quebec stars have fallen for Toto’s designs; to mention medalist athlete Joannie Rochette. American luminaries Angelina Jolie, Drew Barrymore, Yasmine Bleeth, and Rachelle Lefèvre, better known for her role in the Twilight saga have also succumbed to the charm of this designer’s creations.
Eye of Needle was founded and is created solely by Wendy Cook.
She was born and raised on Vancouver Island and moved to the mainland in the early 2000’s to pursue a career as a wardrobe stylist. She is a self taught designer and bead weaver who’s designs are inspired by her love of fashion, her rich family history, art and nature. Her typically bold and large designs show her love for fashion editorials. Her work mainly consists of off loom pieces generally made out of Japanese Muyuki Delica glass beads, sterling silver, brass and re-purposed materials.
Wendy currently resides in Vancouver BC.
