18 of the top Canadian fashion designers everyone should know about

See who made it to the list of our all-time favourite home-grown designers, and your comprehensive guide on where to shop these Canadian fashion labels online.

When it comes to fashion in the true north, Canada has raised the bar with its impressive list of designers and brands that continue to storm the globe. Of course, we’re not famed for dominating the High Street, but whatever our shortfall in that area, we more than make up for in genuine homegrown fashion flair. And we know exactly how to benchmark our style.

Canadian fashion is an art in its own right. Toronto plays host to an acclaimed Fashion Week on a bi-annual basis. Whilst this anticipated event has changed hands and been re-branded numerous times since its debut in 1985, it remains a focal Canadian celebration of artistic talent.

With Canadian style on the rise, there’s no time like the present to start spending some of your hard earned cash on those statement pieces you’ve been lusting after. Dust off those credit cards and put them to good use.

Looking for a little inspiration? You’re certainly in the right place. Revamp your wardrobe with apparel and accessories designed by the best in Canadian fashion for this season and beyond. Here are 18 of our designers for you to consider:
