The Top 10 Canadian Fashion Designers
10 fashion designers influencing the world’s style from our home and native land.
by : ELLE Canada- Jun 28th, 2017
While Canadians are generally the first to point out our homegrown fashion designers who have made it abroad — hey there, Erdem! — we’re always proud to draw attention to the names and labels that maintain their home base right here in Canada. We rounded up the top ten Canadian fashion designers who are continually elevating our national profile — here and abroad — as they design world-class collections from their local studios.
Canadian fashion label: Greta Constantine
The designers: Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong
Signature look: Sleek and minimalist; jersey is a favourite fabric
Why we love them: The name—a hybrid of Wong’s mother, Greta, and Pickersgill’s grandfather, Constantine—is as inextricably linked to Canadian fashion as much as its architectural, feminine designs.

Canadian fashion designer: Sid Neigum
Launched line: 2009
Signature look: Fluid, sharp androgyny
Why we love him: The Alberta-born artist is all about the blurred lines, finely oscillating between extremes—high and low, edgy and sweet—with refined craftsmanship and youthful edge.
Canadian fashion designer: Beaufille
