TORI•XO to showcase at London Fashion Week | Showroom Canada
Inaugural Digital Showroom Canada Announced
11 Fashion Brands Selected to Represent Canada
London, United Kingdom, January 13, 2021 – The High Commission of Canada in the United Kingdom, in collaboration with the Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI), the Department of Canadian Heritage, and the Canadian Apparel Federation, are launching Showroom Canada, a digital, wholesale showroom, on February 16, 2021, ahead of London Fashion Week.
Showroom Canada marks an exciting new initiative for Canada's fashion industry, bringing world-class fashion to a global audience of 200,000 retailers. The digital showroom will be hosted on JOOR, one of the industry’s leading B2B wholesale platforms.
The showroom’s 11 featured brands are FREED, FURB UPCYCLED, FURIOUS FUR, JOEFFER CAOC, KATE AUSTIN, KUWALLA TEE, MAISON MARIE SAINT PIERRE, SHELLI OH, SID NEIGUM, TORI.XO, and UNTTLD. Located in Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and Nova Scotia, they represent top-tier talent in apparel and accessories with a strong focus on sustainable materials and innovative design.
“We are delighted to partner once again with the Toronto Fashion Incubator for our highly anticipated biannual celebration of Canadian fashion. Showroom Canada brings top-class Canadian designs to the United Kingdom, in an all-new innovative digital way. The participating designers feature all that Canada’s fashion industry has to offer, including our vibrant diversity, commitment to the environment, innovation and so much more,” says Her Excellency Mrs Janice Charette, High Commissioner for Canada to the United Kingdom.
“Traditionally, the wholesale buying experience has happened offline, but the pandemic caused both designers and retailers to quickly pivot,” says Susan Langdon, Executive Director, TFI. “Showroom Canada will give Canadian brands access to thousands of global retailers including key UK targets such as Net-a-Porter, Selfridges, and Harvey Nichols. This is an exciting new chapter for the Canadian fashion industry.”
Many thanks for nomination for the RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Women of Influence Awards.
