Our philosophy from the beginning was “work to play”, which I think clearly defines how we each live – and perhaps why we became friends in the first place. We work hard. We play well. And we love both. And why not have a goal of “more trips to Paris during Fashion Week for inspiration” or “fabric sourcing in Montreal during Jazz season” as your bright, orange-cloth carrot at the end of a long, winding (often tangled) thread?
In the meantime, we’re trying to convince the men that our upcoming “girls only” trip to Paris will be all business. All research, sketching, getting inspired… Do we have to go all the way to Paris for that? No, but it’s a hardship we’re willing to suffer. Perhaps with the odd cocktail in hand.
