We love fashion at UKDESIGNERSALE so much that we bring the latest and most fun British creations right here to Toronto. These are all unique and one off fashion pieces that we source from small design studios in London, England.
Most of these items are hand made by sample sewers – others are pre production or small size runs – which means that they are all very limited edition, and mostly there is only one ever made! You’ll see that every piece is unique – the fabrics are mostly European – and the cut and finish of the garments is incredibly sophisticated.
Everything is available at our permanent Beaches store in the east end of Toronto – we also open POP UP stores throughout the year at various locations throughout the GTA – sign up at instagram@ukdsfashion for the latest news!
It all started in 2002 with us introducing our family and friends in Canada to the amazing fashions being produced in the UK. We were running our own fashion company in London, designing and sampling new prototype styles each week – of which only a few would go into production. With an idea to create an outlet for all these creative and singular excess fashions we started hosting POP UP sales in hotels, then adding POP UP boutiques – building up a dedicated following of British Fashion fans!
We have worked with these fashion studios for many years. They are our friends, employing professional and talented fashion designers, sample sewers, cutters, pattern cutters, fabric buyers and garment technicians and it’s a joy to see what creativity and originality looks like – we love opening our new shipments!
