About us

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.

At shopukdesignersale we have just a small selection of our favourite one off pieces which we’ll be adding to constantly – but you can also visit us at our our Flagship store in The Beaches, Toronto for a larger variety of styles – and look out for our pop up locations across Toronto! 

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!

  1. Hi there. I live in the beaches and I am really hoping you will keep your store going when this crisis is over. I really appreciate the responsible approach you have taken in closing the store – these are hard times for small businesses in our community. . Good luck! See you soon I hope.

  2. Hi Myra, I am in Oshawa also making masks and was about to drop them off the completed masks at Micheal Garron hospital. I have left over fabric and masks that are partially made with the exception of the elastics as I have run out of elastic. I can deliver masks that are partially completed and donate the remaining fabric I have to you OR I can continue making the masks and leave the elastics for you to sew on. I can stop by and drop off if you would like to make arrangements. Let me know what you think!
