Heather’s love of everything vintage, from cars to clothing, textiles to tattoos, helps her keep the history of fashion alive in her work.

After graduating from The Academy of Design in Toronto, Heather began her career in fashion wholesale as a sales representative for New York designer Ellen Tracy. She went on to launch her own fashion wholesale agency, representing numerous women’s wear collections from Europe, Canada, and the US.
