"Fashion is something that comes from within you." - Ralph Lauren
Clothing is a statement. It's an expression of who you are, your personality, and what you're into. Everyone has a unique style that gives off a little piece of who they are. Whether you are into baggy shirts and backwards hats or you're like Victoria Beckham and "can't think in flats."
Of course, Calgary isn't quite as fashion-oriented as New York, London, Paris, or Milan, but we can sure kick it with the best of them when it comes to our local clothing brands and shops. Calgary has a wide selection of locally-owned apparel lines and shops that are definitely worth the visit and guaranteed to have you killing the fashion game, no matter your style.
Here in Calgary, we strive to "Do Well, Live Well & Dress Really Well." And I can tell you, these local brands and shops can help you do exactly that and then some.
