Sarah will be discussing LOCAL WOMAN, her made-to-order clothing line that takes inspiration from an elegant timelessness, and embraces a dedication to artisanship, whimsy, and tradition, established in 2020.
The collections are small-run and often limited-edition. Emphasis is placed on sourcing unique and occasionally upcycled and deadstock fabrics.
The brands core values are slow growth, local production, and an ongoing goal of sustainability.
Sewists and technical designers are Toronto-based, and paid a living wage. The line is designed in Toronto, Canada, and is exclusively hand-built, with great attention to detail. The made-to-order model encourages obtaining only what is needed for production - with off-cuts treated as precious, and used for design of other items. Nothing goes to waste, and resourcefulness is celebrated.
LOCAL WOMAN’s philosophy is that small movements can lead to big change.
