Toronto-based designers Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong first met in Toronto and became fast friends. Sensing that the current state of Canadian fashion was in decline, they sought to pursue their lifelong dreams of starting their own label, Greta Constantine.
Since the label was started in 2006, Pickersgill and Wong have rapidly accumulated a loyal clientele comprised of women from all walks looking for an accessible luxury line of ready-to-wear women’s wear created within Canada.
The name itself is derived from the combination of the name of Stephen’s mother, Greta, with that of Kirk’s grandfather, Constantine. The pair works together in their Toronto area studio where they conceptualize, explore, and challenge the fashions of today for the women of tomorrow.
Just in time for the holidays, Greta Constantine will be offering an exclusive collection of customizable pieces in partnership with Vancouver-based fashion boutique, Wardrobe Apparel. The liquid metallics in the new collection, not to mention their ready-to-wear micro-fibre knits, are perfect for the holidays.
By adding alterations, changes, and additions, any garmet from the collection can be customized into a haute couture vision either in-store at Wardrobe Apparel’s Gastown boutique or through their website.
