Anneke Forbes Anneke Forbes, Designer What inspired you to start this business? Whether my parents know it or not, they were definitely the inspiration behind the launch of my line of outerwear in 2015. My father’s passing pushed forward the realization that life is short. I was tired of spending my days working jobs that weren’t quite right and ready to take a risk on my dream. The outerwear focus is thanks to my mother. Of all my fashion school creations, the one garment that captured my heart was a fuchsia coat that featured bound buttonholes. That detail was inspired … Continued

Ashley Nadalin Designs Ashley Bagg, Owner What inspired you to start this business? Calgary. For so long I was tinkering around in my basement, experimenting and starting to get an idea of what sorts of things I was even capable of making.

We started our business before the materials we used were popular and being featured by other businesses, so we were able to get into that niche market. We like … Continued

Lavish Society Co. Jane, Co-Owner What inspired you to start this business? The idea started when we (Jane and her sister Jean) were picking out a bouquet of flowers to give to our mother. It was our parents’ 30th wedding anniversary, and we wanted to buy a super elaborate rose bouquet, but we were struggling with the idea of spending so much money on something that wasn’t going to last more than a week. We started looking at alternatives when we stumbled across preserved roses. We knew immediately that this could change the game of rose-gifting. Rose arrangement boxes became our … Continued
