At SBD, We maintain slow fashion with thoughtful, made to order pieces that are all handmade in Canada. Each piece is created to be different, sleek, functional but also carefully crafted.
We make a conscience effort to purchase our fabrics from small and local businesses as well as buy remnant fabric in order to keep waste to a minimum.
Courtney graduated George Brown College in the Fashion Techniques and Design program with awards for Academic Excellence and Pattern Drafting. She also has an honours degree in English and Business. During her time at George Brown, she won a scholarship position for a two month intern position at the fashion headquarters of Daniela Dallavalle in Italy, and created a mini collection for the George Brown Threads fashion show. Although formal training has impacted her skill, she first gained her passion for creating through watching her grandmother make clothing.
Subsequently, she has enjoyed designing since she was young and has amalgamated her passion for designing with the skills she has learned at school in order to expand her vision.
In honour of the founder's
