Designer Clothier Artist Mother
I aspire to be a leading Canadian fashion designer and
inspire new mindful entrepreneurs to build with the planet, arts and commerce.
I was born in Jelenia Gora, Poland and moved to Toronto with my family in 1992.
I graduated from from Fashion Techniques and Design at George Brown. Upon graduating I worked with renowned designer Lida Baday in Toronto as a design assistant and trained as a fabric buyer.
I have deep ties to city living, but choose to live beautiful a smaller city landscape that resembles my European roots, deeply surrounded by nature.
As a parent myself, I know we all want the best for our children.
I knew there was an urgent change needed in the fashion industry and I wanted to be a voice for change on the biggest issue facing the planet. This included a holistic business model that would balance the planet, arts and commerce.
I began to build my local clothing brand on the notion of accessible designer collections, entirely produced in Sudbury, Ontario, through a small scale 360-degree infrastructure in the most transparent way possible.
I created and named the brand after my son, Eddie, and my daughter, Mira.
I want the Eddie Mira brand and the person wearing it to be known for the
comprehensive and highly responsible approach to fashion.
I take responsibility of the life-cycle of every garment. Every detail, from sourcing to the finishing on the hems, has been carefully chosen to create a harmonious whole, which feels classic but magnanimous. I am here to serve both women and children. I offer fittings in my boutique, consultations and alterations so that you will love your garments more and keep them longer.
As an artist, I am forever crafting, moulding and perfecting the creative process while continuously building the infrastructure to house it all. I am a strong believer in craftsmanship and quality over trend.
We can adopt lifestyle and business choices to reduce our own carbon footprint, meaningful change rarely happens without the force of individuals.
Education, sharing knowledge and expertise is at the base of my values as I hope to inspire more people to make more progressive choices that better our planet, local economy and our kids future.
