BRIDES of North America

Well, it finally happened. We have been trying to keep our lips sealed about this, but we can't keep it a secret any longer. 

One of our (and apparently your) favourite Canadian designers, Birds of North America, has launched a bridal capsule collection and we are the exclusive in-person retailer where you can actually come in and see the bridal collection in person, so it's pretty special!

Birds of North America Bridal 2015. Left to right: 'Glide' dress, 'Soar' dress.

This selection of five styles is drawn from the vintage inspired silhouettes that comprise Birds of North America’s seasonal collections. All of the dresses are fully lined and available in white or ivory, sizes 2-16. Every style, with the exception of ‘Flutter’ even has pockets! 

Left to right: 'Hover' dress, 'Flutter' dress. 
All the practicality, fit and craftsmanship you've come to expect from Birds of North America dresses are finally available in bridal fabrics. It's pretty much a slam-dunk! We are thrilled to be able to offer this to you. 

'Nest' dress. 

These babies are not going to be on the sales floor so please send us an email if you'd like to book an appointment to try on the collection. In the meantime, feast your eyes on these beautiful dresses over on our website to see more photos, measurements and pricing.

Entropy Jewelry

Check out this amazing new jewelry line we picked up all the way from New York! Entropy is designed by Haylie Johnston and hand produced in her New York studio. 

Lunar Phases necklace, $200 and Cosmic Particle necklace, $95

Haylie's pieces are about the mathematics of the universe. Drawing inspiration from geometric crystal formations, the mapping of space, and the phases of the moon, this line is sure to delight your inner astronomer (or astrologer).

Nebulae cuff in brass, $55 (also available in silver, $85) and Nebulae Charm necklace, $75
My personal favourite is the Oracle ring and necklace. Maybe I'll see the future if I stare into it long enough!
Silver Oracle ring, $80 and Oracle necklace, $85
These and more pieces are available at all 3 shops and online

2014, they can never clone ya!

We will definitely never forget the year that was 2014. Opening the Toronto shop was a dream come true. We love the 'hood and our new (and expat Ottawa!) customers - but the biggest joy is having the EXTRAORDINARY Kristina and Amber back in the Victoire crew. We also have gotten to welcome Nevine and Erin into the fold making Toronto's team a total dream team for the ages! Our space at 129 Ossington is full of love and creativity, the perfect combo for a killer shopping experience!
Launching and growing the webstore has been an exciting challenge to define and interpret what Victoire is all about without the online customer ever meeting us or stepping through the door! We are proud of our first steps and are so excited to do even better in 2015!
Our Ottawa shops have also had a wild ride of 2014! We have welcomed new co-workers Lina, Hannah and Jess; seen the goods shop within the West Wellington location blossom and headed for their own location on Dalhousie St (next to our new location there this March at 209 Dalhousie!); and welcomed so many new designers to our family! We have also gotten to witness the evolution of Emily, Ainslie and Shaya into kick-ass, inspiring, engaged GROWN Women! We could not be prouder and more #blessed to have them as co-workers.
But we are seriously beyond blessed, grateful, humbled and motivated by each of your continued support of our business. No one thought opening a business at 24 made sense, no one thought a BFF would make a wise business partner, no one thought selling Canadian design in an industry seemingly obsessed with "fast fashion" could work, but you guys have allowed us to prove all that wrong!

Thank you for prioritizing buying Canadian Design, and supporting our small business. We promise to make 2015 the best yet! 2015, we got plans for you..... Regine & Katie

Most Wonderful Time of Year = MARKDOWNS!

Well, we all made it through the holiday frenzy. There's still New Year's Eve to go, but I think we can agree that we made it over the hump and can stop stressing over all the gifts we need to get our loved ones, what to cook for that Xmas/Hanukkah dinner and just chill out. 

In the retail world, it also means that last season's clothing and shoes (Fall/Winter 2014) are now officially ON SALE. Ergo, Victoire is now SALE LAND and we are ready to wait on you (yes YOU) on hand and foot to help you find something special for yourself. And at pretty great prices. We really wanna see this season's pieces go to a good home! 

Here are a few great pieces that we have on sale right now. They're yours if you want 'em.

Hanna Dorothy Kristen dress, originally $165, now $124! Available online and at all 3 locations.

Birds of North America Thornbird dress, originally $206, now $156. Available online, at Dalhousie and at 129 Ossington.
Betina Lou Anouk jacket, originally $280, now $224. Available online, at Westboro and at 129 Ossington. One medium left, and one large left! 
These sweet garments are waiting for their forever homes! 

Hope you all had great holidays! We just want to thank you all for making the choice to shop with Victoire and shop local/shop Canadian this season! It's an important time in our business and for our designers, and it fills us with delight and gratitude that you guys make the time to follow us and come into the shop (in person and online). We really love ya! Thanks, from the bottom of our hearts.
