This month we welcome local fashion designer and fibreshed hero Peggy Sue Deaven Smiltnieks, creative director of The Peggy Sue Collection. After winning the Toronto Fashion Incubator in 2016, Peggy Sue has been growing her brand while still remaining true to her core values: that fashion should be connected, conscious and regenerative. The collection is fully traceable, designed to accentuate the best of the North American Fiber Industry and built to sustain lifetimes of wear.
