Women's Fashion from Nadya Toto

Canadian Designer Nadya Toto: 32 Years of Modern-Retro Fusion

Nadya Toto is a Canadian womenswear brand, launched by designer Nadya Toto in 1989. With a focus on fashion-forward, feminine designs made in ultra-comfortable stretch fabrics, and features in Vogue Italia, Madame Figaro and Elle among others, 32 years of dressing women has cemented the brand as a pillar in Canadian Fashion.

This Fall-Winter 20-21 season, the pieces are romantic and vibrant, with retro touches like bell-bottom pants and gigot sleeves.

We are an independent woman-run brand based in Montreal that values the locally-made, slow-fashion ethos. Our pieces are all designed, sampled and produced in Montreal, either in-house or in collaboration with small-scale contractors, from imported European fabrics. For FW 20-21, we pushed this ethos by collaborating with a local fabric mill to create some of our signature stretch jacquard knits. Our jacquards (fabrics that have a motif knitted into the fabric using coloured yarns) are soft and stretchy, with colourful motifs and compelling surface textures.

Canadian Designer Nadya Toto: 32 Years of Modern-Retro Fusion

The retro sensibility was fostered by our designer’s 1970s Italo-centric upbringing. She grew up in a household, alongside her Italian couturière grandmother, that valued the hand-created; wearing exclusively hand-made clothing and living in a house decorated top-to-bottom with handmade family artefacts. This season, the retro artisan vibe is especially brought out by use of embroidered trims and rich hand-woven wools created by French artisans.
