The Ladies of Workshop & Flock

I will go old school and say Loot by Stina
but now it is the workshop brand
Love love love
I love Jennifer Glasgow….clean lines, nice fitting and gorgeous fabrics. But I also love Mandala designs. Thanks, Flock, for introducing many of us to the wonderful world of Canadian designers!
I absolutely adore Annie 50. Her dresses, fabrics, and cuts just feel SPECIAL. I wish I could own them all!!
Just bought a blouse and a vest from Mellow. Her designs are amazing! But my favorite of them all is Annie50! Creativity and vintage at its best!
My long-standing favourite is Jennifer Glasgow, a fellow Montrealer to boot! Elegant, flattering, timeless. But my new favourite designer would have to be Eve Lavoie. Colourful and a bit quirky with very flattering cuts!
I love that Workshop/Flock showcase Canadian designers. I have many favourites, but the top picks are Mandela, Mellow, Lousje & Bean, Jennifer Glasgow and I could go on! Each time I go to the store I always find somethin incredible!
I love a lot of Montreal designers, Jennifer Glasgow, Betina Lou, Atelier B to name a few but all the designers Flock and Workshop are extremely talented! Thanks for showcasing the amazing work the people in the industry imagine and create on a daily basis.
Mandala and I have been in love for a while now. I try not to enter Flock because I know that if I do I will walk out with a new dress. When I see one on the rack, it is usually Mandala. Shirts too. I went to a conference recently and realized that almost all of the clothes in my bag where from Flock. Yes, it is an enduring love.
Mandala is my favourite! Her designs are stylish, sexy and comfortable, catering to any body type. The fabric designs that she chooses are fantastic. I love the retro feel, and flattering cuts of her clothes. I always look forward to her next line. Hands down, #1!
My favorite Canadian designer would have to be Simon Chang. I love how he adds punches of color to a soft, classic look, and gets inspired from street art/exhibits. His clothing is made to last, high quality and fun to wear.
Jennifer Glasgow! Her dresses in particular are office-friendly but fashionable, high quality and very flattering. I remember the first time I tried on one of her dresses (at Flock!) and I fell in love!
Obviously, my favourite Canadian designer is Mandy Armstrong for Mandala Design! Her pieces are flattering for many body types, they are made in Canada, and they have an all-around feminine flair that can’t be matched by anything at the mall. I’m saving my pennies for a Leigh dress in 2016 (that is, if it isn’t already sold out by then, lol). I sing the line’s praises all the time, and I love having the opportunity to talk about its awesomeness once again! XD
One of my favourite designs is Mandala Designs, fun, chic, comfortable, dress-up or dress down dresses, and my favourite feature, with pockets!! And the store and studio is VERY local, around the corner from me!!
100 % Melow. I told her once, her work change my life. Clothes for plus size that fits well and feel confortable. I always love the material she chooses.
I enjoy Miik designs. They are sustainable.
Oh it has to be cokluch from Montreal. So comfy and edgy.
Love Jennifer Glasgow!!! Have a little black dress of hers for years now and its still perfect.
I love Jennifer Glasgow and fell for her designs when I discovered her at Flock. I have trouble finding clothing that fits and was so happy to discover a line that I can wear! I usually get tired of clothing really fast, but her designs are so unique and I get so many compliments when I wear a piece they are a permanent fixture in my wardrobe. I’m always excited to check out her new pieces and make regular visits to Flock so I don’t miss out on my size when a new design comes in. Congrats on 10 years, thank you for providing such a wonderful place to shop!
I have a crush on everything Jennifer Glasgow makes. I love the cut of her dresses and the fit is so perfect, it’s like she knows my body and curves perfectly! Her fabrics are beautifully matched, soft, comfortable to wear and different colour and patterns pair perfectly enough to be a little edgy and surprisingly fitting. Best of all, whenever I wear any of her beautiful creations, I get noticed and complimented. Most of her pieces can be dressed up for evening outings and look great at work too. I love that she works in my hometown (Montreal), love that she uses local fabrics and talent to make her clothing. Jennifer is a great female creative mind and I love supporting her and Workshop/Flock. Thanks for supporting local, Ladies! x
