Canadian Fashion Designer Stevie Crowne designs his collections by reimagining, reinventing, and repurposing top quality vintage and thrift styles. Primarily focusing on sustainable practices, he creates 2+ collections per year since 2011 and upcycles his findings into newer, edgier and bespoke contemporary fashion garments. Each Spring-Summer & Fall-Winter, he establishes a fresh take on excess vintage clothing by refurbishing the original idea into a stellar 360 degree concept.
Custom work is a primary service which Stevie Crowne offers. The process of each piece starts off with tailoring to suit each client. Next, the garment goes through a complete 180° transformation using methods such as fabric dying, hardware embellishment, embroidery, painting, patchwork, embossing, sometimes as well collaborating with visual artists to produce limited edition prints and bespoke creations.
Private personalization on set budgets is a main priority because he believes that sustainability, inclusivity, and accessibility should never be left out of the same sentence. During the draft concept phase, clients are encouraged to come forward with their own concepts and specifications if they wish to do so.
T shirts, beanies, hats, masks, handbags, hoodies, jackets, dresses, suits, bodysuits, jumpsuits, and pants have been created throughout his career. The options are limitless! The main goal here is to reduce, reuse, and recycle as many garments as we can in order to restyle the excess that the mainstream and fast fashion industry has left behind.
From streetwear to high street to runway to performance-wear to upscale garments, Stevie has you covered on all bases!
He most recently showcased his latest line, “ENERGY NEVER DIES” at Fashion Art Toronto on April 26th 2019 which proved to be the brightest, experimental, and daring vision to date from the brand. He has also made top ten sustainable designers in Canada two years in a row, thanks to Fashion Takes Action, Canada’s sustainable fashion authority + competition.
The brand has shipped internationally to USA, Europe, Asia, and Australia to name and remains to be a crowd pleaser in Toronto, Vancouver, and his home province, Saskatchewan. Along his travels across Canada since he was a teenager, he has produced and showcased dozens of fashion shows for his collections nationally.
In 2019, he exclusively sells through private appointment as well as private consults over instagram and email.
