Canadian Fashion Designer Stevie Crowne, 23, designs his collections recycling top quality vintage and thrift styles. Deemed an Eco-Friendly label creating 2+ collections per year since 2011, he upcycles his findings into newer and more edgy-contemporary fashion garments. In this process, he breathes new air into vintage clothing by refurbishing the original idea into a new piece.
The beginning process with each piece typically starts off by basic pattern grading to suit in trend styles and 2018/2019 silhouettes. Further in the process each garment goes through a complete 180° transformation using methods such as fabric dying, hardware embellishment, tailoring, fabric-detailing, patchwork, embossing alongside a plethora of alterations, as well as collaborating with visual artists to produce limited edition prints and one-off bespoke creations.
He most recently showcased his latest line, “Underground Monarch” at Fashion Art Toronto on April 18th 2018 which proved to be the most refined, conceptual, and clearcut vision to date from the brand. 2017 marked the most shows done in one year in Toronto, where he did 7, including his first international benchmark at Perth Eco Fashion Week.
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.
He has shipped internationally to countries USA, UK, Northern Ireland, Japan, China, and Australia to name a few and remains to be a crowd pleaser in Toronto, Vancouver, and his home province, Saskatchewan. He has participated in dozens of pop-ups all over Canada and has sold multiple limited edition capsule collections in collaboration with over a dozen stockists. Black Market Vintage, 69 Vintage, Offsite Concept Space, E.L Ruddy, and Full Of Beans coffee house in Toronto were a few as well as Joanna Keller’s Beautique in Vancouver, The Closet YVR, and Alchemy Clothing in Saskatoon. In 2018, he exclusively sells through private appointment as well as private consults over instagram/email.
