2017 Highlights

In a flash,

Goodbye 2017. Hello 2018!!

This year happened in a wave of moments to be cherished.
Highlights that made our heart soar.
Inspirations that drove us to dig deep within ourselves.
An endless thirst to create.
Questions we want more answers to, 
and conversations started, to be continued.  

This year was a year of growth, a year of finding more of what we want and crave. We're so proud of the things we've accomplished, but we cannot wait to embrace this next chapter of 2018. 

With 365 new days to make a difference in the world, we hope that we can continue to deliver the what we always strive to be known for:

Luxury craftsmanship and quality, while always making the world a better place!


We hit the runway for the first time at the Edmonton PARKSHOW in February, alongside one of our favourite local brands, Mada the Label.

And again in May alongside, Lac Ann at the Calgary PARKSHOW.

Then June was a jam packed month with our very first Custom Bag Event hosted inside our favourite bakery, La Boule. It was a wonderful intimate evening with some amazing individuals in our city! I chatted about the road that led me to start DUVAL (more about that one this blog post), followed by a demonstration of how I make my bags. All in all a beautiful evening with amazing people, thanks to the help of Publicity Room!

We got featured on TV a number of times and CTV came into our studio to chat more with us!!

We were also shocked and beyond grateful and humbled to be voted Edmonton's 'Best Fashion Designer' by Vue Weekly! 

Plus a fun editorial featuring our new Blush Meraki Cross Body and the Royal Blue Dria in the December Edmonton Avenue Magazine styled by one of our favourite stylists, Kara Chomistek (president of PARK).

What an amazing and full year 2017 was, but we cannot wait to continue growing and sharing so much more with you. We hope to inspire you through fashion and the way we choose to run our business by always making the world a better place in any way we can!
