Star Designer – Vickie

Fashion designer, Vickie Joseph, was gifted with unique visionary talent and creativity for distinctive style from a young age. With much experience in the fashion industry, including having worked for renown designers such as Ralph Lauren, Vickie founded !Nu.I by Vickie in 2006 and it has proven to be successful ever since.

Star Designer – Rachel Sin


Architect turned fashion designer, Rachel Sin, developed a passion for all things well designed in her studies, earning a Masters degree in architecture. She believes that if “God is in the details”, then let the folds of the fabric create these details.

Very meticulous in her designs, Rachel is able to translate her architectural skills onto fabric with grace, refinery, precision and quality. If architecture must always be functional, then fashion should always be wearable.

Rachel has previously showcased her work at Ottawa Fashion Week. Enjoy a few of my fave pieces of her 2012 Fall/Winter Collection above and see collection from Rachel Sin here.
