About Baby Steinberg:
Using salvaged materials to craft iconic designs, Baby Steinberg’s work has an underlying message: “What we throw away is not always garbage.” With every piece, Steinberg sets out to craft unique and dramatic designs from a wide range of reprocessed materials and fabrics such as plastic bags, coffee filters and surgical masks. Steinberg’s magnetic personality has helped her build a wide network of scavengers who share her passion for collecting and recycling materials for her collections.
As a Toronto-based, Brazilian-born designer, Baby Steinberg’s glamorous and eclectic design aesthetic brings a vibrant energy to her couture collections. Inspired by Brazilian culture and her volunteer work with children in the favelas of southern Brazil, Baby believes strongly in the beauty that comes from creating something out of nothing.
About Clarice Michelon:
Clarice Michelon was born in Rio Grande do Sul, in the south of Brazil. She started her studies in fashion in Sao Paulo and soon after graduated in fine arts. After several years working as a designer for companies such as Levi’s, Clarice Michelon decided to challenge herself and moved to Canada. Her career as a fashion designer was put on hold for some time while she mastered and improved her understanding of the North America fashion market and its consumers.
Clarice is always looking for the best creative way to put things together, for balance, harmony, beauty. As a Brazilian woman, she does not accept the things the way they are, she works to make it happen.
"Brazilian women are sexy, strong, independent," Clarice says. "And they do not care about being trendy, they care about looking good, fashionable, polished."
And it’s all reflected in her collection, style and idea of fashion.
