Dusen Dusen

Ellen Van Dusen was born in Washington, DC and raised by architect parents in a vibrant, creative home. As a child, she sponge-painted her own clothes with her mom; as a teenager, she altered and re-dyed thrift store discoveries; in college, through a self-directed major at Tufts University, she studied the psychology of design and the brain's reaction to visual stimuli. After graduating, she founded Dusen Dusen, a line of universally flattering basics driven by the prints she creates from scratch each season. Her inspiration is drawn from far-flung and unexpected places, like mid-century resort architecture, Italian industrial design, Scandinavian textiles, Google maps and handwriting, but all of her production is done in the USA.

Minnowbathers

Toronto swimwear company, Minnow Bathers, draws inspiration from youth and romance, reflecting a keen interest in the nostalgia of youth, summer rebellion, and first loves. Minnow experiments with the juxtaposition of tradition and modernity, modesty and sexuality in their collections. They pair bold colours and vibrant patterned fabrics with classic designs to create pieces which exist as both vintage and contemporary in design. Minnow’s collections also demonstrate a love of craftmanship and the handmade; constructing each piece by hand.
Minnow Bathers is the vision of best friends Karen Donaldson and Vanessa Warrack.
