Designer Fashion & Home Decor

Atelier is an online marketplace for women’s fashion accessories and items for the home. Atelier is the French word for workshop or studio, the place where artistic talents are learned and developed with time and focus. Our Canadian designers have mastered traditional techniques, understand how to work with raw materials and are dedicated to sustainable fashion.

Only after years of taking courses, perfecting techniques, and working with creative masters is an artist ready to fabricate goods suitable for a discerning retail buyer. Our goal is to complement a designer’s marketing efforts by offering a curated niche collection of high-quality, limited production clothing, handbags, jewellery and gifts for the home.
