Our Story

 

Siblings Lorna & Colin teamed up 7 years ago to start the dream of Bonita Bold and are continuing to grow the company into the future. 

"We established our own design studio, not far from our flagship storefront, so that we can design and produce our women’s clothing line locally. Being close has also allowed us to close the gap between the design stage and availability in-store and to respond quickly to trends in customer requests.

We are excited to be working towards our goal of creating sustainably made clothing in Canada while at the same time creating jobs which draw more creative individuals into our beautiful community.  We are proud to support and grow the talent in our region, and to be at the forefront of the clothing industry in terms of a push for green, elegant wearability, and lowering overall carbon footprint."

sUSTAINABILITY

We are passionate about the planet our future generations will inherit and so we work hard to constantly improve our brand sustainability.

cOMMUNITY

We strongly believe in giving back and are so grateful to be able to partner with organizations that align with our company culture of empowering women.

qUALITY

We pride ourselves in creating and selling unique, bold, and high-quality pieces that will be your wardrobe staples for years to come.

Operating our own production and design studio, and being close to the end-consumer, means we can guarantee the sustainability and ethical practices of our clothing line. We use fabric made from recycled materials and sustainable fabrics like bamboo, and aim to only produce enough to meet demand which allows us to pursue our goal of leaving a light eco footprint.

At Bonita Bold, we are grateful to be able to support our community including organizations like Girls Inc. through events like our fashion shows and by participating in silent auctions held by a variety of local charities. Check our gallery to see past event photos. 

We make sure we truly love every piece that is presented to our customers. Our line and many of the brands we carry are designed and made in Canada. We love supporting Canadian designers and pride ourselves in knowing we can guarantee the quality of the clothes we sell.

We carry as many sizes as we can because style is not one size, and fashion is for everyone. We stock sizes 4-22, regular, plus and petite throughout our collections. Our highly trained fashion stylists love what they do and work with you to put together outfits that make you feel confident and beautiful.
