It's time stylish men and women start recognizing and supporting Canadian designers and fashion labels. Canada has a lot to offer that is unique, yet we keep looking to our friendly neighbor to the south for all of our fashion needs. I'm not denying that there are GREAT American fashion designers, but maybe we should be proud of what we have in our own backyard. So instead of only looking to Coach and Michael Kors for your bags, here is another idea!
RUDSAK was started in 1994 in Montreal, by designer Evik Asatoorian, The line features mostly leather goods and clothing, specializing in handbags, coats, and shoes for men and women. RUDSAK has shown their collections at Toronto fashion week for many years and is one of my favorite shows for the fall.
RUDSAK has been described as high quality, timeless, and stylish. The spring/summer 2009 collection featured amazing trenches in various colours, and cute matching hats.
The bags and shoes are amazing quality and very unique. I have a beautiful leather bag (which is my favorite at the moment) and some super cute white leather flats!
