FROM HOBBY TO PROFESSIONAL
A conversation with the Creative Director/Founder
Back when I was a kid, I remember my mother would dress me up in different outfits. I was obsessed with the idea of having my own wardrobe. I remember having different fashion magazines at the house. I would look through them and try to find the same outfit for myself online. Coming to Canada from Shanghai at a very young age has definitely changed my perspective on how fashion works. The boldness of the western culture inspired me to do something that is completely different. Canvas isn’t about being a big statement, I believe in today’s society people deserve to enjoy and cherish more arts. Every print has its own story, it is a journey, a passion and being authentic. Whether it’s on a silk scarf or as little as a tie, dressing up in something that has culture to it can definitely bring people happiness. Therefore, Canvas Toronto is a mixture of passionate arts and luxury material.
