First, I sincerely hope that you and your close ones are doing OK despite the circumstances. Our small – but united – fashion community is coping as best as it can (these are obviously challenging times). If you are able to do so, continue to support your favourite boutiques by visiting their websites. Most of them offer free shipping countrywide. I am also still processing online orders, making sure to take all necessary precautions. I offer free shipping across Canada as well.
Take care of yourselves! Stay strong and positive!

Valérie Dumaine will turn 10 this fall. For the occasion, we prepared a special collection inspired by a decade of uncompromising fashion, creations, and confections.
This fall-winter 2013-2014 collection was unveiled in Montreal and in Toronto last March. The events showcased the art of experimental filmmaker Karl Lemieux and the work of photographer Sylvain Blais.
