Dotty began with a simple solution to what I saw as shortcomings within the
fashion industry — clothing that hides my “baby belly” and my “wine belly,” but that also respects my busy schedule, by being machine washable.
I design for real women living real lives, who need real clothing for their every day.
I source comfortable, colourful fabrics, that are low maintenance, and sew them in a way that is figure flattering to all shapes and sizes.
Dotty is run by women for women. I'm a woman...the owner of my Toronto-based factory, and all of her sewers are women.
While the future is female, so is right now ladies.
After graduating from The Academy of Design in Toronto, Canada, I began my career in fashion wholesale as a sales representative for New York designer Ellen Tracy. I went on to launch my own fashion wholesale agency, representing numerous women's wear collections from Europe, Canada, and the U.S.
I am a mom of three, lover of vintage muscle cars,
ruffles, pearls, tattoos, laughing, and red wine.
