Simone’s Rose

Simone’s Rose

Eco-conscious, romantic and chic – Simone’s Rose was born out of designer Michelle Maynard’s passion for her own brand of fashion and style with a conscience.

The label uses organic and fair trade fabrics, quality vintage textiles & trims, as well as dead stock or large company overstocks to keep within the company’s mandate.

The use of organic, sustainable and vintage textiles lends itself well to the designer’s aesthetic for clean and somewhat minimalist design – letting the fabrics create a presence of their own.  Combined with great attention to construction and detail, the quality of each garment is evident in the label’s collections. 

Simone’s Rose is currently based in Toronto, Ontario (Canada) and run by designer Michelle Maynard. All the items in this shop are currently made in Toronto, Ontario Canada.  Most are made by hand. Named after Michelle’s grandmother – Simone’s Rose represents the strength of Simone’s spirit and her tenacity to get up in the morning when life was difficult to handle.  Her strong spirit and kind heart will always be a true inspiration to Michelle.
