From the National Post article… “Ms. Bernhardson opened her first designer collective on Queen Street in 2003 with eight designers. “Initially I held on to the idea that it was 14 designers working one day a week, “they could build up their own clientele too.”

The latest location opened in April, after Ms. Bernhardson combined a government loan with money from remortgaging her house.”
