 NEW THIS YEAR…

We are giving you the opportunity to shop for a cause at the One Woman Many Faces Gala, at our three exclusive pop-up shops, featuring two amazing designers and a spectacular array of jewelry & accessories!

Born and raised in India where lush vibrant colors, rich textile and hand embroidery are way of life, Malika developed an early interest in art & design. Her life in India helped her understand craftsmanship while her move to Canada has enriched her creative side; the blend of these two worlds enabled her to develop a signature style that exudes quality with modern elegance. In 2007 Malika moved to New York City to attend the prestigious Parsons School of Design where her work was presented at Lord & amp; Taylor’s 2008 line debut.  While at Parsons Malika had an opportunity to intern for design houses such as Khan Lucas, Ralph Lauren, Red Cat Group and John Varvatos.

Malika launched her collection in Summer of 2012 at Passione Boutique; the label’s philosophy lies in the appreciation of high style, quality of finish, and luxury of fabric.

Bano eeMee is derived from the visions of Creative Director Aleem Arif who founded the brand in early 2011. The brand is dedicated to two generations of women in Aleem’s family.  He recalls ‘my grandmother used to lovingly call my mother Bano and eeMee is what my mother called me….I decided to form Bano eeMee paying homage to both generations.

The issue of social consciousness is at the heart of Bano eeMee’s ethos. The brand promotes ethical realization of its designs with a focus on helping support the social fabric in communities ravaged by war, poverty and destitution through creating opportunities, paying fair wages and transferring knowledge.

Bano eeMee is recognized for its luxurious hand burnished genuine leather jackets, immaculately tailored blazers and structured ‘mixed media’ clothing.

If jewelry is your passion, you will have the opportunity to shop an exclusive Lia Sophia Collection as well in our third pop-up shop!  www.liasophia.ca
