Let's Celebrate! 10 Years of Local & Sustainable Fashion mars 5, 2021 14:37




A Beautiful reason to celebrate!

 

Dear supporters & ethical fashion enthusiast,
 
 

Yes! It has already been 10 years since I launched Meemoza, with the dream to create designs with a lower impact on the environment, by collaborating with the community of skilled garment workers that Quebec is so lucky to have! Since 2011, my mission has been to be accessible to a community of women, looking for value behind the clothes they wear.


It is, therefore, with much pride, that I present you our  New 10th Anniversary Collection – in Limited Edition!


Get your hands on these Limited Quantities before everyone else.



Thanks for your support, with kicking off the production!


It makes all the difference for us.



Emilie Rioux Ethical Designer & Founder

Our inspiration this season:

 



Our New Spring Essentials are perfect for everyday life! With our unique and playful prints on Oh so soft! Organic Cotton Knits as well as our Natural & Refined Materials, including Linen and Fine Laces.

As always with the plus of being locally Made in Canada.


For this collection, our designer’s inspiration comes from the need that she feels around her for a return to the essentials. Our values of durability, comfort and a playful lifestyle go hand in hand with the current times. Our team has been practicing self-care these past few months, by spending a lot of time enjoying nature and the great outdoors. This collection is inspired by this return to the roots, with a touch of positivity, spontaneity and inclusion.

Helping our Community with Mtl's Le Chaînon Foundation!

 

 

 

#challengeaccepted Did you know that the meaning of this hashtag and these black and white photos currently published is to give visibility to the Istanbul Convention, which aims to put an end to the forgiveness of acts of violence against women?

Many of us are victims of different kinds of violence. The abuse can make it difficult to see the solutions, and to understand that the key is in the numbers and the collaboration between us. Let us lift each other up!

To help our community, I decided to donate pieces from our past collections to the local foundation @lechainon_mtl :)
Share your own B&W photos to support this movement. We need the world to hear us!

 

What about you, are you doing something to help your community and your loved ones?

The multiple inspirations behind the collection

Delicate and elegant, the new Spring-Summer collection is truly a breath of fresh air! Inspired by the vast open spaces of the country and by the soft lights of spring, it reflects our passion for nature and simple pleasures.

Through its pastel tones and the softness of its fabrics, this collection borrows from our sweetest childhood memories. Bike rides, races through the fields or the soft summer breeze are all simply delightful moments that inspired our new pieces.

Where to celebrate Valentine’s Day? 3 Montreal restaurants to discover! janvier 30, 2015 16:08 20 Commentaires

February’s on its way, and some of you may already be planning Valentine's Day...

Whether you are single or in a couple, February 14th, is the opportunity to experiment! Following this idea, here is a short selection of resto-bars with different atmospheres and specialties...


For a chic and romantic dinner, Le Serpent

Located in the heart of La Fonderie Darling, Le Serpent has quickly become a very popular Montreal restaurant. Very contemporary, it offers a revisited Italian cooking at affordable prices even if slightly above average. With its dinner menu, adjustable to every wish, and its extensive wine list, Le Serpent ensures you a delightful evening!

Price: between $ 16 and $ 29 for a main course

For an easy going and warm rendez-vous, Le Manitoba

Located in the Mile-ex, Le Manitoba is very likely to win your heart... Between local delicacies and products from indigenous cultures, the choice is as original as wide. Seasonal vegetables, meats, seafood, fish, natural wines, beers and cocktails… There are plenty of wonders at Le Manitoba!

Price: between $ 17 and $ 28 for a main course

For a girls night out, Le Thazard

Lovers of Le café Sardine/Iwashi will be happy to find Chef Hachiro Fujise’s offerings at the surprising Thazard! Located on the Saint Laurent Boulevard, this restaurant borrows the French pace of little bistros... The similarities end here, while what is proposed is nothing like a “steak-frites”! Cocktails, menchikatsus croquettes, miso poutine and the even more amazing... octopus hot dog! You may live a very unique culinary experience here!

Price: À la carte formula, between $ 7 and $ 14

The mariniere, its classic and timeless appeal! décembre 25, 2014 12:47

 

The mariniere is without a doubt a key piece to have in your wardrobe. Comes summer or winter, it always as its place! This classic piece was originally tailored for sailors. Coco Chanel largely contributed to popularizing this garment, with the creation of her short mariniere. But its skyrocketing rise to fame happened on the big screen, with Jean Seberg in the movie À bout de souffle by Jean-Luc Godard. After now many years, its popularity never faded, and it has become a must have!

Timeless, practical and elegant, it is easy to transpose this piece in different day to day scenes of our lives. Whether worn with a jean or a high waisted skirt, this versatile piece navigates easily between our favorite outfits. Imagine the endless possibilities, when investing in a well tailored mariniere!
