Let's Celebrate! 10 Years of Local & Sustainable Fashion mars 5, 2021 14:37
A Beautiful reason to celebrate!
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.

#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!
What about you, are you doing something to help your community and your loved ones?
Nouvelle Collection Fruitée : Tout Confort & Inspirée de la Nature mai 21, 2017 17:06
Le 3 mai dernier, marquait le lancement de notre Nouvelle Collection Printemps Été 2017. L’événement a pris place à la boutique Boutique Petite Rebelle de la rue Saint-Hubert à Montréal. Est-ce que vous y étiez ? Sinon, on vous raconte tout !
Parmi les surprises et rafraîchissements se trouvaient bien sûr tous les nouveaux modèles de la collection, que nous avions bien hâte de dévoiler ! On pouvait y découvrir nos matières naturelles et locales, aux couleurs rafraîchissantes et aux imprimés inspirés de la nature. L’ensemble des matières, finement choisies, créent un merveilleux agencement, qui se démarque joliment. Sans compter la présence de tricots locaux, aussi doux qu’éthiques!
Au cours de la soirée, plaisir et respect de la nature étaient au rendez-vous. D’ailleurs, pour l’occasion BKIND, ligne de cosmétique vegan et montréalaise (qu’on ADORE !), s’est joint à nous.
On y comptait aussi la présence de Josiane Stratis, Catherine Éthier et Marie-Claude St-Laurent, qui incarnent parfaitement le caractère authentique et féminin de notre ligne. On adore leur style chic et spontané, qui colle tellement avec Meemoza !
Avez-vous jeté un coup d’œil à la nouvelle collection ? Quel est votre coup de cœur ? :)

An Ode to Fall's colours! - Inspiration Look octobre 9, 2015 11:35
As you may have already noticed, our streets have started dressing up in beautiful colours! The weather, on the other hand, has remained clement :)
Isn't it the perfect moment to take out your colourful tights and beautiful fall accessories? On this occasion we want to share our latest look with you, starring beautiful prints and comforting colours.
For this new Inspiration Look, we chose our very feminine Kate Blouse, made with organic cotton, and one of the most heartwarming prints! Heartwarming, is an adjective which can also be used to describe the warm burgundy shade of this blouse. This colour combination makes the piece one of the must-have items from our new collection.
As mentioned at the beginning of this article, it's now or never the time to start wearing your favorite shorts on a lovely pair of tights! For those of you who have fallen for the shimmering Caramel colour of Emilie's tights, take a look at our online shop! The Stacy top and the Harlow skirt are available in this brightly warm shade :)
Finally, let's talk accessories! The look is completed by our cute Modal Headband, soft as silk. This ivory coloured headband provides the softness and warmness of our locally made Modal knit. It goes perfectly with the unique, and locally made earrings, created by the designer Miss Cocotte, who works with metal and leather.
So, what do you think? :) Do you like this look? Stay tuned for more ideas and combinations this season! Sign up to receive our newsletter at the bottom of this page.
A refined floral look for a sunny back to school ! septembre 4, 2015 17:18
Back to school is here! With the nice weather we have been enjoying, it's the perfect timing for a romantic look :) This week we have prepared a combination that stars the cute Harlow Skirt from our New Fall Collection! With its unique floral print, is the perfect piece to keep wearing florals into Fall!
This full and comfy circular skirt provides a comfortable ease of movement with its local Modal knit, soft as silk! Perfect to seize every moment!
Mix our Harlow Skirt with an elegant top and a leather ankle boot, for a refined effect. The look would not be complete without a structured felt hat, which gives an unexpectedly dressed up touch to this romantic outfit.

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!
How can you recreate a mariniere inspired outfit? What do you think about this combination, showcasing our Oh so soft! Caleta Sweater and Louie Skirt? Both made of Modal knit.
