Blending trends and timelessness, Eileen Fisher is a designer known for creating fashion without an expiration date. She is excited about bringing the company’s design values to Calgary. Fisher started her company in 1984, with a design philosophy rooted in simplicity and ease. She has been deeply inspired by Japanese design and by fabrics from around the world, particularly those that are artisanally made.
“There are several reasons EILEEN FISHER chose to expand to Calgary,” explains Catherine Claman, founder and President of Se Ce Apparel Co. Ltd., Canadian distributor of the brand. “We were struck by the focus on quality of life in Calgary and see a synergy between the ease, functionality and simple elegance of Eileen Fisher’s clothes and the relaxed Calgarian lifestyle. The brand has been so well received in Vancouver, and Calgary is a great next step in our Canadian retail expansion plan!”
“We’re very excited to deepen our relationship with the Canadian customer by opening our second EILEEN FISHER store in Calgary with our partners, Se Ce Apparel Co. Ltd.,” says Karen Gray, EILEEN FISHER’s Director of Retail and Global Development. “Known for its natural beauty and quality of life Calgary provides a wonderful lifestyle for residents and it is a destination for tourists. We are looking forward to joining and contributing to this vibrant community."
