About Andy Hall

Natalie Good, a Toronto native founded Andy Hall in the summer of 2009. The name Andy Hall was inspired by Andy Warhol, and the female lead in Woody Allen's "Annie Hall". Good states, "I always looked to the runways for inspiration, but wanted to create a line that would work with my lifestyle, which is significantly less glamorous!" Andy Hall combines cutting-edge details of high fashion with soft fabrics and a casual fit. www.andyhall.ca.

About Taessa Chorny

Launched in 2009, Taessa Chorny debuted at Toronto's Alternative Fashion Week with a collection emerging from her love of vintage design and a sexy and modern approach.
