Is it time for you to find a new suit, choose a dress for an upcoming gala, or simply refresh your spring wardrobe? On the blog this week we’re delighted to spotlight Freda’s Boutique, a shop in downtown Toronto that could accommodate any of these needs. Freda’s designs and manufactures exquisite ladieswear, including suits, evening dresses, and casual attire. In addition to their own unique collection, they also carry clothing lines from Europe and North America.
At Corporate Class Inc., Freda’s has been a reliable partner for several years. As we work with clients and help them choose styles, sizes, and colours that work for them, Freda’s unfailingly provides clothing choices for any personality, generation, or body type. Their apparel ranges from size 4 to 20, with different styles and cuts for a vast array of professional women. They also provide in-house alterations to achieve the perfect fit.
Anyone who shops at Freda’s can expect a personalized and attentive shopping experience. Freda’s is a family affair: Freda and her daughters not only draw upon their fashion expertise in the design of the clothing, they also are often found out on the sales floor working with clients and lending an expert eye. Alongside the family, Freda’s also employs a dedicated and knowledgeable team, who strive to deliver outstanding one-on-one service and ensure that clients find a complete wardrobe.
We had the pleasure of speaking with Freda and her daughter, Paulina, for this blog. When asked about their personal history and experience in fashion, Freda told of her lifelong pursuit of her passion:
“My love for fashion started as a young girl back home in Cyprus. When I arrived in Toronto it was [my] natural instinct to continue my love and passion for design and fashion. I started as a couturier making one-of-a-kind pieces for a few clients that soon grew into a retail and manufacturing establishment.”
In October 2013, Corporate Class Inc. and the Herrmann Group organized a Women’s Networking Event that took place at Freda’s Boutique. On the value of business networking events like these, Freda and Paulina noted:
“Networking is always crucial for any business. We are always looking for ways to introduce our boutique to women who have a need for our clothing. We don’t advertise as most of our marketing budget is spent dressing many on-air personalities including exclusive [designs] for Tracy Moore from Cityline, City TV, Susan Hay from Global Television and various other on-air anchors and hosts.”
For the networking event and for the many occasions when we have worked with clients to augment their wardrobes, we have relied on our strong partnership with Freda’s. On our collaboration, Freda commented:
“I had the pleasure of being introduced to Diane through a mutual friend back in 2007. […] We have a good partnership and work well together. Diane has a great fashion sense and is able to pull the right looks and pieces for someone. We offer the variety of styles and sizes that work for Diane’s clients. It’s a mutually beneficial working relationship.”
