M ichele Taras is a proudly Made in Canada Woman’s wear designer who emphasizes comfort and originality. Her one-of-a-kind designs are the product of computer graphics and paintings, and are designed with the busy modern day woman in mind.
Michele Taras believes in the beauty of each individual. In her runways you would have already seen a model in a wheelchair, a plus size model, a model with Alopecia, a model walking with a cane, senior models and different races as well.
Her upcoming 2020 collection “Coast to Coast”, which will showcase for the first time at Vancouver Fashion Week on October 9th, 2019, will be all about Canada and will feature First Nations models as well as a song performed in English, French and Ojibwe by Mary Nahwegahbow. This year’s SS2019 collection “#BetterTogether” emphasizes the symbiotic nature of fashion design, and the coming together of people of all kinds.
“If you believe you are beautiful, the rest of the world will too.” - MICHELE TARAS
