The Designer

Sara Duke is a Canadian independent fashion designer based in Toronto. Her pieces are thoughtfully designed and well constructed for the modern urban woman, signified by clean lines and a modern fit. For a decade, she has been designing and hand drafting patterns for the collection out of her Parkdale studio, always with an emphasis on carefree, easy wear.

Every Sara Duke piece is small batch, hand cut and proudly made in Canada, with a focus on utility; each tidy garment is constructed to last from locally sourced fabrics. Duke designs her collections with functionality, versatility and durability in mind, resulting in simple, stylish separates and dresses for an understated contemporary aesthetic.

Her commitment to quality means a hands on approach to design and construction. Duke drafts each pattern by hand and sews the sample garments for every collection. And, as a strong supporter of the local fashion community, Sara Duke garments are produced by a small manufacturer in downtown Toronto, and the collection is carried exclusively by independent retailers across Canada.
