Who we are
Élange, derived from the french word mélange, meaning a mixture -a collective consciousness that values transparency, individuality, and social and environmental responsibility. Founded in the heart of Toronto with a global mindset, we are a collective of creatives who believe fashion, being the 2nd largest polluting industry in the world, only results in an opportunity for us to do better.
Curating the future
Fashion and art are avenues for self-expression and a direct image of how culture is evolving. What you wear isn’t just about your appearance--it is a language of communicating who you are, what you value, and how you see the world. Today, there is a lack of social and environmental responsibility in the industry. We aim to challenge the status quo by providing people with transparent, responsible and, design-forward choices content in one space. We hand curate unique fashion and art pieces from independent and upcoming designers who are committed to creating beautiful quality products with the planet and people in mind. Our collections include limited stock, one-of-a-kind pieces, and exclusive collaborations. Most items are shipped directly from our designers so you will receive real value without the high retail markups from traditional retail stores. By choosing us you will also be supporting designers, changemakers, and; people just like you, who care about the wellbeing of others and our environment.
Our mission is to provide you with the most responsible and unique pieces all in one space so that you can save time cultivating things that truly matter to you while contributing to a kinder future. Beyond selling goods, we aim to catalyze positive change through driving meaningful conversations surrounding conscious consumption and creation, in hopes to redefine our relationship with our clothes and what we own. By empowering people with the opportunity and knowledge to choose consciously, we are able to collectively contribute to a more sustainable future.
When we found out that fashion is the 2nd polluting industry in the world, we had to be a part of the solution. We believe in a world where you do not have to compromise your values for style forward design- allowing you to embrace your individuality and live your most authentic life. A world where ‘ethical fashion’ does not exist, simply fashion and goods with higher standards.
“We are working towards a day where there is no such thing as ethical fashion - just fashion with higher standards.
