I first met Claudia and Heidi in my first store on Ossington Avenue in Toronto, and they were instant favorites. They were both on mat leave and walking around with their new babies, so chill, and so cool. We bonded immediately. When I moved my store from Ossington, these two ladies were the ones I missed most—they truly brightened each day when they came by.
Both are successful writers and creators, and have launched the stunning line Horses Atelier, which is made for every woman I know. Seriously. They have you covered. Well done, my friends. xo
