We are a duo of experienced Canadian fashion designers looking for new and exciting challenges abroad.

Having worn all the hats within our own company, (design, realization, production, distribution, sales, marketing...) we now wish to focus on what we are best at: design.

After winning


the grand prize in a TV fashion competition in 2010, we founded Atelier UNTTLD (untitled): a line of women’s luxury ready-to-wear that manifests power, glamour and elegance. Made in Italy, the collection is now distributed in the United States, Europe and Canada (Neiman Marcus, Saks 5th Avenue, 55 Croisette, etc.)

A graduate of LaSalle College’s Fashion Design program, Simon earned a Master’s degree at the Domus Academy of Milan.

Bachelor of Fine Arts, (Fibres major, Art History minor)
Concordia University Aug. 15, 2008 - May. 31, 2009
Montreal, Canada

A rigorous and comprehensive study of the technical, conceptual and creative aspects of current fibres practices. Students draw on diverse cultural or social research and a rich history of textile traditions to produce critically engaged artworks that use interdisciplinary, social, relational and per


formance elements.
Classes are small to promote personal expression and critical discussion and the open studio format supports the development of each student’s body of work. I was introduced to a broad range of fibres structure processes and printing and dyeing techniques including:

-hand construction
-loom and off loom woven structures
-silk screen printing
-discharge and resist dyeing
-embroidery and embellishment
