Voice of Canadian Fashion Opens Luxury Resale Destination in Toronto

Clementine’s opened its doors in early 2015 with Founder and Creative Director Christina McDowell, the voice of Canadian fashion, at the helm of the leading luxury resale concept. The expertly curated collections are coupled with Christina’s highly sought-after expertise for a high-end, one-of-a-kind client experience. Clementine’s specializes in creating unique, tailored experiences to its clients through its established luxury resale collection, including designer labels Celine, Lanvin, Balenciaga, and Prada, and offers customized image consulting services through both one-on-one, and small group seminars.

“Clementine’s is more than just a designer shop—we’re excited to launch a unique shopping experience, in line with a concept shop feel,” says Christina McDowell, Founder and Creative Director of Clementine’s. “Whether through luxury resale, as well as new collections, or image consulting and art installations, we work closely with our clients to customize their experience.”

The Business of Fashion

As an Image Consultant and former National Spokesperson at Holt Renfrew, Christina McDowell brings over 15 years of experience in the luxury fashion industry to Clementine’s. The shop focuses on luxury resale of like-new designer goods and image consulting for a full service fashion destination for busy women. The Clementine’s collection is expertly edited to provide high quality and authentic pieces, with labels such as Stella McCartney, Alexander Wang, and Rick Owens. An avid collector of art, Christina embellishes the Summerhill shop with rotating art installations from local and international artists, also available for sale.

Having worked with celebrities with the likes of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Aubrey Graham, and Aretha Franklin, CEOs, and politicians, Christina has revamped the image consulting concept, working with clients to evolve their image through ongoing one-on-one consultations. Christina comments, “our image speaks before we do and getting clients to use their image as a communication tool is only the beginning.”
