I absolutely love the sophisticated and flirty designs by Carissa McCaig, the Canadian fashion designer behind Copious. Carissa makes all of her designs in Toronto, ordering all of her fabric from Montreal as she likes the made in Canada mentality. Growing up just outside of Ottawa, she draws inspiration from colors, Marie Antoinette- for her fall collection she drew inspiration from the 70s using knit and plaid fabrics. Both a designer and entrepreneur, she spends 25% of her time on business and 75% on designing and making each piece. You can find her designs on her website as well as throughout boutiques in Canada.
I’m also doing a giveaway of the Kaja dress by Copious (the design I’m wearing in the above pictures). The Kaja dress is also available in fall colors from Carissa’s fall collection; you can pick which colour you want if you win! Enter to win the Kaja dress!
