Lennard Taylor Design Studio
We believe fashion should last more than just a season. Universally flattering fashion that is easy to wear. Lennard turns textile waste into sculpture and art - taking things that were bound for the landfill and making them thoughtful pieces of culture. All of our clothing is made in-house in Winnipeg, Canada — in an ethical and affirming work environment. We use exceptional quality fabrics and techniques for pieces that truly last, use every last scrap, repair and reuse.
