My Favourite Canadian Fashion Designer

I can easily say that my favorite Canadian fashion designer is Monica Mei. Her diligence with her work in becoming a fashion entrepreneur is truly an inspiration. Aime, the luxury clothing line that Monica began when she graduated from university, is a very creatively unique line that has captured my attention. It was through discovering Aime, that Monica Mei became my favorite Canadian fashion designer. The name Aime comes from the French word for love (Aime, 2010). Learning the meaning and the origin of the name Aime inspired me to be more creative just as Monica has been creative with her clothing line name. When I first perceived the definition, it so excited me because, approximately two years ago in the midst of studying theology, I realized that what I also wanted to study in the future was fashion - design. During that time in my life I felt very, very loved by my family and friends but especially by my father. Feeling so very overwhelmed by such love inspired me to want to name my first clothing line ‘Loved’. My dream is to one day be able to see people feeling loved as they wear my clothing, just as I have experienced love.

Monica’s philosophy of Aime is to love yourself, love others, and love luxury (Aime, 2010). I think it is so important to believe in these three things in the order that they are written. I have learned that before you can love anything else, you must primarily love yourself. I believe this to be true because, in my experience, I have realized that by loving someone else and not loving myself it is as though I am lying to that someone else because I do not love what they love. When we embrace the very unique individuals that we are, we do not only honestly love others but we can also love what we wear each day. It is noticed in our culture that confident people love to dress luxuriously. This is why I can so effortlessly say that it truly delights me that Monica’s philosophy is to love
