Allison Wonderland designer Allison Smith realizes that a woman’s life is not all about evening gowns, she designs clothes for everyday life of working, running around town and getting things done. Designer and dreamer by day, Allison creates clothes that she and her friends want to wear, often inspired by references form her favourite decade – the 70s! Eating and drinking is a very important part of Allison life. So it comes as no surprise that her designs can be summed up by how much food and drink a girl can consume while still looking great! After all, women should be able to look great while popping open a bottle of bubbles and breaking bread with family and friends.

After graduating from the Fashion Design & Technology program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Allison paid her dues in Montreal’s rag trade before starting her own line, Allison Wonderland, in 1998. The line grew in popularity across North America, prompting the addition of an eco-friendly sister line, Pillar, in 2011. Both lines are manufactured in Vancouver.

A BC girl at heart, Allison loves summertime patio parties, lying in the grass, evening swims at Kits pool and snowshoeing at Cypress. When she’s not too lazy, she gets around the city by bike rain or shine.

 

Pillar by Allison Wonderland Made in Vancouver, is design Allison Smith’s eco-fashion line using natural and organic fabrics. Now on the Quartier Mode web store!!
