ABOUT THE BLOGGER
My name is Tiffany Elton, I started focusing on Quartier Mode blog after closing my store front in Montreal. As a store owner I saw big changes in the industry and as a fashion designer I saw the ways I could better support local designers…. sharing their stories.
I grew up in St. John’s, Newfoundland and left as a teen to chase my dreams. I started out as a hairstylist over 15 years ago, then went on to study fashion design and fashion marketing and have worked for some of Canada’s largest clothing retailers. I came into my own producing locally for my own collections. After a long career in Montreal and a gig on the board of directors for Made in Montreal, I am living back in Newfoundland with the same passion to boost local at home. I believe in local. Not just fashion, local decor, local art, local beauty products, local food, local entrepreneurs: Supporting local businesses for sustainability, environmentally for reducing our carbon imprint, culturally for a strong artistic and creative community and because I am proud of all these people and I believe in big dreams.
I am all about home, happiness & cake! My day job is technical designer for Eclipse stores. I love travelling to new places, working on my mini lines dear dawcy and dawcy & Ella and singing for “the damned lovely”. I spend my free time exploring, hiking trails or lounging at the cabin and trying to be best aunt ever to a precocious three year old and a cat mom to Milly & Mazzy.
