Centurion Boutique started with Nicole's curiosity about the fashion industry in late 2020. In the midst of the ongoing pandemic, Nicole reflected on her purchasing habits and began to prioritize shopping at local businesses. She noticed that the majority of her clothes were made overseas, which led her to research Canada's fashion industry, consuming articles, blogs, and journals about slow fashion and sustainable business practices.
In early 2021, Nicole enrolled in a course to learn about launching a small business, from marketing strategies to building an online shop.
With the support of her family, and mentorship of her business coach, Nicole began to connect with independent Canadian designers and build her shop.
A nod to her dad, Nicole is proud to share Centurion Boutique, a curated collection of clothing thoughtfully designed and ethically made by Canadians who are inspired by the brave women of this century, like you.
