Designer Shelley Klassen has built her career by creating an irresistible feminine style of chic women’s clothing. Launching her first label in 1999, Klassen is a graduate of Richard Robinson Academy of Design in Ottawa, a school which taught Klassen the elegance of haute couture and the intricacies of pattern making.
Klassen is currently in her 15th year as designer for Blushing Designs and her eponymous label, Shelley Klassen. Now with a more youthful label, ‘Story of a Girl’, Klassen offers a wide range of beautiful, wearable designs.
When it comes to design, Klassen’s method is unique: Fabrics come first because their color, pattern, and texture dictate how the design will unfold; each finished work of art is fresh, dazzling, and perfectly detailed.
Klassen’s labels are available in select boutiques across Canada and in her flagship store ‘Blushing Boutique’ located in downtown Vancouver.
