Spotlight on Favourite Designer Simon Chang

No designer does funky, chic couture quite like Simon Chang. I’m not exaggerating when I say that his fashions have a cult following here at Anne’s on the Avenue. Each season we anxiously await the arrival of his newest fashions. If you haven’t experienced the Simon Chang look yet, don’t wait any longer. His fresh, sassy attire is an absolute delight to wear!

Simon has made Montreal the home of his fashion empire. Surprisingly, he has remained a one-man designing dynamo. His love for unique details is apparent from the moment he begins to sketch a new piece. Where does he get his inspiration for such delicious designs? It comes from his frequent travels around the world in search of fabrics and ideas.  He’s also a pop culture fanatic. You might notice some elements in his designs inspired by futuristic characters and their costumes from the big screen.

Irresistible Spring Dresses by Simon Chang

Simon Chang is always hot, hot, hot. And he just keeps getting better! If you love couture attire with a sassy, chic edge, you won’t be able to resist his fashions. I can’t wait until his clothing arrives each season at my premier boutique, Anne's on the Avenue. I’ve also made Simon’s fabulous attire available in my online shop: www.annesontheavenue.com.  Just check out these four new irresistible spring dresses:


Celebrate your inner fairy princess in this delightful new chiffon dress by Simon Chang.  It has Monarch butterfly and other lovely butterfly wing prints blended into a pretty and feminine mosaic. We adore the wide ruffled chiffon collar that drapes over the shoulders, too. You’ll want to twirl and dance among the spring flowers in the forest when you wear this pretty Simon Chang dress.


Can a lace dress have attitude? Well, if Simon Chang designed it, the answer is yes! This little black dress is covered in gorgeous lace. But it has a sassy ruffled belt made of sheer black chiffon. You’ll love the comfortable but flirty wide shoulder straps, too. You’ll want to put on your party shoes and go have some fun in this sensational dress.


Maxi dresses have been fashion runway staples for a while now.  Of course, a maxi dress by Simon Chang is going to kick it up a notch. This mesmerizing maxi has a print inspired by the wild grasslands of Africa. The dress colour mimics the bright blue skies from the sleeveless shoulders to the waistline. A single stately tree reaches out to meet the sky at hip level. Below it are brush and grasses along the banks of a meandering African river. But the best part of the dress is the majestic leopard at the bottom. He looks as if he could leap right out of this captivating dress at his prey. 



This amazing dress is Simon Chang’s interpretation of a breath of fresh spring air. The mix of geometric and floral patterns gives it an exotic look. The fantastic peek-a-boo sleeves are totally unexpected accents. Everyone will want to know where you bought it. Make sure you tell them you got this dynamite dress at Anne’s on the Avenue!

Set Sail in Spring’s Nautical Fashions

Do you ever dream of sailing to exotic locales? Picture those stark white sails whipping back and forth with the bright blue skies above and the emerald green waters below. I love that image! And the best way for me to conjure it up is to wear the latest nautical fashions. At my premier boutique, Anne's on the Avenue or online at www.annesontheavenue.com, I have the perfect nautical attire to fit the bill. Here are some of my favorites:



This cheerful nautical print top is patriotic, too! It features a bold red, white and classic navy blue print. The pockets are handy, as well. This nautical top would look perfect with white capris. Try 
Bali's Basic Capris with Side Slit (sku: 5597).


Leave it to the masterful Frank Lyman to incorporate nautical style into a super stylish maxi dress. We love this spirited black and white dress! It’s the perfect attire for a day cruise about the islands or a romantic walk on the beach. No matter where you go in this nautical dress, heads will turn and you just might get a salute or two!


This perky nautical stripe jacket is just what the doctor ordered for springtime! I love the fact that the stripes are slanted in different direction on the arms and body. The different slants give this stylish jacket an optic effect.  It’s the perfect layering piece for springtime. Combine it with a polka dot top and Michael Phillips’ Leggings with Sheer Polka Dot Insets (sku: 5M1249) for a sensational look!


This nautical stripe top by Frank Lyman is the height of style. We love the wide black band at the hemline to help camouflage tummy bulge. It also features attractive ¾ length sleeves. Pair it with Frank’s Rouched Capris with Grommet Detail Bottom (sku: 46320). This outfit will be perfect for all your high seas adventures and on land, too!

Aren't these nautical fashions dreamy? I can smell the salty air and hear the seagulls just by looking at them. These lovely nautical theme fashions are sure to go fast, so come in soon for the best selection. Or shop for them online at www.annesontheavenue.com.
Presently, we are located in the Village Grove Plaza at 344 Manning Road in Tecumseh. But we’ll be moving to a new location soon to better serve you!

Introducing Michael Phillips at Anne's on the Avenue Online

If you've been following this blog you know I’ve been adding lots of exciting new designer collections to the Anne's on the Avenue online shop: www.annesontheavenue.com.  I'm pleased to announce the arrival of Michael Phillips’ sensational spring line. Here are some of our favourites:


I think this is a perfect day dress for exploring outdoor farmers’ and flea markets. The patchwork pattern is a perfect Bohemian blend. It is reminiscent of grandma’s vintage handkerchiefs and other dainty linens. The length works with both heels and flats. You’ll get plenty of mileage out of this delightful dress.


This lovely shirt is so romantic. It features a feminine ruffled hemline that drops below the hips. The back of the shit is equally feminine with a wispy chiffon inset in the middle. The inset fans out above and below a single center button. It appears pleated. The effect is so pretty!


This nautically-inspired jacket is just what the doctor ordered! Its cheerful stripes are not all vertical or horizontal. Look closely and you will see they are pleasantly slanted in different directions. It makes for a very attractive and fresh take on classic black and white stripes.


Are you as excited as I am about having Michael Phillips’ fashions online at www.annesontheavenue.com? Check the website soon for the best selection of these and other fabulous designer styles. I know you will find the spring looks your inner fashionista craves! My premier boutique, Anne's on the Avenue, is located in the Village Grove Plaza at 344 Manning Road in Tecumseh. We’d love to see you in person, too!
And always remember, your best style is confidence.

They are available right now in my premier boutique, Anne's on the Avenue or in my online shop: www.annesontheavenue.com. Here are a few of our favourites:

This flirty spring sweater features the silhouette of a lady in a wide brimmed hat. Doesn’t she look like she is about to give someone a peck on the cheek? We love the knobby slub knit, too. It adds texture that is often lacking in spring attire. This light-hearted sweater will put a smile on his face. It’s up to you what comes next!


This pretty cardigan is the perfect spring layering piece. It is available in six gorgeous colours: aqua blue, royal blue, white, coral, black and off white. It will be hard to choose just one colour, I guarantee it. It has lovely cascading ruffles in front.  You'll definitely be ready for romance in this flirty, feminine little cardigan!


This captivating spring cardigan is available in black or white. It features loose waterfall ruffles that drape romantically on either side. The sleeves are a flirtatious ¾ length. You won't go unnoticed as you clutch this stylish cardigan close to your heart. It’s guaranteed to get his attention.


This lovely little jacket is perfect for after dinner on those cool spring nights. It would look sensational with your favourite little black dress.  We love the notched collar effect when the toggle button is closed. And notice how the sides form a romantic ruffle under the toggle.  Add an irresistible smile and an admiring gaze or two and you’ll have him absolutely bedazzled!
