UNIFORM COLLABORATION - Toronto designer Jeremy Laing & Thompson Toronto

"For the Thompson Toronto we developed a custom dress, something sleek and constructed, based on a classic cocktail shape but with signature design elements, in a specially woven Italian jacquard fabric that evokes the materials and lines of the hotel. It was a pleasure to work with Freed Developments, whose design-lead approach I admire, as well as the Thompson Hotel group. "
