Franco Mirabelli has long been one of Canada’s most progressive and visionary designers. Mirabelli manufacturers his collection in Toronto, wholesales the line across Canada and US, and owns three Mirabelli retail shops in Toronto.
His down-to-earth personality reflects his simple beginnings. He started in his parents’ basement, with a lot of drive and his mother’s help as a professional seamstress. Mirabelli studied at the prestigious American design school Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. On graduation, he was tapped by the Anne Klein Company in New York as a design assistant, and trained under the guidance of Louis Dell’Olio and Donna Karan. In 1984, he returned to Toronto and launched the first FRANCO MIRABELLI collection.
Mirabelli’s label has developed a reputation as a hip, sophisticated line. His designs reflect his European roots, with an emphasis on luxurious European fabrics and precise tailoring. His signature style has been described as elegant, modern, and sexy.
