The young designer and former art kid Alessia Magnotta is the first Canadian designer to be featured in the Toronto Distillery District‘s Gilding the Lily. Alessia created her latest collection while taking care of her young family (she recentlyhad a baby!). With the support of her family who founded and operates Magnotta Winery. With a love for Beauty, Fashion and visual art Alessia took on the Bow as her brand, illustrating the boldness and strength in the woman that wears her designs. The collection features dainty bows, but with an edge and minimal modern vibe that makes it easy to style to any woman’s taste. With no traditional training or knowledge in medals, Alessia followed her vision to create beautiful jewelry. Gilding the Lily’s curator, stylist Annie Jagger couldn’t ignore the breezy, simple take to Alessia’s designs and invited the designer to feature her pieces at the store. Some pieces here are worn by Alessia herself.
