This tweet of the Lauren Dress by Rachel Sin, is everything.
I got to meet Rachel during Ottawa Fashion Week a few years ago – she dressed me the night we went to see her show.
She has a natural beauty and is so down to earth – aside from her obvious talent, you can tell that she loves what she does. Talent is one thing but passion is everything.
The different faces of design.
Rachel Sin is a native of Toronto. After graduating from Carleton University with a Masters Degree in Architecture, she did a three-year internship with BBB Architects in Ottawa and worked on the Ottawa Convention Centre.
Art comes in all forms.
Architecture and fashion have so much in common – when you think about it: lines, shapes, angles.
“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”
Artist usually have more than one creative outlet. While attending Carleton, Rachel took sewing classes at night.
In 2009, she launched her fashion line Rachel Sin. Her collections include skirts, pants, tops, blazers, jumpsuits and dresses. All pieces are perfectly tailored and detailed. Most can go from the office to a night on the town.

I can speak from experience on this one. Her dresses are sculpted to enhance the female body.
One quote comes to mind.
“A woman’s dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.”
The Rachel Sin label is all about dressing with confidence.
Today she works between Toronto, Los Angeles and Hong Kong.
What is her dream?
To design a store with the clothes she designed.
That is what you call – full circle.
