The designs are carried out based on the number of resources available in the minimum-waste approach. Each garment is designed and manufactured with care and thoughts that it obtains its character and story.
All Phoenix Ba designs are made locally in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
“Quality garments created with thought and consideration will last longer and build a more meaningful relationship with the owners.” Phoenix Ba
About the Designer
Phoenix Ba is a Toronto-based fashion designer specialized in women’s evening wear and occasional wear.
Surrounded by fabrics, needles, sheers and chalks, Phoenix was raised by her parents, who were pattern drafters and tailors for uniforms and suits. The passion for drawing and fabricating beautiful dresses was a part of her growing up. It was only natural for her to study fashion design and technique education at George Brown College, where she also discovered her tremendous interest in surface textiles.
With study and work experience in Asia, Europe and North America, Phoenix observed the historical and cultural differences that she integrated concepts and elements from the world to the fashion designs that demonstrate humanistic solicitude. Combining aesthetic judgements and technical skills, the designs are presented as a means for self-expression that each garment has its own story and characters.
