Metamorphose is a ready-to-wear line that stands out by its unique style, its feminine cuts and attention to detail and impeccable finish. Entirely made in its Montreal workshop by a quality-conscious team, the Metamorphose signature is synonymous with authenticity, femininity, comfort and durability.
WORKSHOP-BOUTIQUE: ESPACE FLO
Since July 2019, Metamorphose has now been established in the ESPACE FLO boutique, a new boutique that brings together more than 75 artists, artisans and designers under one roof, in the heart of the Fleury West street in Montreal.
It is in this environment that the workshop-boutique sits as the epicenter of the creative universe of the designer. Each garment is created and crafted with a particular attention to detail. Every step of the manufacturing process is carefully executed by a caring team, within this workshop.
Aware of the long-term impact on the environment, each collection is produced primarily from the end of batches of fabrics from Canada & USA, in very small quantities. The workshop also saves all scrap fabric resulting from cutting and sends it to various non-profit recovery organizations or individuals wishing to use them for relevant projects. *If you want to get our scrap fabric for a particular project, do not hesitate to contact us: [email protected]Services
The attention and the care taken in the manufacturing of our products makes it possible to create exclusive, timeless and durable pieces. The workshop offers alterations and / or repair of your favourite pieces that may have been a victim of their success.
