I’m bringing back this post from May, The Silver Icing Clothing Brand! Why? The first sentence in the paragraph below says it all. At the last event I attended, again, so many people hadn’t heard of this really great Canadian company. If you agree, please share and help me get the word out 🙂
It always surprises me when meeting people at vendor events or online who have never heard of the Silver Icing clothing brand. While still new, there are enough stylists all over Canada that I can’t imagine how we haven’t reached everyone yet! So let’s talk a little bit about the Silver Icing clothing brand.
What is the Silver Icing Clothing brand?
Actually, to answer that question, I must first answer with who the Silver Icing clothing brand is. And her name is Christina Marcano. She is our founder and CEO. There is a blurb about her and her vision on my website About Us page. Years ago she started a different company, called Skyler Clothing. Though she, and Skyler Clothing, were featured on Dragon’s Den, it didn’t quite work out. From that, Silver Icing was eventually born, with great success! Christina was even featured on Dragon’s Den again just this year in an update – it’s posted below the video linked above. She is proof that you can achieve your dreams, even when others may not think so.
So that’s the backstory on how Silver Icing came to be. But one of the most important features, for me, is that we are Canadian based (we ship internationally though!). Our warehouse is located in Surrey, BC and our website prices are in Canadian dollars (a great deal for you American ladies right now…just sayin).
Another point that is important to me is that most of our own Silver Icing clothing brand is manufactured in California. The exception is our SI exclusive activewear leggings, which are manufactured in Vancouver, Canada as of just this year. I’m far from perfect, but I am more aware of where my ‘stuff’ comes from. I love knowing I don’t have to think about it with the pieces I buy from Silver Icing.
What sizes ranges does Silver Icing offer?
SI branded pieces are generally sized from XXS-XXXL. Yes, Silver Icing realizes we come in ALL shapes and sizes, and really tries to accommodate every woman. This is easier to do when manufacturing our own pieces, of course. But our buying team is also trying to get this point across to the brands we work with. And they are making some headway! This fall we should see an increase in the sizing options for at least one of the major brands we carry as a result.
Stylist opportunities are currently only open to Canadian residents, but the option to open it up to the US is a topic of discussion that comes up a lot. If you would like to be informed when that option becomes available, please contact me and I’ll keep you updated!
And that’s the Silver Icing clothing brand, in a nutshell. I’ll be back to feature our exclusive leggings in a post of their own soon…they really are that good, they need their own spotlight 😉
*Since the original post date, Silver Icing has announced a new company! A kid’s clothing company, to be coming soon. If Silver Icing interests you, and you shop for kids, you’ll definitely want to check it out on these posts, here and here 🙂
