Tonia DeBellis

Tonia (tahn-yuh) DeBellis’ namesake collection of ‘wear-anywhere-active-wear’ captures her passionate vision of style for women with active lifestyles. Tonia draws her inspiration from her life on-the-go.

“My collections are about a feeling and not an age,” states DeBellis. Her aesthetic and attention to design, detail and fit continuously garner industry praise. A strong base of consumer devotees awaits her latest signature item “The Haute Hoodie,” her extraordinary take on an ordinary sweatshirt. Tonia DeBellis is confident that you don’t have to sacrifice comfort to look great. Her collection gives women what they need: no-fuss fashion. “I design to make women of all shapes and sizes look beautiful, feel beautiful and add a touch of drama to everyday life.” Why the Hoodie? It’s the favorite item in DeBellis’ wardrobe. “I work in it, play in it and live in it. 

The line is designed Canada. Quality is always top of mind and by keeping the production local Tonia supports manufacturing jobs in North America. “We take great pride in creating our own exclusive fabrics and design every print. 

As a Canadiana brand, the Tonia DeBellis collection captures the spirit of the North and the essence of Canada with each seasonal delivery. DeBellis works with fellow Canadian artists and craftsmen each season, and every capsule features carefully crafted patterns including this season’s take on the hottest plaid. The use of genuine coyote fur and leather adds a touch of drama and luxury while the rich hues, textures and novel signature prints lends a designer feel. The look is feminine yet edgy and while it’s perfect for après sport, the Haute Hoodie is something you will want to travel, work and live in everyday.
