    It will be our pleasure to host Claire in Toronto this March in order to preview  new designs inspired by the cult  subcultures of Mods and Rockers which notoriously clashed in the resort towns of  Southern England in the 1960’s.

    Anticipate the forthcoming collection, C G: Mod Rocker-soon to be causing a sensation!
