Hot Shopping: Ann Taylor Sashays into Toronto

Add one more brand to the ever-growing list of American retailers opening up north of the border. Ann Taylor’s first foray into the global market includes two stores right here in this city. Creative Director Lisa Axelson says Toronto was the perfect choice: “It is a beautiful city filled with modern, sophisticated women who lead busy lives, and we are excited to bring a trusted fashion destination that offers great styles as well as incredible versatility.” Named for a best-selling dress—not an actual person—the iconic company is best known as a producer of smart, sophisticated attire for the modern woman, featuring dresses, suiting and separates that take a lady from the office to a post-work cocktail party to a weekend of errands and adventure. Best of all, pricing is consistent with the U.S., making cross-border shopping excursions a thing of the past.  —Linda Luong
