Designer Spotlight: Nixxi

Nixxi's aesthetic is fusing contrasts: structural lines with casually draped silhouettes; soft knits with textured wovens; simple refined classics with edgy contemporary cuts. Designs that are versatile and can be easily individualized by the wearer's own personal style. With an emphasis on great fit and high quality sustainable fabrics and production methods, the line is made in Vancouver, BC.

Fabric textures play a major role in the inspiration for each season. Knits and wovens made from organic cotton, hemp, bamboo, soy, lyocell, and linen are featured throughout line.

They try to make the best choices that create for the least amount of impact on our planet. Their fabrics come from fibers grown without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, or from fast-growing renewable crops.

They choose to work with a local production house that employs fair wages and a comfortable working environment for their employees, thus sustaining a positive working relationship which also results in a more quality finished, longer-lasting garment.
