We had the good fortune of connecting with Gargi Ghugare & Caitlyn Bloch and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Gargi Ghugare & Caitlyn Bloch, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
Right from Studio’s inception, sustainability has remained the heartbeat of our brand. Our collective experience working in the fashion industry exposed us to the harmful effects it has on the environment. In an effort to avoid contributing to the damage, we’ve embraced the practice of slow fashion and every Daysuit is made with eco-friendly Lenzing Ecovero fibres.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Studio was founded by fashion designers and best friends Gargi Ghugare and Caitlyn Bloch. Studio is a sustainably made luxury womenswear brand that is dedicated to comfort, quality and elevating your everyday. Studio’s styles are transitional: from indoor to outdoor, home to your workspace and brunch to dinner. The brand is known for inventing the Daysuit – a one-piece outfit crafted to create true ease and elevation in a woman’s daily routine. Sustainability is at the heart of Studio’s brand ethos and all Daysuits are thoughtfully designed, sustainably sourced and responsibly produced in small batches to encourage conscious consumption.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Toronto is an incredibly diverse city filled with amazing places to visit, especially in the summer. Surprisingly, Toronto has many beautiful beaches all along Lake Ontario, and Hanlan’s Point is one of the best. Next, we’d head over to Queen street for a fun shopping experience where you can buy everything from unique vintage finds to high fashion. Toronto is famous for it’s food scene, so we would definitely have to hit up Koreatown for an authentic meal. No tour is complete without experiencing Toronto’s nightlife. From Hawaiian themed bars to huge nightclubs with the world’s best DJ’s, the city has it all.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We cannot thank our families and friends enough! We would not be where we are without their unwavering belief in us and their constant love and support.
When the Daysuit was in its infancy, their excitement about the idea along with their honest feedback allowed us to create the amazing product we have today.
