Profile Last Updated: January 27, 2009
The most prominent sportswear manufacturer in the country, Nygard International was founded in 1967, and retains its headquarters in Toronto while doing business around the world. A variety of different product lines target adult women: NYGARD, Bianca Nygard, ALIA, TanJay and Jayset. Departments within the store focus on denim, blacks and whites, petites, pants and clearance items.
Nygard International is best known for blending elements of high fashion with functionality, popular with businesswomen looking to enhance their work wardrobes with tweed, leather and paisley. The clothing leans to the conservative side, but cut in a modern and feminine fashion, while the outerwear often boasts a military influence with high collars, brass details and a trim, tailored silhouette. The pieces are made in styles for all types of body shapes and forms, and the colour palate is designed to create a wardrobe on which one can easily build. For cocktail hour, Nygard offers chiffon skirts, halter tops and other flirtatious items.
Peter Nygard got his start with the purchase of a women’s garment manufacturer that went from a modest operation in Winnipeg to a billion-dollar dynasty. Nygard boasts of being the first manufacturer with air-conditioned factories. The fabric is sourced from around the globe, patterns are designed with help from the latest technology, and garments are guaranteed to have a consistent quality of fitting.
