The Edmonton made-to-measure shoe company is here to stay.

Stepping into Vancouver for good, this year’s Designers of the Year fashion finalist, Poppy Barley, will set up shop permanently at Nicole Bridger’s Gastown flagship location this week. To celebrate, the Edmonton made-to-measure shoe company—founded by sisters Justine and Kendall Barber in 2012—will have a kick-off party (open to the public) this Thursday, November 24, where guests will be given first access to their new holiday accessories collection (think cool leather backpacks, heeled loafers and chic handbags), along with the exclusive shop-in-shop stock. Already in celebratory mood, they will also be hosting a two-day pop-up shop on Friday and Saturday featuring their full Fall and Holiday 2016 collections, where you can get measured and also buy small leather goods and gift cards for Christmas.
