Most people talk about Peter J. Nygård, Chairman of NYGÅRD (International), in terms of his classic rags-to-riches story – the Finnish immigrants' son, who stitched up an empire out of women's clothing and is now the quintessential self-made man. This story overlooks another side of Peter Nygård – a hard driven man who has created a standard of excellence for the Canadian Women’s Fashion Industry, whose label is the #1 recognized label in the Canadian marketplace, and whose signature is recognized in fashion centres across the globe.

Peter Nygård’s success story began when he gathered his life savings and borrowed $8,000 capital to purchase 20% of a women’s garment manufacturer with $800,000 in annual sales, which within a few years he owned outright - renaming it 'NYGÅRD' & turning it around from near bankruptcy into the bustling dynasty that it is today! The speed with which Nygård claimed his #1 position in the industry is attributed to the uniqueness of his business decisions and his work ethic that includes 14-16 hour days/seven days a week. But then again, as Nygård says, "The only time you are working is when you wish you were doing something else".

Business Casual

If your workplace lives by a business-casual approach to dressing, finding the sweet spot between professional and relaxed is key. As a general rule, a smarter top is ideal when styled with denim.

For example, a smart blouse can be suitably dressed down with smart jeans and heels and the same applies to wearing a smarter pant with an easy-going top to perfect your office-chic look.

If you sit at your desk pretty much all day long, comfort is key. Our BN jeans feature 360° stretch and look sophisticated paired with this cute ruffle top that was made for summer.
