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".


Welcome to the exciting World of 
Peter Nygård!

A True Rags to Riches Story

After immigrating from Helsinki, Finland to Deloraine, MB, CDA - the Nygård family lived in a 8' by 10' converted shed with no running water - rags for blankets and only a rusty old stove for heat.

Building a capsule wardrobe for fall

Building a capsule wardrobe is all about creating a selection of pieces you can wear over and over again. Pieces that are versatile. Pieces that can be styled several different ways. With that in mind, well-made items should be a top priority this season if you want your clothes to stand the test of time. Here are our top 3 must-haves when it comes to curating your very own capsule wardrobe for fall.

Beautifully made basics - Your choice of pant can make or break an outfit, which is why it’s so important to invest in great bottoms for fall.

Cozy sweaters - No fall capsule wardrobe would be complete without cozy knits! When it comes to slightly heavier fabrics and thicker materials, sticking to block colours and tonal shades is guaranteed to keep you looking chic and effortless.

Bold separates - While basics are an essential part of any capsule wardrobe, it’s also key to ensure you add a few trend-driven pieces to your collection to avoid wardrobe boredom.
