Top name in women’s fashion is Peter Nygard

Canadian fashion designer Peter Nygård walked into the room at LaSalle College International in Jakarta confidently, ready to share with the students his years of experience in the world he loves profoundly.

The founder and chairman of the Canada’s leading women’s fashion house, NYGÅRD, was recently in town to share his experience and expertise with students at LaSalle during a two-hour fashion clinic at the campus.

In addition, he was also in the capital to attend the grand opening of the first flagship store Galeries Lafayette Jakarta to feature NYGÅRD brands.

His hard work and passion for fashion has made it one of the largest women’s clothing manufacturers and suppliers in the world generating around US$1 billion in annual sales.

Today, Nygård International has three separate divisions: Peter Nygård Signature, the bridge line; Bianca Nygård; and the Nygård Collection, the mid-range assortment. In Canada, Nygård International is based in Toronto, while its world headquarter is in Times Square, New York, which opened in 2009.

Designer Peter Nygard has the perfect fit for all women

While the ‘60s may not have exactly been known for fashion (think psychedelic colors and mismatching patterns), it was also the decade that gave us the miniskirt, the bikini and skinny jeans.

In fact, one could argue that was when popular fashion was born—and when Canadian designer Peter Nygard first got his start.

Fast forward to present day, and Nygard has built his empire, Nygard International, not on the likes of those pieces that float down the runway at New York Fashion Week, but rather on collections that are timeless, well-tailored and affordable.

“I am not into avant-garde fashion,” Nygard said in an interview with Women’s Wear Daily. Instead, Nygard’s lines target women over 25.

While the fit of a garment remains paramount, the turn of the century also has seen changes to the types of fabric and material used. To this end, the Winnipeg-based company produces many of its lines—from evening wear to cozy cotton street wear—in stain-resistant, wrinkle-free materials that are guaranteed to fit every woman.

Comments on Nygard’s Facebook page attest to the designer’s obsession with the “perfect fit” for all woman regardless of size. Whether you are a curvy petite, someone who slips into a size 10 or 12 with ease, or a woman with more (or fewer) curves, Nygard guarantees that his company has something for everyone.

“Everyday people are size 14 [and] are 5-foot-4 or 5-foot-6. They do not have perfect figures [but] they want to be fashionable like … models. They want to look slimmer, younger, prettier, but normally people don’t cater to them. We cater to them,” Nygard said in an interview.

Currently, Nygard produces his lines for retail chains such as Sears and Dillard’s, along with operating 160 of its own stores north of the 49th parallel.

Nygard Slims are Instant Magic

Last month I got a special delivery from Nygard Fashions – two pairs of their brand new Nygard Slims collection in legging and bootcut styles. Okay normally I don’t necessarily think of Nygard as the most fashionable place to shop but after I got my black lace top gifted from this earlier this year and wore it to death, I realized that Nygard Fashions can actually not only hold a place in my wardrobe, but can also be a pretty reliable source for classic staples.

And these new Nygard Slims pants are exactly that. I’ve only had them three weeks and they have both taken over my wardrobe in a significant way. I wasn’t sure what to expect of them, I mean they are just pants right? I’ve heard that there was a lot of buzz about them and women were loving them much like when they tried on their first pair of Lululemon yoga pants. And then I tried them on. OMG. I’m not even kidding. All of a sudden I went from a size four to a size zero. Instantly. Magic.
