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 Nygard!

Luxe Denim Slims available in plus size

Are you a curvaceous woman that struggles to find clothing that fits well and looks stylish? You’re not alone. According to a study in the International Journal of Fashion Design, Technology and Education, the ‘average’ American woman is now a size 16-18.

If this is true, how come so many of us find it impossibly difficult to shop at the mall? Sure, there might be a small rail of plus size items tucked away in the corner, but if size 16-18 is the new majority, why isn’t there more variety available? And as for those few retailers that do cater to women with a fuller figure, modern styles and trends tend to be shunned in favour of oversized pieces with little to offer in terms of colour, print or shape. Bor-ing.

Don’t despair! We know how frustrating it can be to try and find plus size jeans that make you look and feel great. Shopping is supposed to be a fun experience, and you should never resign yourself to buying something you don’t completely love simply because there is no better alternative.

Jeans are notoriously difficult to shop for, regardless of your size. We’ve all scoured the internet in search of the elusive ‘perfect jean’, jumping from site to site without much success. Luxe Denim is about to change all of that.

Say hello to Luxe Denim Slims, our best selling denim collection that is also available in plus size.

There’s no time like the present to embrace your beautiful curves and shapely silhouette. Banish baggy pants to the back of your wardrobe and feel sexy and on-trend, whatever your size, thanks to your new favourite pair of plus size jeans. Check out our size chart to see which fit is right for you!

Get ready for the first day of fall with plaid

The first day of fall arrives on September 22 (how did that happen?!) Step up your style game with bold plaid prints, on-trend tartan and cool-girl check.

Checks, plaid, tartan…this iconic print comes in many different shapes, colours and sizes, but we’re all familiar with its distinct square pattern that becomes a staple item in every woman’s closet come fall. Something about it seems to remind us of the leaves changing colour, temkperatures starting to drop and getting wrapped up in cozy layers.

Plaid has proven to be extremely versatile and has been one of fashion’s most ubiquitous prints over the years: punks wore tartan as a sign of rebellion in the 70s, preppy fashionistas wear theirs prim and proper with outfits reminiscent of private school uniforms (think Alicia Silverstone in 90s cult classic Clueless) and even lumberjacks are renowned for sporting classic ‘buffalo plaid’ and flannel shirts.

Not sure if plaid is right for you? You don’t have to be in a rock band (or cutting down trees in a forest for that matter) to incorporate plaid into your wardrobe. Fall is the perfect time to embrace this timeless trend and it’s easy to get the look with our wide range of plaid to suit each and every taste.
