Amazon Canada announces the return of the Amazon Designer Spotlight, an exclusive online fashion series showcasing Canadian designers. Hosted by celebrity stylist Brad Goreski, the series follows as he unveils each designer’s personal and professional story in two-minute shorts dropping even day on the Amazon Canada‘s Instagram channel (@amazonca).
The first video drops on Monday, October 17 at 9 am ET with the final video premiering on Saturday, October 22. Six designers featured will also have their collections available for customers to shop and discover at amazon.ca/DesignerSpotlight.
Enlisting the help of their friends and neighbours, collections in each video are worn by influencers that are unique to each designer’s brand, connecting creatives in communities across the country. Designers will also share how they are choosing to “pay-it-forward” within the fashion community through their Amazon powered $25,000 give-back grant.
