The origin of Judith & Charles is a classic tale of girl meets boy, and another of life’s enduring themes: sometimes great things happen when you least expect them. He was a charming Frenchman with an undeniable joie de vivre and entrepreneurial spirit. She was a talented young woman with an instinctive eye for fashion that combined both artistry and function. Their chance meeting on a Caribbean Island set the story of Judith & Charles in motion.
Tailored with Love in Canada
Each Judith & Charles collection is a deliberate fusion and contrast of Judith and Charles: feminine softness and strength are integrated with the inspirations of well-structured menswear. The instinct to design and manufacture eighty percent of the collection locally means we are both homegrown and supportive of the local economy. It also allows us to have full control over our production, pushing our strongest assets - fit and quality - to the forefront.
“Clients can be confident every time they walk into a store : they know they're going to see the finest collections and be greeted by highly trained staff. They know the whole experience will be impeccable.”
— CHARLES LE PIERRÈS

We are proud sponsors of Dress for Success Montreal, an organization dedicated to the advancement of women in business.
