theres no place like the studio

Step inside our studio!
This is where all the creative designs come to life. Here at Greta Constantine, we always have our thinking caps on. Especially right now, finishing up our Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Take a look at the back of our studio where it all happens.

Here in our studio, we have racks and racks of patterns. With all that paper, you've got to stay organized!

Greta's studio! This is where all of the Greta Constantine pieces are sewn from start to finish. Here's one of our awesome interns working hard!

The sewing station! Our trusted machines will never let us down.

Lots and lots of thread. Wouldn't be able to sew anything together without these. Need a blue thread? Which shade?

Hope you enjoyed our studio tour! Don't forget to comment, follow us on Twitter, and write to us on Facebook

the TIFFing point

Did someone say TIFF? Oh right... We kind of forgot about the once annual film extravaganza located in the heart of our hometown. Why, you ask? For one thing, we are super busy working on our SS 2012 Collection (SO excited to show you guys!) as well as FW 2011 production. We have been so honoured to dress some seriously fabulous ladies in an array of unique Greta Constantine wears. Stacey, take it away!

GLAM-OUR! So You Think You Can Dance Choreographer Stacey Tookey fully ROCKING a Greta Constantine draped, one-shouldered, dress on the studio set (perfect picture backdrop, non?) of So You Think You Can Dance Canada.

You don't mess with success. Krystin Pellerin rules the event at the TIFF Producer's Ball, sporting a prim and proper Greta Constantine origami dress.

Susan Chong of SC/PR with vocal talent John Legend, gracefully donning a slinky, curve hugging, Greta Constantine jersey gown, at AMFAR's gala.

Have you spotted any lust-worthy Greta Constantine gowns on the Red Carpet in our humble abode during this year's Toronto International Film Festival? What has been your favourite sartorial pick so far?
