Today, we’ll be shining the spotlight on Monica Mei’s designer label Aime, whose collection of original women’s apparel is undoubtedly inspired by a passionate love for fashion.
Canadian fashion designer Monica Mei always had the guiding philosophy to “Love yourself. Love others. Love luxury.” Inspired by this motto, Monica created her fashion label Aime, a name that derives from the French word for love.
After graduating from Ryerson University’s School of Fashion, Monica Mei obtained her Bachelor of Design degree in 2007. During her graduating year, Aime won her the coveted Ryerson University-wide Standard Broadcasting Corporation’s $25,000 Business Plan Competition. What's more, the Fashion Design Council of Canada’s Designer Development Fund, a Canadian version of the CFDA/Vogue Fund, named Monica one of the top 5 finalists in 2009. Her elegant designs were also recognized by Flare magazine, who chose her to be on “The A-list Canadian designers you need to know” upon the debut of her new collection.
Monica’s label is said to be an extension of her own personality and exudes a level of creativity that shines through every one of her designs.
