Founded in 1989, Risqué Clothing is a staple of the Bloor Annex community. As the owner herself describes it, Risqué is a “customer-oriented boutique”. There is never any pressure to buy – you are welcome to pop in and browse at your leisure. But if you do need assistance, one of the friendly staff is there with a smile to help you find that perfect piece for your wardrobe.
Risqué carries a wide variety of brands, including BB Dakota, Dish, Kersh, Bionic, Mink Pink, C’est Moi and many, many more. They specialize in dresses (and do they ever know how to accessorize them! Just take a look at the mannequins on display throughout the boutique or on their Facebook page) but also offer a selection of jeans and outerwear during the fall and winter seasons. You’ll also find a wide selection of belts, jewelry and sunglasses. Need to know how to pull an outfit together? Just ask a sales associate for some invaluable tips!
The price points are perfect for fashionistas on a budget and the styles change weekly. With a focus on Canadian brands and designers (they even carry Anice Jewelry, whom we featured on Art of Fashion just last week!) Risqué Clothing is a true fashion treasure trove in the heart of Toronto. Pop in and find out what all of the fuss is about!
