Bridger is one of North America’s leading ethical designers. Her flagship boutique is on West 4th’s main drag at 2151, between Yew and Arbutus. Bridger was named Canadian Eco Designer of the Year in 2010. Her look is simple, effortless chic for the modern woman. The price points reflect the designer’s tailoring talent as well as her care selecting ethical materials. Browse her line here.
