Montreal-based designer Brittany Wacher was born and raised on a farm in Western Canada and educated in Vancouver. She spent a few years in between Europe, Asia and Canada gaining experience in the fashion industry by working for Asian art and fashion publications. Wacher then moved to the Netherlands where she worked with Dutch designer Pauline Van Dongen. It was under Van Dongen’s tuleage that she began to refine her approach to garment construction inspired by Van Dongen’s concept of fashion:science. Wacher founded her label, Brit Wacher, in January 2013 in Montreal.
Wacher’s current design work focuses on her perspectives in experiencing life through fantasy and the surrounding realistic core conflicts of the world. Her pieces are based upon her concept of duality and the passage of energy through time and space, and she is interested in creating a conceptual display of both shapely-tailored craftsmanship integrating flowing draped elements, subtle obscurities and well-made garments.
