World MasterCard Fashion Week > Holt Renfrew
There’s no place like Holts! Celebrating a 175-year heritage, Holt Renfrew is recognized worldwide for its inspired shopping experience. Once a purveyor of fashion to Her Majesty Queen Victoria, Holt Renfrew began in 1837 as a modest hat shop in Quebec City. Over the years the brand developed and expanded across Canada. In the 1930′s Holt Renfrew began exclusive accounts with some of the best designers in Europe & in 1947 hosted Monsieur Christian Dior when he launched his “New Look”. After many years of foreign ownership Holt Renfrew was bought in 1986 by W. Galen & The Hon. Hilary M. Weston. Under their ownership Holt Renfrew has become Canada’s destination for luxury retail & is home to the greatest names in Canadian fashion. Holt Renfrew is proud to support Canadian designers, and this week highlights the fall collections of some of our brightest stars: Dennis Merotto, Jeremy Laing, Judith & Charles, Lida Baday, Line, Mackage, Smythe & TwentyCluny.
