Narcissist’s clothes are made for women who are looking for chic comfort. It’s all about the woven jersey dresses, but there’s also a beautiful collection of modern separates, including coats and trousers. One of Narcissist’s signature dresses, “Pamela,” can be worn eight different ways (and there’s even a video to show you how it’s done). In 2006, Narcissist launched a line of ethereal, eco-friendly, soy-cotton-spandex dresses. The boutique also sells accessories by other independent Canadian designers, so you can put the finishing touches on a fabulous new outfit.
If the Shirt Doesn’t Fit
Narcissist is the brainchild of Vancouver designer Sara Robson Francoeur. In 1996, after learning that her favourite t-shirt had been discontinued, Francoeur started making her own and selling them. Soon after, the shirts were on the shelves among other indie Vancouver designers . . . and Narcissist grew from there.
Bridal Shopping Party
In 2005, Narcissist launched a collection of modern bridesmaid dresses. Perfect for women who prefer function to frills, the dresses ensure that you feel great and look even better. Knee-length cotton bridesmaid dresses are made-to-order and come in about a dozen different colours. Make dress shopping an event, by booking an after-hours shopping party. If you have seven or more guests, Narcissist will not only spring for the cocktails and appetizers, they will donate $100 to the Beauty Night Society on your behalf. One-on-one wardrobe consultations with a stylist are also available.
A Fitting Name
“Jennifer J.” is beautiful and so is the dress that borrows her name. Jennifer is a real-life Vancouver success story. She overcame a history of violence, abuse and addiction with the help of non-profit programs. She has inspired many, including Francoeur. In addition to naming a dress after Jennifer, the designer donates 20 percent of sales from this item to Beauty Night Society – a volunteer program that provides makeovers, wellness and nutritional programs for marginalized women and youths.
