Twenty-four years ago, we began as a small family business designing, selling, and producing women’s dresses. While we still sell dresses, along the way, we expanded to include all categories of apparel and accessories for women, men, and kids.  Over the years, we partnered with some fantastic global brands such as Miss Sixty, Energie, James Perse, ACNE, Filippa K, NUDIE, Maison Kitsune, Tomorrowland, and many more as their exclusive distributor and retail partners in North America. 



The group’s largest division Mark Edwards’s Apparel, is an essential partner to many of North America’s leading retailers, providing design, trend research, sourcing, and logistics. Last year we produced and shipped over 70 million units in such locations as China, India, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Italy, Spain, Portugal.

In 2007 the group launched its own travel-inspired brand WANT Les Essentiels as well as the WANT Apothecary retail concept, with stores in Montreal, Toronto, and NY.
