What if you could do anything you wanted and could throw out the fashion rules on how you buy your clothes? Thatquestion was the genesis for the creation of Toppers by Wilson Marquis by Jane Wilson Marquis & long-time client Sara Cassis.Men through the experience of “The Tailor” have always been able to pick a style and a fabric and have an article of clothing that could be uniquely their own. Women have been less fortunate, unless of course they have had the “Couture” experience as offered in our Jane Wilson-Marquis Couture division which provides the ultimate in customization.
Enter Toppers by Wilson-Marquis, offering what we are calling the “semi couture experience”. A Ready to Wear,(RTW) line with a twist. Yes, of course you can buy what you see, exactly what the RTW term infers, but if you would like to enter the world of customized options enter the world of “Toppers”. For example on choosing a silhouette you like you can then make further choices in fabric, details and even rethink the color of the lining. If this appeals to your creative side we promise to make the process seamless and provide you with the necessary guidance in making the decision that is right for you.
The main design focus of Toppers is the RTW line of jackets and vests for day and evening. This RTW line draws from the basic elements the couture division is known for, namely beautiful fabrics, attention to detail and timeless design. We are also a women-centric company and so we are also invested in providing a range of sizes that fit real
women. It is our attempt at crossing the age divide, something we feel present fashion lacks.
The Line also includes various pieces that we consider wardrobe staples. Basic sheath dress’s, skirts and simple bias cut tops that stand alone but also co-ordinate with our jackets. Whether you are attending a relaxed late morning brunch in the country, a business meeting or an evening event that requires the ultimate in urbane chic we hope you will choose Toppers. Our intention is to provide “wardrobe versatility” and so we designed this line to be right for any occasion that may come your way.
The collection was launched in late 2013 with a series of trunk shows that confirmed to the founders of Toppers that women welcomed the ability to have input into their own sense of style, especially at a cost that is not prohibitive. We believe that if you choose our customized options you make it “your own”. We promise it will be an experience
that will be fun, rewarding and personal.
