Aritzia is an innovative design house and fashion boutique. We're about individual style. We're obsessed with quality. And we think shopping should be fun. It's nice to meet you. In the beginning The Hill family started Aritzia inside their 70-year-old department store in Vancouver. When Brian Hill opened the first standalone boutique in 1984, the idea was simple: offer beautiful clothes in aspirational spaces with exceptional service. Women seemed to like what we were doing, so we grew. And we've kept on growing ever since. The Design Studio We develop our own brands, treating each as an independent label with its own creative team and aesthetic. As a group, they have a few things in common: an effortless appeal, a focus on fit and an of-the-moment point of view. Fabric and Construction We sweat the small stuff. It's why we search out the best mills and factories around the world. It's why we consider (and reconsider) every last seam, pleat and button. It's why our clothes look and feel so good. The Mix We round out our selection with pieces from brands we love – ones who obsess about craftsmanship and design as much as we do.
