Our Story

Cherry Velvet dresses at the Canadian Museum of Flight

A dream of vintage charm, modern personality and unparalleled design: Cherry Velvet draws on the fashion inspirations of yesteryear to create retro glam dresses that fit today’s woman.

Our dresses take their cues from mid-century modern designs but are designed with fabrics, sizing and quality that are as modern as the women who wear them. At Cherry Velvet, we believe that beauty comes in a variety of shapes and sizes – and we design with that in mind, with sizing and styling that carefully considers comfort and fit. And of course every single dress has generous secret pockets!

Cherry Velvet dresses

Since 2011 we've made our dresses locally, the old fashioned way in quality, natural fabrics including 100% cotton and bamboo jersey that's knitted and dyed in a Canadian mill. Our fabrics are chosen carefully, not just for colour and pattern but for feel and quality. The end result? A fantasy of florals, polka dots, plaids, animals, magical prints, and more.

We love what we do, but it’s also important to us how we do it: we’re committed to supporting jobs and manufacturing in Canada. All of our dresses are designed and ethically produced in beautiful Vancouver, B.C.
