Our Story

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.

At Cherry Velvet, we believe that beauty comes in a variety of shapes and sizes – and we design with that in mind, with sizing that ranges from small through to 3X, and styling that carefully considers comfort and fit.

Designer Diane Kennedy understands the complexity of fit, sizing and retro style – and, most importantly, knows that women of all sizes want to feel cute, sexy and comfortable. That’s why she chooses the most adorable prints that she can find, and then spends an enormous amount of time fitting her unique designs on a diverse spectrum of body types, so that the final product fits like it’s been custom made, just for you. Customers love the simple but important touches that go the extra step in ensuring comfort: like designs that cover up bra straps and pockets in every dress.

“I truly feel like I’ve done my job well when a curvy girl finds THE dress, and her face lights up when she sees how perfectly it fits, and how beautiful she looks,” says Diane, the designer behind Cherry Velvet.

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.

We want you to feel as good about wearing our clothes as you look in them!
