Lost In

Wanting to give people a sense of direction, we aren’t just a brand but a connection to the community that we come from. Subway lines (for example) are a major artery of the city. Being able to connect people to every aspect of their city, and allowing them the chance to represent who they are is the goal. Designed and produced in Toronto we are what you can call home grown.

Melanin Mrkt

The Melanin Mrkt is a store inside the Pickering Markets opened every weekend Saturdays and Sundays 9:00am to 5:00pm. 90% of the brands we carry are black owned companies, authors and artists. When you support Melanin MRKT your money is going right back into your community. We have big plans for the Melanin MRKT! We will be a fully operational store in 2019. We are spending our first operational year working on building brand awareness and a firm customer base. We support all our vendors and will even direct customers to your website. We just want to be another avenue for customers to access product that represents them.

Love and Nudes

Hi! I’m Chantal. Thanks for visiting.

For over a decade I’ve worked in the fashion and beauty industries in a variety of ways - as a fashion editor, wardrobe stylist, and product developer. Motivated by the glaring absence and misrepresentation of everyday products for women of colour, I developed the brand Love & Nudes with love for my melanin sisters.

My team and I have developed a collection of modern intimates to compliment every woman's uniqueness - her skin tone! I want women of colour to explore and wear fashion anyway we choose to. Whether we want our undergarments to be discreet under sheer, lace and white clothing, or if we want to rock it out as an accessory to an outfit, the choice should be ours!

The brand, however, is not simply about underwear, but rather a means to create a global community designed to connect and share one another's individuality. We also work with conscious women in Colombia who are also all about empowering their communities by providing fair wages and working with factories that employ single mothers, giving them a chance to support their families in just working conditions.

It is with great excitement I bring you this brand Love & Nudes to celebrate diversity, women of colour and what makes them beautiful. I look forward to collaborating with influencers in the fashion, beauty and education industries to share stories, tips, and inspiration.
