Born and raised in Kelowna, British Columbia, a region where only a handful of people understand the depth and art of couture fashion, Wendy Schindler took her dream and dresses to the big city and found herself in the Fashion Design program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Vancouver. “Couture fashion is a dying art, and what people don’t quite understand is that a couture dress is more than just an outfit, it’s a masterpiece”-Wendy Schindler.
Having gone through Montessori school in her adolescence, Schindler from a young age has been a ‘hands on’ kind of gal, and this is what she thinks triggered her creative mind. Throughout her years in university and different projects, Schindler relates back to historical fashion and the works of her favourite designers to create her own unique pieces for the runway. With her love of handwork and quality production, Wendy is dedicated to preserving couture fashion. Her interest in craftsmanship stems from her artistic view point on design, evident in her unique pieces.
