OLESIA

Designer Olesia Lazovaia is the artisan behind all her garments. They are handmade in Canada. Designer, lawyer, economist, realtor, teacher and artist, her unconventional talent doesn't stop there. She has also studied computer science, accounting, photography, and make-up.

 

Olesia moved to Canada in 2014. Arriving from Russia, she spoke neither English nor French at the time. After settling in Canada, she returned to her former passion, fashion design. This gave birth to the La Kira line, which she launched in 2019. It didn't take long for her first customers to arrive, and her reputation was quickly established.

 

Olesia's interest in fashion began at an early age. Her very first garment was a skirt, which she sewed at the age of six from an old umbrella, carefully following the advice of her great-grandmother, who was a women's seamstress. The passion for fashion is rooted in family tradition. Her paternal grandfather was also a tailor, and she grew up watching her mother, herself a fashion designer, run a textile business.

 

Olesia's interest in fashion has always been present, and her other careers have never distracted her from her primary passion. It was finally in 2017 that Olesia gently returned to fashion design.

 

La Kira, her elegant casual line, is very personal to her. It is named after the first syllable of her last name and her daughter's first name, Kira. The modernity of family life is the source of inspiration for her creations, from elegant casual kid’s clothing and her main line, which are evening and couture pieces.

 

The brand began with made-to-order work, before expanding to online sales, consignment in boutiques and, most recently, La Kira offers its line in a boutique in Toronto's fashion district, the Holt Renfrew Centre on Bloor Street.

 

The Olesia Lazovaia and La Kira brands are increasingly present at major fashion shows.
