an innovative design
house and fashion
We're about individual style.
We're obsessed with quality.
And we think shopping should be fun.
It's nice to meet you.
In the beginning
The Hill family started Aritzia inside their 70-year-old department store in Vancouver. When Brian Hill opened the first standalone boutique in 1984, the idea was simple: offer beautiful clothes in aspirational spaces with exceptional service. Women seemed to like what we were doing, so we grew. And we've kept on growing ever since.
And the perfect mix.
We develop our own brands, treating each as an independent label with its own creative team and aesthetic. As a group, they have a few things in common: an effortless appeal, a focus on fit and an of-the-moment point of view.
We sweat the small stuff. It's why we search out the best mills and factories around the world. It's why we consider (and reconsider) every last seam, pleat and button. It's why our clothes look and feel so good.
We round out our selection with pieces from brands we love – ones who obsess about craftsmanship and design as much as we do.
We don't do cookie-cutter.
Our architects and designers consider each boutique individually, creating a bespoke mix of local influences, natural materials, custom furniture and art.
A love of art runs deep at Aritzia, and we pepper our stores with original paintings, sculpture and prints. Even our shopping bags serve as a canvas for creative expression.
