Driven by Grayes

Drive. That innate, undeniable desire to forge forward. Where does it come from? And where does it bring us? We tapped four of Toronto’s most successful women to create a capsule collection that would not only benefit the wardrobes of working women, but also the causes close to their hearts. Drawing on inspiration from their careers, the women each collaborated with our design team to create the perfect piece of workwear. The result: four distinct garments designed to drive you through your day. With each piece comes a sliver of experience from its creator, whether it’s a versatile blazer made for modern offices or a dress flexible enough to last through every last engagement. Best of all, the collection comes full circle, with a portion of the proceeds from the collection being donated to the charity of their choice.

Elena Mayer

Elena Mayer
Senior Manager, PwC and President & CEO, Women Who Rock

Elena Mayer doesn’t mind standing out. And with an explosive career in the male-dominated mining industry, it’s a good thing. Instead of assimilating to the masculine overture, she embraces femininity, and the value women bring to the workplace. As Founder of Women Who Rock, Elena has made it her business to support women moving into skilled trades. Inspired by the hues of her career, the Elena Dress is certainly a statement, gem-toned and bold.

Kirstine Stewart
President & CRO, TribalScale

For Kirstine Stewart, no venture is off-limits. Named to Maclean’s list of powerful Canadians, Kirstine has made major career moves look simple. She made her way through the highest ranks of media before diving into tech, first as VP at Twitter Canada and most recently as CRO & President of Canada’s top innovator, TribalScale. Accustomed to a casual dress code, she designed the Kirstine Blazer to pair just as well dressed up or down. The blazer benefits Move the Dial, an organization devoted to the advancement of women in tech.

Laura McGee

Laura McGee
Founder & CEO of Diversio

Laura McGee’s career has been nothing short of stellar. Between her high-profile position in consulting and her latest role as Founder and CEO of Diversio, she still finds time for her two charitable initiatives, Summit Leaders and #GoSponsorHer, a social media movement that champions high-potential women. Craving something as stylish as it is comfortable, she designed the Laura Dress for multi-hyphenates like her. Ever committed to the community, the dress will benefit Summit Leaders, Laura’s own not-for-profit organization fostering interest in business and entrepreneurship among Canadian youth.

Michelle Khalili
Managing Director, Private Capital, Investment Banking

Michelle Khalili knows that success is no coincidence. As the recipient of the Women in Capital Markets Award, she has spent the last 15 years blazing her own trail in equity markets, corporate finance and investment banking. A classic staple, the Michelle Dress can be styled in any direction, whether you keep it simple or opt to accessorize. A portion of the proceeds from the Michelle Dress will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society, Canada’s foremost organization devoted to those living with and affected by cancer.
