TIZZ & TONIC - Back to Basics SBP
Hey, I'm Imke.
I’m the lead designer and creative director of Tizz & Tonic. I've been working in clothing construction for half my life, launching my first successful e-commerce brand at a young and ambitious age of 15 and showcasing two collections at Toronto's Alternative Fashion Week. I’m an Alumni of George Brown College where I completed my studies in Fashion Techniques and Design in Toronto, Canada.
My design style is creating beauty in eye-catching but simple ways- I appreciate looks that are elevated and joyful but not overly complex which is why you'll notice the aesthetic of Tizz & Tonic to be just that - bold basics with a twist.
Hey, I'm Yanna.
I guess I am the non-fashionista on the Tizz & Tonic Team.
My contribution to the brand has a big focus on sustainability. My educational background is a bachelor's degree in biology, sparked from a particular scuba dive when a juvenile sea turtle almost bit me on the nose. Seeing this magical little sea turtle fascinated me and I instantly knew that I wanted to do something that would help this ancient species and the ecosystem that they live in. Little did I know this would bring me into the fashion circle.
Pairing up with Imke, I believe her eye for design and my passion for the environment make us a pretty cool little team and believe the future of fashion should have both of these aspects incorporated.
