Canadian born and based, Paul Hardy took his career from design school graduate to personal shopper to acclaimed designer. Paul Hardy began his design career in 2002 with an opening show at Toronto Fashion Week where his first collection saw a host of rave reviews. After seeing his first collection, fashion icon Jeanne Becker, host of Fashion Television, compared Hardy’s talent as being that of the likes of Marc Jacobs or Stella McCartney.
The sensation caused by his first collection led Paul to pursue opportunities south of the border at Los Angeles Fashion Week. There he garnered the attention of notable industry media outlets such as WWD who described Paul’s style as “a thoughtful, well-made collection of soft sophisticated clothes.” Such reviews about the line sent a buzz across the United States to New York. His designs have been described as “Oscar worthy” by celebrity stylist Philip Bloch and the New York Post. Acclaim for Paul’s collections has continued over the seasons, Lisa Tant, editor of Flare Magazine, was quoted saying “He has vision and he’s achieved it at every step”.
In 2011, Paul began experimenting with lifestyle branding by taking on commissions pertaining to interior design. He also accepted an offer to collaborate with the Alberta Ballet, by designing all of the costumes for Sarah McLachlan’s ‘Fumbling towards Ecstasy Ballet’. The ballet received rave reviews from both the media and public and now has plans to tour this coming year.
Paul was honoured to be selected as one of six international emerging designers to go and showcase his upcoming Spring 2012 collection on a seven city tour in China.
In 2012, The Heart Truth® marks a decade of commitment to women's heart health. Starting with February's American Heart Month and throughout the year, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) reaffirms its commitment to increasing awareness about heart disease among women and helping women take steps to reduce their own personal risk of developing heart disease.
