In 1964 Claire Haddad began designing ‘at home’ fashions – a chic way of dressing that was more formal than lingerie. Her influences ranged from Middle Eastern caftans and mediaeval tunics to mod body stockings and belly dancer costumes. Her label met with success and Claire received several Judy and Edee (Ontario and Canadian fashion industry) awards, as well as sharing an honour in 1967 with raincoat designer Lydia Sperlich, in receiving the first Coty award for Canadian achievements in fashion. Coty dropped the category the next year, so Haddad and Sperlich were the only recipients to ever receive a Canadian Coty. In 1985 Claire, and her husband/business partner Albert, closed the business, and a few years later the archives were donated to the Seneca College Fashion Resource Centre. For more information about Claire Haddad, check out the website recently created by her family.
