Classic dress shape in environmentally sustainable tencel, what a combination! Our structured Grace dress hangs slightly below the knee with soft pleats in the front and back. It features an invisible back zipper and inset pockets. A beautiful V dart detail in the front of the fitted bodice makes this a unique take on a classic shape. We added short sleeves to this dress so that it can be worn all year long!

Lyocell is a sustainable fiber, regenerated from wood cellulose. It uses a closed loop system of production that has a minimal impact on the environment. Lyocell is wrinkle resistant, simulates silk, suede or leather to touch.
Lyocell helps regulate body temperature and has inherent anti-bacterial properties which allows garments to stay odour-free for longer and allows for multiple wears before each wash.Lyocell fabric is extremely soft, anti-static and anti-bacterial. When blended with other fibers, it increases their tenacity and durability. In addition, it is biodegradable and requires less dye than cotton.
When asked if we would ever have our clothing made overseas, we categorically said no. In the beginning, Jennifer made everything by hand in the back of her shop, loving the contact with clients and refining her skills. Now that the business has grown, we’re proud to say that Jennifer Glasgow clothing is still made right here in Montreal! Our close knit circle of factories are all woman-owned. Chenda, Sina and Miu, with their teams, have produced every stitch for over 10 years. Keeping our production in Canada helps us control the quality of our goods and reduces our carbon footprint.
