Winner: Atelier by Ensemble

Atelier by Ensemble provides handmade, bespoke garments, designed in Calgary. Founder Lauren Larsen has a background in menswear and launched Atelier in 2016 as an off-shoot of her personal styling and shopping business, Ensemble Style. Larsen originally meant to serve only her existing clientele, but Atelier’s reputation for quality and service spread through word-of-mouth referrals. Now, with hundreds of clients across Calgary, Vancouver, Kelowna, Toronto, Seattle and New York, Larsen says she prioritizes timelessness, longevity and individual personality over trends when designing a custom suit. “Honestly getting to know [a client] and understanding them as a person is the most important thing,” she says. To date, Atelier has produced around 2,000 suits using fabrics from prestigious Italian and English mills, including the historic Italian mill Vitale Barberis Canonico, established in 1663. The process to get a custom-tailored suit from Larsen averages around four weeks. —T.A.
