Since 2010, Michelle Watson (a former competitive skier and ex-Ralph Lauren designer) has made a name for herself, and her cutting edge workout brand, in both the fitness and fashion industry.

With the edgy touch to her collection you can wear your work out gear from the gym to brunch. Price ranges from $80 to $300 and can be purchased through the MICHI online shop and Holt Renfrew.
Titika was founded in 2009 and the company is still based out of Toronto, Ontario.
