Bamboo first Holt Renfrew keeps sharpening its edge. The retail chain, which gives great play to Canuck clothing labels, has gone one step further by bringing on a largely unknown Toronto designer.
His name is Jing Liu and if youâ€™ve never hear of him or his JUZD (pronounced joost) Bamboo streetwear collection, donâ€™tâ€™ be surprised. After all, he has never been trained in fashion design or cut his teeth at a design firm.
That, however, hasnâ€™t stopped Holts from taking the unusual step of bringing the newbie designerâ€™s graphic-laden garb-the worldâ€™s first designer bamboo label-to its high-end department stores.
The collection was delivered to Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver earlier this month. Check out Liuâ€™s work at: juzdbamboo.com
