After graduating from fashion design school, Paola, alongside her mother, Elsa, opened Paola Di in 1985. What started in a small space in Woodbridge, the two began selling their own designs, as well as, couture wedding and evening dresses. By 1989 the business grew and the store moved to the now Yonge St. location. There they began selling ready to wear clothing from Europe, US and Canadian Designers.
30 plus years later, Paola is still here. Hand picking interesting pieces from a vast selection of lines, keeps the store unique and filled with hidden treasures. Paola Di carries everything from denim and t-shrits to blazers and day dresses. An assortment of accessories and shoes, as well as, handbags and totes.
The store attributes their success to the personal customer service they give to each of their clients, putting together outfits that are appropriate and on the cutting edge of fashion.
