Hannah Isolde—the namesake of owner and designer Hannah Isolde Goodman—was founded in May of 2018 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is an independent slow-fashion womenswear brand that celebrates the craftsmanship and stories behind the handmade. The company aims to create connection and narrative between the maker, the garment, and the wearer. It is with this consideration and ethos that clothing will take its rightful standing in our lives as something to be cherished for decades rather than bought impulsively, worn once and left to be forgotten.
Hannah Isolde clothing is meticulously handcrafted by the designer in her studio space in Montreal’s Mile Ex neighbourhood. Each piece is dreamed, drafted, graded, cut, sewn, pressed and packaged under the same roof by the same person. Far from the traditional factory line methods of garment production, slowing down in this manner gives each Hannah Isolde piece the love, attention, and morality it deserves.
