We have just put out our fresh new spring collection of Eric Alexandre – one of our top selling lines for spring. This Quebec based brand is designed for the confident woman who, now in her thirties, wishes to project an image of easy-going class. Our customers rave about our mid-priced collection, consisting mainly of basic sustainable, practical items, enhanced with exclusive details and available at great prices.

Kollontaï is the fashion label of Gabrielle Tousignant and a workshop employing over twenty people who share a passion for made-in-Canada fashion apparel! From the first creative impulse to the final stitch, all stages of the design and manufacturing process take place in their Montréal-based workshop. Each one of the garments combines uniqueness, aesthetic appeal, comfort, and quality. The rich interplay of colors, textures, transparencies and lace create a distinctive style inspired by lingerie. I see strong shades of Moulin Rouge!


State of the art design and state of the art manufacturing – this fabulous knitwear line from Germany has now arrived at Aphrodite.


Trying on some Kooi and loving it! Come try it too!

Design knows no bounds this Wedding Season!

That was clearly demonstrated the other night when Trudy Gallagher arrived at Aphrodite with her Bejewel collection of handmade jewellery ready to adorn our models for the most amazing spring fashion show that we put on for all of our customers and readers. Click on our slide show and you’ll get a glimpse of the visual phantasmagoria we ll experienced. Next time try to be there too.

Among our models was Marsha Voica from Pictou County who the previous night delivered a foal on the horse farm she shares with her husband. What a difference a day makes! Our newest guest model was Norma Jean MacDonald from Antigonish who just rocked our dresses! They were joined by our own Laura Donnachie, Cori MacInnis and…. after five weeks away on holiday, Mary Connelly came back to the runway. We chose some of our best dresses for the most special of events for this occasion. The models walked up unadorned to the Bejewel display and from there Trudy selected the jewellery that was most complimentary to the dress. In one case she gave us a few options and allowed the audience to choose their favourite. What started out as a great dress was turned into a sensational look that would have cut it on any red carpet. Right now our selection is resplendent with gorgeous fashions and a great selection of Bejewel designs. Come in and try them on! Be a princess for a day! Or should I say….. Find that Goddess in you!
