Colleen Poitras is known for using unconventional materials in her unique fashion jewellery collection. Her original style developed through growing up with a seamstress mother and being exposed to a variety of designers at a young age. This cultivated an appreciation of fashion in its many forms. Colleen studied Jewellery Arts at George Brown College and The Mississauga Centre for the Arts. This furthered her love for designing and gave confidence and a voice to what is known as a very distinctive and original jewellery and accessories line.
