Toronto Designers Market is pleased to announce our 1 year anniversary is fast approaching! We would like to take this opportunity to thank all vendors past and present from the bottom of our hearts for helping get this business to where it is today after 1 short year. If it weren't for the original vendors and all the trial and error we did, we wouldn't have been able to provide this beautiful city with such a perfectly curated department store. We all owe a massive thank you to our store manager and saving grace Marcus Kan for ALWAYS being there when it came down to crunch time and of course our founder and CEO Joshua James, who had provided us with a bit of wisdom leading up to the end of this fabulous year. This is what he had to say.
"The best advice I can give a young designer and entrepreneur is be weird, fearless and believe in yourself. We've all grown up believing the most ridiculous things such as Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny, how hard can it really be to believe you're capable of achieving the things you desire in life? I know what rock bottom feels like, it's really not that bad, in fact I prefer it because the pressure goes away when you fail and the only place to go is back up, it's in my opinion, the most exciting place to be, so here's to rock bottom and everyone's passionate climb to the top".
