Paul Hardy

Canadian born and based, Paul Hardy took his career from design school graduate to personal shopper to acclaimed designer. Officially, Paul Hardy began his design career in 2002 with an opening show at Toronto Fashion Week where his first collection saw a host of rave reviews declaring, "a star is born". After seeing that first collection, fashion icon Jeanne Beker, host of Fashion Television and now editor of FQ Magazine, described Hardy's talent as being that of the likes of Marc Jacobs or Stella McCartney. The sensation caused by his first collection led Hardy to pursue opportunities south of the border at Los Angeles Fashion Week. There he garnered the attention of notable industry media types like WWD who described Hardy's style as "a thoughtful, well-made collection of soft sophisticated clothes". Such reviews about the line sent a buzz across the United States to New York, where Hardy unveiled his third season for Spring/Summer 2004. Feted with a party hosted by Canadian Consulate General Pamela Wallin, Hardy's Manhattan debut garnered attention from Fern Mallis, President of the CFDA. As a result, 7th on Sixth invited him to show in the tents at Bryant Park the following season. Hardy's Fall 2004 show was attended in large numbers and hailed as being his 'best work yet'. Some of his designs were described as "Oscar worthy" by celebrity stylist Philip Bloch and the New York Post, and Flare magazine has described him as one of the freshest new talents emerging from North of the border.
Deriving from a lineage of bankers, Hardy has a solid business mind and group of advisors that provide a sure footing for an optimistic future. He is currently pursing retail opportunities in the US, and the Paul Hardy collection is carried exclusively by Holt Renfrew in Canada.
