About Us

Hi, I'm Carmen!

In 1995, my passion and love for sewing and design propelled me to start Carmen’s Designs. And here I am, in the Children’s and Ladies’ Wear  business for over 20 years.

My passion is designing memorable clothing for boys & girls to wear on important milestone celebrations.

I believe in high quality workmanship and one-of-a-kind designs, so what you will find at Carmen’s Designs are exclusive, elegant and sophisticated designs inspired by you and created by me.

Plus, the most beautiful ready-made designs from the latest designer clothing from Rome, Paris, New York, Canada and other fashion centres around the world. A few of the brands we carry are Teter Warm, Tip Top Kids, Jolene, Alex Evenings, and Froddo Shoes.

Special Occasion Outfits

Special occasions deserve a special outfit! One of my secrets when designing a new gown or suit is in the fabrics I choose. 

I only use high quality fabrics, such as:

  • Organza
  • Silk
  • French Lace
  • Tulle
  • Linen
  • Cotton

Designed and Handmade in house

Everything is handmade right here at our location. We have a sewing studio where all the sketching, pattern-making, sewing and finishing is done. It’s where all the magic happens!



How It Works

Visit the store

Come see us at the store to discuss your design ideas and take the measurements to start the production right away.

Do a fitting

Next, it’s time to do a fitting. We want to see how the dress or suit feels on the body, and then make any adjustments left before the delivery date. 

Pick up

Your design is ready! Come pick it up at the store, and have fun wearing it! Don’t forget to tag us #CarmensDesigns on your photos!

Client testimonial

"We visited Carmens today after visiting way too many dress shops for a communion dress for my princess.... We found a great selection here with a variety of price points - amazing accessories also. Sales girls were super helpful but not pushy! Finally she said YES to the dress with a one of a kind in house made Carmen gown! Super happy would recommend to anyone!"
