Meet the Face Behind Carmen’s Designs

I’m Carmen Romao, the proud owner of Carmen’s Designs

I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

I’ve always had a passion for Children’s fashion, so I started a retail store in 1985. My children’s wear proved popular, and I soon opened two more retail and wholesale outlets. However, due to ups and downs in the economy, those two didn’t last long. So I kept working hard and looked for new growth opportunities.

In 1995, I decided to branch out into manufacturing children’s garments and launched Carmen’s Designs. My mission was to stitch exclusive clothing for boys and girls to wear on memorable milestones.

Over the past three decades, the industry has evolved significantly. The mass production companies in Asia and the explosion of the internet have contributed to different purchasing patterns, which have made the market more competitive.

To stay relevant, I’m always motivated to provide the best possible customer service while giving the client a sophisticated product that makes them proud to say, “it came from Carmen’s Designs.

While designing, I take inspiration from my clients, and as an individual, I believe what sets me apart is my honest feedback. I also treat clients equally regardless of their status or color, which has enhanced my integrity and contributed to my success.

As a result, it fills me with immense satisfaction each time a client tells me how I made the day special for their entire family. It’s also rewarding to create elegant attire for the kids of the kids I dressed in the 80s and 90s.

When I’m not crafting new clothes, I love to spend quality time with my grandkids and travel the world. I also support the Children’s hospital.

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things that matter to me and how they influence how I do business.

If you or someone you know could benefit from my expertise as the owner of an online clothing store for boys and girls in Toronto, I invite you to get in touch. Please visit my website at Carmen’s Designs.
