Brian Bailey - Mentor

Brian Bailey, internationally renowned fashion designer, reprises his role as Mentor to the designers in the second season of Project Runway Canada. Brian Bailey is in the master class of Canadian fashion designers. Celebrated for his sophisticated, urban sportswear collections and all-out glamorous evening wear, he has also earned accolades as an innovator and motivator in his commitment to, and promotion of, Canadian fashion and talent. An industry leader and style maker, Bailey’s legion of fans run the gamut of fashion editors, international celebrities and Canadian women from coast-to-coast.

Since launching his eponymous women’s sportswear collection in 1992, Bailey has continued to strive to create contemporary designs for the wardrobe needs of today’s women. Impeccable tailoring and his use of fabrications that flatter the female form are hallmarks of his style. Not shy to cater to the needs of all women, Bailey was the first Canadian designer to create collections in both regular and plus sizes. His collections have sold in his two Toronto boutiques as well as fine department stores internationally.

Brian is currently working on very exciting design projects which include: a complete uniform re-design for WestJet Airlines; a cosmetic line; and a fantastic clothing collection which will be part of his new online shopping site.
