Pascal Labelle

By: Natalie Rose Servello

Self-expression and artistic endeavours have overpowered the fashion industry thus far. Fashion is no longer regimented and style is undefined; neither can flourish independently in the industry without the important component of diversity. With this, Pascal Labelle, fashion designer, tailor and human self-expresser is becoming a trailblazer in the fashion industry. Focused on custom craftsmanship, Pascal’s designs are inspired by the stories, experiences and the lifestyles of the people who wear his garments. There are no boundaries, “from high powered career professionals to the real-life rock star”, Pascal is absorbed by elements of a diverse clientele.

Canadian born and raised, Labelle has changed the Canadian fashion market in ways to which others only aspire. He began tailor-making exclusive coats in 2005 – creating coats that fit more than just the physical customary elements to which society often conforms, when referring to tailor making. Labelle takes tailor-making to a uniquely personal level of design,

“I’m creating original coats to fit the characteristics and persons who wear them.”

In 2017, Labelle expanded his passion and launched Pascal Labelle, a brand of coats available online. This was driven by his uncontrollable desire to offer the art of creation and self-expression to a wider market.

United by Difference, these three words are crucial to Labelle and the values his brand represents. Seeking diversity in all its forms is Labelle’s daily mission when deciphering elements of design to incorporate in his works. As a young child, fashion was always a key attraction in Labelle’s life, “For me dressing was a way to express myself. So, creation was a way to express my mind.” Today, Labelle creates the most elite contemporary pieces, mixing raw materials and innumerable style techniques that cohesively answer to the diversified needs of the brands clientele.

In correlation with Labelle’s diversified elements of his brand, he refuses to stray from the qualities of authenticity and timelessness when defining himself as an artist. With each collection so distinctly separate and unique from the other, Labelle undeniably discovers additional ways to surpass client expectations. In the past, the brand has collaborated with painter RIO, where exclusive pieces were created mixing Czech crystal, hematite, quartz and 18-carat gold leaves. The Ferrari of coat collections, its creativity expands beyond what is imaginable. Labelle’s creativity inflates further, even beyond mixing embellishments. He incorporates leathers, fur, cashmere and the latest, 100% genuine python skin. Although one of his most difficult pieces to create, it has surpassed his own expectations as a designer.

As the fashion industry becomes diversified, the notion of sustainability has gained prominence. Labelle’s proudest creations are made with recycled fur. When beginning his career in 2005, Labelle was only using recycled furs. He has since carried this element of his work into his Pascal Labelle brand. The use of recycled fur, leather and natural fibers lessens the brands negative impact on the environment. Labelle ensures he is constantly aware of his carbon footprint, “to contribute to a healthy earth is one of the main brand focuses.” Essentially, Labelle’s brand has targeted the main areas of concern for modern day fashion enthusiasts, proving he will embark on a future of undeniable success.

Being a designer is more than a career choice for Labelle; he creates with passion, choosing to discover unity through the difference amongst society. In addition to the brand Labelle has already established, there is talk about an expansion into a collection of shoes and accessories. There is no limit to his goals as an incomparable artist and there is certainly no lack of inspiration. “My vision and designs are influenced by the need to stay authentic; authentic to oneself, to its values and to its beliefs.” With this, Pascal Labelle brand is just beginning.
