Wednesday October 21, 2015 – The first stop on our road show, Toronto, Canada.
This was an evening to celebrate, the debut of ZayZay, a vibrant new Canadian collection of limited-edition, 100% Egyptian cotton duvet covers and bed linens. Guests were invited to experience the product first-hand. Some went further and even got under the covers.
Thank you to those who came out to celebrate this special day with us!
It began with a Vision
For several years I have been pursuing an idea to produce a line of limited edition luxury duvet covers. I wanted to provide alternatives to the often bland or neutral options available in stores. This vision is now a reality. Together with my team, I have created these original designs and paintings to bring new energy and colour to our most private space - the bedroom.
