Hilary MacMillan is a fashion-forward lifestyle brand based in Toronto, Canada. The eponymous brand was founded in 2013 and is renowned for offering ready-to-wear styles in sizes XS-4X, home, swim, lounge and accessories. With a focus on using high-quality, cruelty-free materials in bold colours and exceptional textures.
At Hilary MacMillan every collection is designed, developed and sampled in-house at our Toronto based studio. Each season our Canadian design team ensures our products meet brand standards, allowing us to seek seasonal manufacturing. Currently, we split manufacturing between Canada and China. Every product sold and produced is labelled, and all those Made in Canada are marked as such. All our off-shore Chinese production takes place in two factories which we have worked hard to build strong relationships with. We only produce with manufacturers aligned with our standards, and with those which are transparent about their processes. The factories we work with in China must qualify for the SA8000 Standard certification, be Bureau Veritas certified, be audited yearly, and be available for site visits. At Hilary MacMillan, we try to be as transparent as possible about our process. If you have any questions please email us at email@example.com and we will be more than happy to answer any and all questions you may have.
Many people ask - How do you give back? We are here to answer any of your questions and please do email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get any additional information.
15% of proceeds from every sale of our Varsity Jacket Collection goes towards Toronto based charities Up With Women & Black Women in Motion
Black Women In Motion is an incredible organization which through their Employment & Training initiative supports the BYEAP youth program. This program seeks to address unemployment and underemployment for Black/Afro-diasporic/Afro-Caribbean youth. The issue of employment sustainability is one of the factors related to inequity of pay, a matter which greatly fractures communities and remains a social injustice long embedded in our economy. Working to address this affects the lives of women, men and most importantly our youth; our future. We recognize that this is not enough, and look forward to committing our words and actions to this initiative, hopeful these are steps will lead to opportunity and positive change.

Up With Women is a growing registered charity dedicated to helping recently homeless and at-risk women build sustainable, prosperous careers and businesses with the aim of permanently exiting poverty. Up With Women clients undergo a year-long intensive program of career and entrepreneurship-based one-on-one customized coaching, in-depth personality and emotional assessment tools, group-support sessions, and soft-skills development. Up With Women tackles an urgent issue in Canada, which as studies suggest, is getting worse. An estimated 200,000 Canadians experience homelessness in any given year. (Canadian Homelessness Research Network, 2013). The same study found that one and half million households are at risk of becoming homeless. What’s more, families are disproportionally affected. The latest research found that shelter use among children and youth in Canada is up by 50 percent (Raising the Roof, 2016). Incidences of violence are overrepresented among women and youth who have experienced homelessness. One of the largest studies to date (Browne & Bassuk, 1997) found that 92% of a diverse sample of homeless mothers had experienced severe physical abuse and/or violence. The cycle of homelessness and poverty can be extraordinarily difficult to escape. Up With Women gives the skills and opportunities to break the cycle. We encourage you to visit their website and learn more about this amazing charity (https://upwithwomen.org.)
A portion of sales of Pride Masks for the month of June is donated to The 519 Community Centre. Their work, resources, support and space for the LGBTQIAP2S communities is incredible and our neighbourhood would be lost without them. With Pride events being virtual this year, it's a huge part of their funding that has disappeared, if you wish to donate you can learn more here
To mark IWD on Tuesday March 8, 2022, proceeds from all sales will go directly to the Ukrainian Women’s Fund, an organization which supports various women’s and feminist organizations and their participation in powerful and effective action which directly protects women’s rights and gender equality in Ukraine.
