“Toronto is the perfect location to open our first international stores. It is a beautiful city filled with modern, sophisticated women who lead busy lives, and we are excited to bring a trusted fashion destination that offers great style as well as incredible versatility,” said head designer Lisa Axelson.

According to Brian Lynch, Ann Taylor brand president, Canada is a natural global jumping-off point because of the “strong awareness Ann Taylor already enjoys in Canada,” he said.
