Alison Petrie, founder of The Alison Gordon Studio (AGS - 'Gordon' named after her father), has over 10 years of fashion industry experience. She is a passionate leader who has a knack for rendering complex visions into thoughtful, unique and business boosting designs. Her fundamental design understandings compliment her instincts in all matters of taste and panache. She combines originality and well-honed design skills in order to harness her signature timeless appeal.
Alison graduated from Parson’s School of Design with a AAS degree in Fashion Design, in 2008. While in New York, she has had the opportunity to work with internationally known designers (Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler and Pink Tartan). Upon returning to Toronto, Alison was awarded several creative design positions at established corporations including Flare Magazine, Holt Renfrew and NKPR. During her work tenure at NKPR, Alison provided creative direction for fashion and beauty brands, such as Tweezerman, Jones New York, Liu Jo, Jacqueline Piron, Zwilling, OGX, Rudsak, and Sears. Alison has also produced artwork for the popular children’s series Mimi & Chloe by author Imma Morcinelli-Hanna, and operated as a contributor to the satirical fiction, Forgotten Fashion, by Kate Hahn.
Alison launched The AGS Shop & Blog to share her love of fashion and art. The Shop offers a creative assortment of stationary and gallery art for any fashion lover. All pieces are produced in Canada, and made out of 100% recyclable paper. They are packaged with love and hope that her customers will get as much joy out of receiving it as she
had creating it.
In addition to the shop, AGS provides custom design and illustration services. Inspired and driven by fashion and industry trends, AGS cultivates its work through passion, innovation and personal dedication to each and every client.
