Our Story


ELLE MADE WELL is a seven year womenswear initiative based in Toronto, Canada, founded by Montreal Designer Ellé Marks. The brand first launched it's collection of several work wear basics, in 2011 from a studio apartment in Toronto's Midtown of Yonge and Eglinton. From there it didn't take long for women to share the news about tailored workwear. Ellé began taking daily orders for custom and bespoke garments for local women. As the brand continued to grow it became abundantly clear that the options for women's workwear were not easily accessible in comparison to the 150 all men's custom shops. With this exciting opportunity to launch an all women's custom tailor shop. Ellé resigned from her corporate position as Executive Director of NewSky Sustainable Commodities and reentered the familiar world of design & retail.  Ellé has since fully dedicated her time and resources to establish the launch of Elle Made Well. An All women's custom tailor shop mostly focused on workwear. By the end of 2012 Elle Made Well had launched it's first store and partnership in a 300sqft Forest Hill and then quickly expanded to a larger location in 2013. Elle Made Well Brand is currently available in Ellé & Company Boutique at 1166 Eglinton West.  By 2019 Elle Made Well had become among Toronto's first,  all women's custom & bespoke workwear and was featured in Toronto's LIFE magazine. 

We are proud to say that in 2019 Elle Made Well now provides easy accessible workwear options. Providing a wide range of workwear blazers, pants, skirts, dresses & evening-wear.  All of garments are available to be custom fit. Our prices are listed at prices that most women can invest in, we use fabrics that don’t harm the environment, and most importantly the people creating our clothes are deeply respected. 

Thank you for growing with us. We look forward to expanding with you.
