Artisans & Designers
Eclection shows the work of over 50 mainly local artisans and designers. Many collections are exclusive to our shop and work from cities all across Canada are featured in every seasonal collection.
If there is one thing you must know about Eclection, it’s that it never strays from its roots, regardless of the ever-changing display that is happening within its store. Eclection was established in 1985 by mother-daughter duo, Sue Scott and Khalia Scott. The boutique, which is now nestled inside the historic Byward Market Building, had its first beginnings in the Byward Market as an outdoor stand.
Since moving its vibrant collection of clothing and accessories, Election has maintained its dedication to its craft roots. Over the years, Eclection has served as a home for developing designers and craftspersons. Many of the designers have worked with Eclection since the business was established.
“It has been my pleasure to see designers grow and expand their craft through exposure and feedback from customers, staff, and other artists.” said proprietor Sue Scott.
The staff at Eclection are experts in craftsmanship and design because they are creators themselves. Each staff member is qualified to guide you through the gay profusion that echoes throughout the boutique. Sue and Khalia contribute to the store’s large collection of handmade items by way of hats and jewelry. Sue is the main hat designer and Khalia is the designer and creator of Cirque, a jewellery collection exclusive to Election. There is no shortage of passion in the studio.
Whether you are looking for a chic accent piece to accentuate your Monday work attire, or a funky hat to wear on a night out with your friends, Eclection has it. With artisans from Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Quebec, and other surrounding areas, Eclection offers a wide variety of choices for fashion lovers, seven days a week, year-round.
“Eclection is like your best friend with the biggest best closet ever, every trip is like a session of dress up for grownups.”
