When you start something new you can’t be afraid to take chances. Taylor Byrom, a graduate from Kwantlen Polytechnic University Fashion Design and Technology degree program uses her personal experiences to fuel her passion to make things right. “I don’t believe that anyone who struggles with healthcare needs should have to worry about their clothes and when we’re talking about kids – they need to stand out for their personality and not their illness.”
At eight years old Byrom was designing clothing for paper doll cutouts, by high school she had begun to learn to sew and her love of fashion grew. Volunteering with organizations like Canuck Place and BC Children’s Hospital have deepened Byrom’s empathy for children and families who deal with complex care needs every day.
jolie hart, named after her grandmother, and victory hart, named for her father, are designed with function, style and wellness at top of mind.
Whimsical design, playful patterns and functional concepts mean kids can just be kids.
Recently Byrom was awarded the Surrey Board of Trade Top 25 Under 25 Award & The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
