la closette teams up with Fashion Heals in support of SickKids 2016

This year, Fashion Heals is teaming up with la closette, Toronto’s leading fashion consultancy firm, to bring our attendees, a beautifully curated fashion show featuring models from SickKids Hospital and Foundation as well as past patients.

La closette’s fashion expertise and passion to make a difference, made them a perfect match for our team. The SickKids models walking in the fashion show have let la closette know their biggest fashion wishes, and la closette will be making those wishes happen for them on the Fashion Heals runway to take place on April 20, 2016!


At a serendipitous encounter at a university alumni event in 2011, MT Miekle and Irene Kim knew they were meant to join forces. Drawn to each other’s style and energy, MT’s energy and exuberance was the perfect counterpoint to Irene’s thoughtful approach.

The two come from unique and diverse backgrounds. Prior to la closette, Irene practiced as a securities lawyer while MT was a nurse specializing in public health, mental health and eating disorders which included a stint at SickKids.

With the growing demand from across Canada (and around the world!), MT and Irene are excited about launching their online style consulting service this spring.

“Personal styling is so personal. So much of it involves trusting your stylist. When our Toronto client texts their friend in Vancouver about her amazing outfit, that friend now can work with us seamlessly online,” says Irene.

Their client’s paths to where they are today, makes la closette particularly special. For their clients, it’s the avenue through which they live out their life’s work: helping men and women reflect their best through their fashion and style choices.
