A Bitter Sweet Good Bye to an Iconic Corso Business

In 1995, Carmen’s Design opened it’s doors to fulfill a passion and love for sewing. With the creative inspiration to design memorable clothing for boys & girls to wear on important milestone celebrations – almost 30 years later this chapter is coming to a close.

Carmens’ hallmarks have always been a belief in high quality workmanship and one-of-a-kind designs. Whether a first communion dress, children’s bridal wear or baptism gowns – Carmen’s Designs are exclusive, elegant and sophisticated items inspired by clients and created by Carmen herself. This successful Corso Italia business leaves behind many satisfied customers across Toronto, the GTA, Mississauga, Hamilton, Markham, Brampton, Vaughan, Guelph, St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Oshawa and Whitby.

Make sure to visit the shop before the doors close for the last time. Corso Italia wishes Carmen the best for a well-deserved retirement!
