Ocean Avenue is a casual lifestyle brand that offers women’s clothing and accessories inspired by the beach and the outdoors. Julianna graduated from the Fashion Design program at Ryerson University and learned how to make handmade jewellery. She travelled to the west coast where she enjoyed making jewellery on the beach. Influenced by the casual style she sought comfort over fashion. After moving home, Julianna started her own business designing clothing and making handmade jewellery full-time. She wanted to create clothing that is comfortable, affordable and stylish. She chooses renewable materials and eco-friendly textiles when possible and all items are handmade, or locally produced here in Canada.
