Meet the Co-founders

Lindsey Wise
A graduate of the International Academy of Design, worked for a number of years in graphic design – as art director at several magazines and designing logos and packaging for high-profile clients – before shifting her focus onto fashion and finding success with her Mukluks Brand. Building a world wide company with her sister in a matter of months, Lindsey got Mukluks on the feet of fashionable women around the globe, including supermodel Kate Moss. From 2007 to today, Lindsey, a tireless mom of two, runs her label three/quarter, which attracts a lot attention with its chic coats and dresses. Working with partner Dilys Tong, Lindsey’s newest endeavour is Sew Be It Girl, a sewing studio that offers fun and funky classes to tweens and teens.

Dilys Tong
A graduate of both the University of Alberta’s Design and Textile Science Program and the International Academy of Design. Focusing largely on theatrical costuming, she has worked on production teams for The Lion King, Mamma mia, Hair Spray, and The Producers to name a few. She has also been recognized for her DIY (Do-It-Yourself) projects and sewing/business expertise by many media outlets including: Breakfast Television, CBC, and Toronto Star. In 2005, Dilys collaborated with a number of fellow artists and designers to create Sew Be It Studio in Toronto, and in 2009, she partnered with Lindsey Wise to open its sister location, Sew Be It Girl. Both studios offers classes and workshops to promote the art of sewing and fashion design – some of which are conducted by Dilys herself!
