Susan McGregor (http://www.charlieandgus.com)
The story of Charlie & Gus began in 2014 when owner, Susan McGregor, felt let down by the lack of comfy and modern lounge wear for her two sons, August and Charles. Girls had pink options and boys had blue. With a love of fabric, sewing, and modern childrens clothing, Susan took matters into her own hands and created a collection of fun unisex clothing that is far from pink and blue. Based out of Canada, but with strong South African roots, Charlie & Gus has become well known for their edgy Animal Collection and bold Fun Collection. The Charlie & Gus team work out of a small studio in Toronto where each and every garment is designed, cut, and sewn with love by local seamstresses.
