The first time I shared that our landlord had wrongfully locked us out of our Toronto showroom, I felt naked. I am used to being vulnerable but I had never opened up about business challenges before. I felt I had just done a photoshoot naked and invited everyone to see it! I wanted to keep it private, which comes naturally to me being an immensely private person, but I also wanted to share it because you deserved to know.

On the evening of Wednesday April 20th we hosted a very special Zvelle In Conversation with my dear friend, mentor and shoe legend Joe Foster, Founder of Reebok and author of 'Shoemaker'. I was so proud to have Joe in our Toronto showroom and share this memorable experience with our customers and friends. My deepest gratitude to Joe and his wife Julie for visiting Toronto exclusively for us.
