Founded in Quebec in 2015 by Andréanne Marquis, the Womance online store offers a variety of fashionable clothing and other products for everyday life. Womance is passionate about supporting local artists and creators, and is proud to offer a wide range of items created either by us or by other Quebec companies. At Womance, we create and find quality items that are both trendy and comfortable and make them available to you at an affordable price. We strive to support the wellbeing of today’s woman by offering her what she really needs. Inclusion, passion, attentiveness and goodwill are at the heart of our core values. Womance has come a long way since its creation! We were one of the first Quebec companies to explore the concept of pop-up stores across Quebec. From Rimouski to Gatineau, we travelled to meet you so that today we could be well established online. We now also have two permanent stores: our signature store is located at our head office in Quebec City, and a second at
Galeries de la Capitale.
Since September 2020, all of our collections have been imagined and designed by us, here in the magnificent region of Quebec, in Canada. Prior to that time, Womance had always been a clothing distribution company. Year after year, we found trendy clothes and accessories from all over the world to make available to our loyal customers. Five years after the creation of Womance, we have are now proud to be able to offer clothing developed from our own line!
For the creation of this line, we wanted to collaborate with the best in the industry in order to
be able to offer products that meet our high standards and expectations. We work with various
Quebec, Canadian and European partners who we select not only for their expertise and passion, but also for their ethical and ecological values which correspond to ours. Our partners support us in determining the best fashion trends and in finding the most beautiful materials to create with.
It is very important to us that all clothing is made ethically. In order to choose our factories, we drew up a list of work standards to be respected which had to be similar to those in Canada. In addition, throughout production, we have line inspectors who help to ensure compliance with these set standards over time. Our suppliers located in Asia have certifications such as BSCI and SEDEX. We are currently working to establish partnerships with various manufacturers that have Fairtrade Canada certification. This certification has a strong impact on labour standards as well as on the environment. Our various partners and factories are located in Canada, Italy, Poland, Asia and Indonesia.
Entrepreneur Andréanne Marquis founded Womance in 2015 with no prior experience in the field. Her one and only goal was to provide women with comfortable and trendy clothes at an affordable price, and she wanted to do it while offering impeccable service and quick delivery. After more than six years, Andréanne's vision of retail and online sales has not changed. The simple idea that she believed would create a part-job for herself has now exploded into much, much more.
With our passionate designers, buyers on the lookout for trends, store and service advisors listening to you seven days a week, as well as a large warehouse team that prepares your packages in less than 24 hours, Womance now has 50 dedicated employees.
