HILARY RADLEY FALL/WINTER 2014 STITCH NV LAS VEGAS
A Canadian success story of one who continues to inspire
Elegant. Dynamic. Energetic. Smart. Opinionated. Hilary Radley epitomizes the modern woman of today. As a successful designer who heads up the lifestyle fashion brand that bares her name, Hilary Radley has strived for and far-surpassed her life goals. From designing innovative clothing for 25 years, to single-handedly raising her son, to balancing work with play, Hilary is always ready for a challenge. Born in England, educated with a B.A. degree in Textiles, Hilary worked in costume design for broadcast television and as a fashion college lecturer before moving to Canada to begin her fashion design career. As an astute businesswoman and an artist who always pushed the boundaries of fashion design with revolutionary uses of textiles, Hilary quickly made a name for herself as ‘North America’s queen of Outerwear’ solidifying a place for her brand in the competitive global marketplace.
Always on the run, one can catch up with Hilary traveling the globe for new ideas, bustling between Montreal and Vermont where she spends family time with her husband in her self-designed and decorated country home, or travelling to Europe to ski with her son. She’s as comfortable climbing mountains – having reached the Uhuru peak of Mount Kilimanjaro – as she is playing tennis, decorating a friend’s apartment or reading a book
Out-spoken and involved, Hilary is active in supporting philanthropic organizations involving children and finding a cure for AIDS. She sits on the board of the Canadian Anti Malaria Coalition helping to raise awareness and funds for children in Africa. She is also a member of the advisory board for Y.E.S (Youth Employment Services) in Montreal.
Over the years, industry peers as well as the community, including Concordia University’s John H. Molson School of Business, have honored Hilary with numerous prestigious awards in recognition of outstanding contributions to the world of business and the community.
