Quand le Girlpower mène un mouvement de sacs véganes

Mélissa Lambert est une femme de tête et de convictions qui, ne trouvant pas le produit de ses rêves sur le marché, a décidé de lancer sa propre marque de sacs à dos et sacs à main. Avec plus de 10 ans d’expérience en communication et en gestion de marque, Mélissa a voulu se lancer un nouveau défi; celui de réinventer la mode du sac à dos. Étant convaincue qu’il est possible d’allier confort avec élégance, l’entrepreneur lance sa marque de sac en cuir végane, certifié Peta en 2017. Lambert est issu d’une histoire d’amour entre la maternité et l’envie de changer le monde, un achat consciencieux à la fois. C’est lorsqu’elle attendait son 3ème enfant que Mélissa eut l’idée de lancer son entreprise, avec le rêve d’un modèle d’affaires responsable, écologique et du slow fashion.

Tyler McCombs Founder of Devon + Lang, is bringing better pouch boxers to the market!

Devon + Lang was founded by Tyler and Dayna McCombs in 2019, but the idea for better boxers began much earlier. During an uncomfortable walk in the Hawaiian heat, Tyler decided that he was done with buying boxers that easily ripped and chafed his legs. After searching for the perfect pair, he came up empty and decided to make a better pouch boxer than what was on the market. After over a year of working with professional designers and engineers, Devon + Lang was born.

Jake Robitaille, CMO of MNTN, was born and raised in Europe but has been living in Montreal for a little over a decade.
