Lisa Drader-Murphy designs and produces seasonal collections of fashion and accessories that are of the moment yet enduring and classic in quality and expression of timeless design, all from her 250-year-old sea captain’s estate in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley. Willow Vale Estate, co-managed by her husband, Carey Murphy, also operates as a 5 star boutique resort, boasting multiple spa amenities.
Her label has received extensive international coverage including CNN, New York Times, Entertainment Tonight, BFM Europe, NRJ France, European Vogue, Cosmo, Flare, ELLE, CTV, CBC, SLICE, Canadian Learning Television, Global TV, and has been seen on runways across Canada. Jennifer Love Hewitt, Missi Pyle, Linda Cardellini, and Michelle Rodriguez are among the many celebrities who have selected Turbine for their wardrobes. Turbine has been invited to present at celebrity gifting suites during the Toronto International Film Festival, Golden Globes, Oscars, and the Cannes Film Festival and their signature leather handbags have been spotted on the red carpet.
Established in 1997, Drader-Murphy’s design house is unique in that it is one of few vertical fashion companies remaining in Canada. Her collections are sold exclusively at her 5 privately held retail locations and online.
