MODE is Toronto based fashion accessories company that was founded in 2015.
The idea of MODE was inspired with over fifteen years of personal design and craftsmanship experience combined with cutting edge digital fabrication methods that allow the unique fashion accessories of artisan quality to be available for the masses.
MODE’s products are unique bags and accessories for women and men that can help to express their personality through the series of easily interchangeable parts for each bag. They transform the look of the bag, extend its lifespan and are co-designed with the customer to fit any of his/her outfits. MODE’s customers are also provided with choice of the material, texture and color they would like their bag to be.
Each product is designed and made in MODE’s existing facility in the heart of Toronto’s Kensington Market using laser-cutting technology.
Our team is widely exposed to the variety of design and fabrication methods. MODE’s chief designer Evgenia Filipenko inherited experience in the design industry from the family of craftsmen and artists. She also received formal architectural training, as well as adopted hands-on creative hobbies, including the process of designing and making handbags as well as fashion accessories. MODE is a partner of FARE MADE Toronto Laser Cutting and Fabrication Centre, which already owns and operates high precision fabrication equipment. The idea to combine digitally-driven fabrication with hand-made artisan quality came natural, especially since this equipment is specifically designed for personalization. MODE was conceived as an innovative fashion label that provides personalized fashion accessories of artisan quality and haute couture design.
