The tag. This trivial and unloved part of clothing, too often ignored when not carelessly cut off. But even though they can be annoying at times, tags carry valuable information and are worth a second look.
At Station Service, we believe that every piece of clothing has a story to tell. It begins for example in a faraway land's cotton field, testifying to the work of farmers, artisans, designers, and seamstresses. When some chapters remain fuzzy, the tag always reveals essential details.
Station Service's wardrobe brings together Montreal-made pieces whose tags all reveal the same thing: that local know-how and talent are incomparable.
"Yes, fast-fashion answers to our desire for change and novelty. But this consumption mode of has a terrible environmental and social impact. By taking an interest in local fashion, I understood what it was like to wear a quality piece, designed with passion and made with care. So I started dreaming of an eco-responsible wardrobe, accessible to all and in constant evolution. That's why I created Station Service."
- Raphaëlle, founder of Station Service

The idea of creating a blog was a natural outlet, a spontaneous extension of Station Service. Moreover, while brainstorming on the different blog sections we wanted to create, we realized that they corresponded to our three entrepreneurial missions. A nice coincidence, isn't it? Here are the themes that will be addressed here:
In Local Fashion - Mission promote local creators
TheIn Local Fashion section will present various portraits of Québécois, whether they are designers, entrepreneurs, or simply sources of inspiration.
Footprint - Mission reduce our ecological footprint
In the Footprint section you will of course hear about pro-environmental initiatives, in addition to other social issues related to the textile and fashion industry.
Ready-to-wear - Mission follow trends intelligently
Finally, with our beautiful selection of pieces to rent, the Ready-to-wear section will make you discover the rental of clothing as proposed by Station Service.
In short, we want to build a space where we can educate and inspire each other, a page where transparency and creativity can be brought together.
We'll be in touch with you weekly - and we highly recommend that you stay tuned for our next article: it will be signed by our talented ambassador, Rose-Aimée Automne T. Morin!
