Collection: The Harriet Collection

Welcome to this little part of the internet dedicated to Harriet - a former public servant and teacher from Ottawa that has recently passed. She was 90 years old when she passed and left behind a home, furniture and clothes that have lived through many decades. 

This collection is straight from her estate. I went through her many many clothes as my friend bought the house and wanted to keep her story alive. 

While sifting through her clothes, I could tell that she loved clothing and made some herself. These pieces are straight out of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s and all emanate a certain transmission. 

Clothes hold so much history. Harriet, like us at MXMLST, loved adding an original and unexpected touch to her outfits. From the patterns on the clothing to their shape, it is clear that there was a great deal of intention behind the clothing she picked out and made. 

In these estate sales, you can truly feel the importance of clothing in a person's life. they tell stories. And in order to carry these stories forward, we sometimes need to rework them to open a new chapter to their books. 

You'll notice that in this collection there are some pieces that are upcycled. This is just one way we keep Harriet's story alive through the clothes she made and wore. It's by redefining the clothes that we can create new memories.
