Do you love being scared? Do you watch horror movies with the lights off? Maybe you should try visiting a haunted house… if you dare!

The Nightmares Fear Factory in Niagara Falls has captured some of the terrified reactions of its patrons… makes you wonder what could instill such fear?

It has been a long process but the end is in sight!

Revamping our bespoke shirt program has been a long process but the end is in sight!

 

The new bespoke presentation is in binder format and easy to use... not to mention an eye-pleaser!

The new bespoke presentation is in binder format and easy to use… not to mention pleasing to the eye!

We are excited about our new bespoke shirt presentation! Switching from a box/card format to binders was a long time coming but it’s almost here. It was a time consuming and labour intensive project but our retailers and end-consumers are worth it. Of course the style book has also been updated to keep pace and includes more, from collars and pockets to fronts and backs.

Smile 2 Smile Brings the Children of Haiti Their New Buddies

2014 May 29


Last week, the Smile 2 Smile team came by the Antonio Valente showroom for a visit, this time to pick up some fabric goodies for another batch of Smile 2 Smile Buddies for their 2014 Collection.

In the fall 2013, this globally conscious, socially responsible company went on a mission to provide children in in Haiti with a fun and cheerful toy to enrich their lives and to put a smile on their little faces. From their experiences, the children were all smiles from the start. And let’s just say, it has done the same for us here at Antonio Valente.

Antonio received this touching note from Smile 2 Smile founder Melissa Calixte:

Attached to the postcard was a series of photographs of the little ones enjoying the company of their new buddies.
