Welcome to the legacy of Claire Haddad ~ Order of Canada recipient and fashion designer to the stars. As an ongoing project by her daughter and granddaughter, we have scanned decades of old magazine clippings from her scrapbooks, available to browse on this site as an archive of her incredible life and creative vision.
Claire’s grandson Christopher Zabaneh made the following video in 2007 for a film editing course, which remains one of the few videos available online about our ever fashionable and vibrant grandmother.
Claire Haddad donated her loungewear archives to Seneca College fashion resource center in Toronto. Photos from our Seneca visit for a special presentation in the spring of 2011 are featured in the slideshow Below. Her legacy is featured in the Seneca Fashion Resource Center blog posts: Canadian Fashion Icon (1927-2016) and A Canadian Fashion Dynasty.
