Claire Haddad donated her fashion archives to the Seneca college fashion resource centre for students to be able to have hands-on access to the garments. Here are a few of the may pieces archived there, including her own wedding dress she made in 1944.

For those of you longing for a Claire Haddad Lifestyles Original of your own, her loungewear can be found in online vintage shops such as Etsy, Ruby Lane, ebay, and other sites. Sellers always post a picture of the tags and often have sourced this site for information on the designer. The slideshow below features some outfits we have found for sale online, many may no longer be available.

1970

Today is a sad day, as is marks the peaceful passing of my beloved grandmother at the age of 92. She was laughing and in good spirits till the end of her full life. This evening I am honouring her and updating her online clippings collection from where I left off at year 1970. Please enjoy her clippings collection with more to come. Blessings for her transition and may her memory be eternal ~
