Throughout the world, there is a type of woman for whom Poème was created - women who go barefoot into the grass, who take long road trips into the unknown and who dream of sleeping under the stars by the light of the moon. These women want a style that is free flowing and feminine. They want quality garments that are ethically sourced and carefully crafted. They want a piece of clothing that not only looks good but serves a larger purpose.

Connie grew up on Vancouver Island where she now lives with her husband and two children. She started Poème as a way to express her love for the West Coast through fashion. Having been influenced by her years living and working in Africa she wanted to build a business with purpose. She wanted people to have access to handmade pieces created with quality materials and to show that ethical fashion can be functional, beautiful and empowering. She wanted to create a clothing line to be proud of and that people would be proud to wear.
