Working collaboratively together, Aniello Vigliotti and Marie-Joelle LeBlanc make a complementary pair. One brings wisdom of tradition and tailoring perfection; and the other breaks through the limitations of customary and brings a contemporary edge to the designs.

Aniello Vigliotti—Designer

Aniello Vigliotti was born in Rome, Italy, on December 22, 1944. He has been immersed in men’s fashion since his childhood. His father, Luigi Vigliotti, was a master tailor and taught him the trade. At the age of seven you would find young Aniello working by his side. In 1957, Aniello’s father immigrated to Canada to start a made-to-measure suit company. Two years later Aniello joined him. Equally talented in music as in tailoring, Aniello was offered tuition-free vocal training at the Theatro del Opera la Fenice in Venice. His passion for fashion however, was greater than his love of music. He turned down the scholarship to pursue his career as a tailor. With his father’s guidance, Aniello mastered the technique of creating a perfect fitting garment. In 1969, Aniello left Canada to work in the factories of New York’s fashion district, where he learned the process of mass production. With this knowledge and expertise, he returned to Canada in 1973, and established himself as a fine tailor.

Aniello has been dressing men since his childhood. He is now ready to present the collection that carries his name on the world stage. “A suit has got to fit, but it’s the nuances that make the suit an impressionable garment. The fabric, the stitching, and the detailing define the quality of the suit.”

Marie-Joelle LeBlanc—Creative Director

Marie-Joelle LeBlanc was born in Ottawa, Canada on February 4, 1984. A talented visual artist, she has been fascinated with fashion since childhood; dabbling in its creative aspects and filling her mind with its literature. Not knowing exactly how to enter into its fascinating world, fashion has nonetheless emerged in most of her major projects. It was the subject of her artwork and the object of her desires. She studied communications examining the workings of fashion, and dedicated her Master’s thesis on fashion as a means of communication across culture. She furthered independent studies on fashion by travelling to New York, Paris, India, Lebanon, and Italy examining the business from production to consumption. Finally she delved into the world of fashion design, and is the Creative Director for Majella LeBlanc and co-designer for the Anniello Collection. Miss LeBlanc’s philosophy is to create a garment that will allow the wearers to identify with their own elegance.

Always attentive of her clients’ needs, she astutely designs with quality in mind to ensure comfort and style. “A suit must not overshadow the man”, she asserts “but rather it must highlight all of his interiorized qualities: sophistication, intelligence, trustworthiness, and confidence.”
