Who We Are
The Boutique at Seneca is a one-of-a-kind fashion retail learning lab for students in Seneca Polytechnic’s Fashion Business and Fashion Business Management Programs in the School of Fashion, located in Toronto, Ontario. Our on-campus and online stores serve the Seneca community and are built on the passion of our soon-to-be graduating fashion business students.
Each academic term, The Boutique is operated by a new team of second-year Fashion Business / Fashion Business Management students along with faculty, staff, and student mentors. Students work as Sales Associate in The Boutique on campus as well as take on a role in a "department" within The Boutique's business operation.
We take pride in the continuous legacy of our well-established boutique and the passionate students who enable it to live on. The Boutique has launched hundreds of student careers since 1973. Allowing students to practice the necessary skills to build a career in fashion buying, planning, inventory management, digital marketing, store operations, training and development, financial management, analytics, customer service, and e-commerce.
What We Do
We work with Canadian vendors to offer our customers quality casual and everyday workwear at competitive prices. We pick trendy pieces of exceptional quality from the brands you love, including Dex, Black Tape, Spense, Lylu, and various accessories brands. We curate multiple products from these brands, offering variety, versatility, and comfort. Count on us to find the perfect piece that will always stay in style and keep you looking fresh and chic. We try to have timeless items in our boutique, as our main point in supporting sustainability in fashion, as this helps our customers create a capsule wardrobe and minimalistic style.
