Born in Sydney Australia, Margaret (Peg) Steley grew up in a creatively fertile household with plenty of inspiration from her mother, a fibre artist who created weavings and tapestries. Emigrating to Canada in 1975, she settled in Vancouver, embarking on a career producing large spectacle entertainment such as the opening and closing ceremonies of Expo ‘86. In 2011, after formally leaving the workforce, Peg happily pursued jewelry designing, creating bold and ornate, collectible statement pieces. Earlier in 2015, an ‘aha’ moment spurred her to pivot toward developing her travel dress concept, and subsequently an extended travel wardrobe line, with “The Dress” as the signature piece.
Garments are sewn at a local production facility in Vancouver Canada and can be ordered online exclusively on herwebsite. Much to her delight, the first run is completely sold out, with a second shipment underway. Looking ahead, Peg is thoughtfully developing the travel line to include a hybrid tote/satchel with dedicated compartments for those indispensable travel accessories; a bolero-type shrug; an Italian Silk scarf and complementary lightweight costume jewellery. In preparation for her upcoming Spring 2016 launch, Peg encourages people to sign up through her new website MargoPolo.
“I love glamour, embellishment, and style” she says, “and I hope these travel designs become the go-to choices for modern women on the move .”
