Claudia Wierzba is a wife, mother, and adventurer. Moving west in 1995, Claudia fell in love with the Rocky Mountains, the city of Calgary and Grant. After repeatedly trying to escape the cold winters by travelling and living around the world, Claudia and Grant felt their hearts were being called back home to Calgary.
When they moved back home, Claudia and Grant brought with them the many experiences, adventures, and fashion staples they had discovered along their journey. A love of riding boots emerged from a love of horses discovered on a cattle ranch in central Alberta. An adoration with knits grew from discovering the softness of Merinomink (merino fibre, possum fur and a little silk) in a pink hat from New Zealand. As they resettled back into life in the Rocky Mountains, the idea to bring the most lush and beautiful fabrics and leathers to the Canadian market, while supporting local artisans from around the globe was born.
As the dream of Shear Luxury began to form, Claudia became increasingly aware of the impact the fashion industry had on both humans and the environment. The more Claudia learned, the more important ethically sourced garments became: and as the news came out about the collapse of the Rana Plaza Garment Factory, where 1,100 people were killed and 3,000 injured, Claudia immediately decided sustainability and ethical working conditions will be the backbone of Shear Luxury.
Claudia is thrilled to launch Shear Luxury in the heart of historic Inglewood, Calgary where every day is sweater weather and boots can be worn every month of the year!
Since opening in Inglewood in June 2016 Claudia has expanded her designer collections carrying some of the most coveted and respected brands - all with their own unique story.
