Pam Shainhouse, Alli Style.
Allistyle was the brainchild of Alli Shapiro who along with Pam Shainhouse, her mother, realized that there was little available for the plus size market that was not cheap, frumpy, made of polyester and from outside of Canada. At the time of inception, Alli had been suffering from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma since 1999 experiencing different bouts of weight gain and loss. She had difficulty finding clothing that she would wear and even cried when she went shopping.
Alli passed away in July 2006, leaving Pam with the vision to continue on her legacy. Four years later, Pam began working on Allistyle, and when Whitney Thompson, the winner of America’s Next Top Model, signed on to become the face of the line, the line began to take flight.
Throughout the past year Allistyle has moved from just producing plus size to producing all sizes. We believe that “great style has no size”. Our Brand is inclusive natural intelligent fashion.
Allistyle is made in Canada, with the fabric imported from the Orient. The viscose from bamboo and organic cotton fabric is milled in Canada. The characteristics of the line are simplicity, comfort, and sophistication, travel friendly and classic. Allistyle does not advocate large shapeless dressing, but clothing that hugs your curves providing a gorgeous silhouette.
