Luxe Du Jour was nominated earlier this year for 6 Canadian Business Association Awards.

The founders put together their collection of handbags and started selling them on consignment!” Tammy Le was a high school dropout and built Luxe Du Jour into a million dollar company. She later expanded the brand to Luxe Bag Spa to restore and repair previously used bags. She also saw the need for Luxe Bag Rental in the Canadian market.

Fast fashion is actually killing the planet faster than the carbon emissions that come from our cars and vehicles. With fast fashion increasing at a rapid rate, our carbon footprint has never been more important! With these massive brands producing millions of new products a day, the Carbon emissions are the worst we have ever seen. Finding new ways to reduce your carbon footprint is not only important it is critical! According to the World Bank, the fashion industry makes up for 10% of the world’s annual carbon emissions At this pace, the fashion industry’s greenhouse gas emissions will surge more than 50 % by 2030.
- The clothing and shoe industry account for more than 8% of the global climate impact.
- This number is more than all international flights and sea-based shipping logistics combined.
- 1.2 billion metric tons of greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere each year.
At Luxe Du Jour, you probably noticed your bag might come in a box that may be reused from another brand, not only does this protect it from your neighbours thinking it’s something exciting inside. It also is our way of reusing boxes and keeping the carbon footprint low. Re-using boxes encourages responsible consumption by extending the life of an item that has already been produced.We all must do our part – together we can lower fashion’s footprint.
We are encouraging our clients to live a sustainable lifestyle by extending the life cycle of an item that’s already been produced. That means renting, selling, giving a bag a second life. If your bag is scuffed up and no longer has that ‘new bag feeling’ take it to the spa, give it a touch up or simply moisturise it and if you still aren’t in love with it, resell it. Clients can also purchase accessories that are meant to extend the life of your bag that can include bag repair products and accessories to spice up your bag and fall in love all over again. Renting is sustainable and through Luxe Bag Rental you can be stylish, sustainable without breaking the bank!
Tammy is continuing to expand the business and turn it into a fintech company with the launch of her App coming later this year. She is also dabbling in the NFT market and a US expansion. Luxe Du Jour will be a brand to watch with all their innovation coming out this year.
