Our Story ...

Owner and founder of SWISH Ladieswear, Lynn Ujvary, has always had a passion for fashion.

After running away to Dallas, TX, to pursue a career in fashion, and working in design in several design houses in Montreal, QC, she stepped back from the fast-paced and exciting world of fashion to have a family in beautiful Gibsons, BC.

Then, in 2009, Lynn found herself on a fateful trip to New York City, and was drawn back into the glamour, creativity and fun that come with a life in fashion. Reluctant to leave it behind, she came home and saw a need. Here was a whole community of stylish, fabulous women, who couldn't jet off to New York City just to get their fashion fix. And, with that, SWISH , as a little portal to New York in Gibsons, was born!

In 2017, Lynn brought SWISH to Castlegar as well. She handed over the well-established Gibsons location into the capable hands of Jeff Amiel who, along with the wonderful and talented Gibsons staff have continued to build on the SWISH tradition of outstanding service.

SWISH to Castlegar is making its mark in the Kootenays with an Like the Gibsons store, our Castleegar location is also very involved in the community and in supporting local events and organizations.

Since opening its doors in 2010, SWISH has been bringing New York style to the west coast in a big way, evolving from a small co-op space, to the two wonderful shopping places-to-be of today, with the best of New York style, emulated through hard-sourced lines and in-house designs! And all of our Swish Apparel™ fashions are manufactured right here in Canada.
