This pairing sees talented designer Lauren Bagliore dress Dragon and entrepreneur Manjit Minhas in what will surely be a show stopping collaboration. Both Lauren and Manjit invest their time in many community and philanthropic efforts despite their incredible professional endeavours.
This Petroleum Engineering student turned beer baroness is the newest Dragon on the hit TV show Dragon’s Den on CBC in its 10 season. Manjit is the co-founder and co-owner of the Minhas Breweries and Distillery. She started her companies at the ripe age of 19 in Alberta, when she launched her beer in Alberta with her partner and brother, Ravinder Minhas. Together, they gave the big boys a run for their money, thereby becoming the first successful company to enter the Canadian beer industry in many decades. Over the last few years, wherever Manjit and Ravinder have entered the marketplace, and especially in Canada, they have single handedly caused a huge stir in the marketplace. In late 2008, Manjit co-wrote a book on her remarkable story, business philosophies and the history of the brewery she bought. The hardcover 108 page glossy book is titled “Brewing Up a Damn Good Story.”
Last year Manjit’s companies had revenues in excess of $155 million. Manjit has been nominated and has won several business industry awards. Manjit serves as a Board of Director for The TransCanada Trail and West Island College. Manjit is born and raised in Calgary and still calls it home with her husband and they have two young children.
Lauren Bagliore is a NYC/YYC-living fashion designer has previous participated in the Toronto event, with her debut in Calgary this 2017. Lauren is an incredibly talented and passionate woman and successful entrepreneur. With opening up her first concept shop almost two years ago located in Inglewood, Calgary, Lauren continues to create collections that inspire her clients, the industry and the local community.
Lauren’s style is edgy, minimalistic, modern and monochromatic; she surprises her followers with pieces that contain pops of colour – occasionally pink and red. We’re fortunate to have Lauren create something special in red for Manjit to showcase on our runway.
