It’s not uncommon for people to want to live or even work in their favourite neighbourhood, but Carla Dyck has taken her love of Winnipeg and Corydon Ave to a whole new level. Carla has designed a clothing line that allows people to fashionably show pride in their neighbourhood and city.
“I’ve seen other’s wearing leggings with graphic designs and thought my Winnipeg could work on these,” she said. “Putting a city on wearable art was not something I’d seen before. Just graphic art like snowflakes or graphic designs.”

Clothes to home
BY DOUG LUNNEY
Carla Dyck wears her heart on her sleeve when it comes to her love for Winnipeg, so it’s fitting she’s designed a clothing line that allows others to fashionably show pride in our city.
Dyck has operated Carla Dyck Photography since 2010, mostly selling fine art prints on e-commerce site etsy.com. A couple of months ago, she noticed leggings and skirts with graphic designs on them, then came up with an idea.
“I took a look at these and thought my Winnipeg could work on these,” she said.
