About Us

The Shops at the Empress consists of three stores all located inside the iconic Empress Hotel. The first store is Designers International, the second Collections by 5th Avenue and finally London Towne Boutique. The latest addition to our shops is our Designers International at Mayfair Shopping Centre. Each store specializes in their own unique range of products such as fine cashmere, silks and leather goods. 

The Shops at the Empress have been family operated for 45 years and counting. The owner travels around the globe annually to find the best merchandise that no one else has. Our stores have items from Canada, Italy, England, Scotland, Turkey and more. 

Over the years many clients have made a tradition out of going to high tea at the Empress and spending some time within our shops afterwards. 

Come by anytime and find something beautiful yet unusual.
