Better Together

Better Together

We turned our lens on the dynamic duos, couples, and families that we admire to celebrate love this Valentine’s Day.

“We strike a nice balance with our strengths and passions, and that has really solidified our relationship. Josh helps push me out of my comfort zone and stay grounded, where I help him stay organized and motivated. He brings the best out of me, and I couldn’t imagine my life without him.”

“My favourite ordinary moment to spend with each other is wandering the city with no set agenda, a little coffee, vintage shopping, the health food store, and lots of laughs.”

PARRIS GORDON & MOOKIE MORRIS
Designer & Co-founder, Beaufille; Musician

“There’s a great level of understanding of each other on how much time we need creatively; why we have to work weekends and evenings and are not on a normal schedule. In this way, it would be so hard to be with someone not in a creative industry because they might lack this understanding. Plus Mookie has very good taste, so it’s amazing to have access to his eye and opinion.”

PARRIS GORDON & CHLOE GORDON
Co-founders, Jewellers & Designers of Beaufille

“As sisters, we had a very close relationship growing up, which built a strong foundation for our working relationship. Through working together all these years we’ve become stronger both creatively and business-wise because of each other. We always try to motivate one another and push each other in the creative process. Without a strong foundation, and love and respect for one another, this would not be possible.”

”[Being creative] is more or less our way of life; who we are. We all have the best time when we hang out because we support one another creatively, and get excited about the same things. We are always bouncing ideas off one another, and talking about design. Nothing is checked at the door!”

JEREMY RODNEY HALL, ASHLEY PETERKIN-BLACKWOOD & ELIJAH

“Elijah has changed our relationship with each other by way of communication. We communicate so much more about him and towards each other, making it a point to be on the same page.”
