So Glad You Stopped By!

I'm Collette Richardson, I'm excited you're here. I am the face behind the brand - Brand Squawk, a Canadian women's apparel brand designed here in Vancouver, BC Canada and inspired by my love for positive vibes, long weekends, road trips, and designed for the every day girl - the jeans and tee kinda girl! 
2019 is the start of my third year in business and I'm excited to bring you new designs hand screened on the same high quality apparel pieces you have come accustomed to love. I only print a small batch of each design which allows each piece to be a 'limited edition.'
I'm a wife, mother, sister, daughter, nana and a lover of the sport of triathlon, whose go-to outfit is a pair of jeans, a graphic tee or sweatshirt and a pair of sneakers.
The brand 'Brand Squawk' is my own 'true sense of style'. A brand created with some grace and gumption and a mantra 'just be YOU and watch the world love it!' I've always had a passion to have my own business and to be a part of the thousands of other strong women who have decided to follow their dreams, become entrepreneurs and build a vibrant community that gives back. Our 2019 charity of choice is WORLD BICYCLE RELIEF. A non-profit organization mobilizing people through the power of bicycles. $2 from every apparel piece purchased will go towards building a bike to send to Africa. Thank you in advance for supporting this charity with us. In February of this year we happily donated 30 t-shirts to Westminster House - a alcohol and drug addiction treatment center for women in New Westminster, BC as part of our 'PUCKER UP' campaign on Galentines Day.
What I absolutely love
I met my husband while swimming at our masters swim club. What started out as 'lane mates' led to a fairy tale proposal in Paris, France followed by an 'Under the Tuscan Skies' wedding in Italy. He's my soul mate, best friend and I can't imagine my life without him.

I simply cannot live without candy. I love it all - Big Feet, Nerds, m&m's, jelly babies, Smarties, marshmallow bananas, Hershey Chocolate, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups -  the list goes on and on. You might just find some candy in your package when it arrives on your doorstep!

Triathlon has given me a discipline to train in three sports, a drive to push my body beyond what I thought was possible and a group of like minded friends who share the same passion. I'm grateful and thankful that I can live a healthy lifestyle here in our beautiful province of British Columbia.

I hope you enjoy your Brand Squawk experience as much as I have enjoyed creating my brand.
Just be YOU and watch the world love it!
