Copps' exquisite work has not only been seen on Toronto stages, but also at the Redken Symposium in Las Vegas and Dallas, as well as the L'Oréal Professionnel shows in Bogota, Singapore, Melbourne, Prague and Rome. Her dignified gowns have been a part of the Beauty Pageant Česká Miss in the Czech Republic, and her statement jewelry pieces were featured in the short film “Mirror”, which was selected for the Canadian Fashion Film Festival 2018. Professionally, Copps has worked with the elite Aveda Institute of Canada, as well as a few American celebrity hair stylists such as Frank Rizzieri, Lupe Vose, Allen Ruiz, and Peter Gray.
Her most recent and well-known features are seen in Canadian Hairdresser International, Dauphine, Weddingbells, Elegant Wedding, Chloe, VOGUE Italia, Press The Fashion, TOP Class, and the ArtTour International, to name a few. Additionally, in 2016, Copps was the closing fashion designer at the FAT (Fashion Art Toronto). The press and audience adored her couture collection “She is a Queen” as this collection embodied the essence of female empowerment and beauty.
Recently, Marie Copps was honoured to be chosen as 1 of 15 fashion designers for the White Cashmere Collection 2018. This world renowned Canadian collection is an exclusive, internationally acclaimed showcase of original fashions by top Canadian designers. Copps created a luxurious gown crafted from the soft sheets of Cashmere Bathroom Tissue, complemented with a couture headpiece and decorated with crystals, pearls, and beads.
With the infamous Fashion Shoot Extravaganza Show under her belt, this is only the beginning for Marie Copps. Toronto should be on the look out for more luxurious events produced by COPPS Productions Ltd. in the near future. Stay tuned.
“I’m a sucker for fine detailing and couture-level detailing. Fashion Art Toronto’s “Couture” Day- Day 5 featured a lot of designers who are masters of the art of the atelier, but I was particularly struck by the work of Toronto designer Marie Copps. Her choices of colours and fabrics are unmatched, but it’s her head pieces – crafted with careful elegance usually reserved for French Fashion Houses, that steal the show. If you’re looking for the “high fashion” wow (which I of course am) – this is the show for you.”

"The last night at the Fashion Art Toronto on April 16 was dedicated to HAUTE CULTURE. Unique and exclusive clothing items with the highest standards led the fashion show at Daniels Spectrum. The finale walk of FAT belonged to Marie Copps, who showcased fashion pieces that were true artworks on the runway. She’s a Queen was my favourite collection of the whole FAT.”

“As both a visual artist and fashion designer, it’s no surprise Marie Copps’ collection teemed with elaborate pieces and the highest attention to detail. An eye-popping yellow dress with gold embellishments was topped off with a shawl of white flowers.”
“Toronto-based artist and designer Marie Copps designed this incredibly opulent, Cleopatra-worthy outfit.”
