UPDATE MARCH 26: The paper is gone from the window and it looks pretty cool from the outside. Peek in to see the new clothing racks. Hopefully they will be all up and running tomorrow.
There is another new fashion store coming to 40 Ossington, just south of Lennox Gallery, this time bringing French style. The store is called Annie Aime. This soon-to-open boutique is run by Annie Messange, a Parisienne who has been living in Toronto for 25 years helping clients find fashion that suits their needs. She specializes in discovering fashion from a wide roster of new and emerging designers. She opened French Accents boutique in Yorkville and is now expanding her operations to Ossington, where she is focusing more on her own artistic vision, bringing unique products to the area.
The store will carry seasonal designers for men and women plus accessories and footwear, beauty products, and even specialty tea.
Annie hopes to have her shop open next week and have an official grand opening in mid April.
The interior design is being run by Toronto designer John Tong of +tongtong design. He is known for his innovative clothing rack design. This is a video of John doing his thing:

And another I took this morning when I got a personal tour of the space. Very clever clothing rack!
