The road from a small and modest investment firm to an international fashion retailer has been driven with bold steps forward: but we will never forget where we came from. From our founders William Islar and Jacqueline Maire to today's team, our vision is dynamic, innovative and evolving, with a unique character that remains steadfast.


The Beginning

Best friends William Islar and Jacqueline Maire start a small investment consulting firm. 

eCommerce is Born

With the opening of Infants, Toddlers &
Beyond, and EYB Cosmetics, the 
company's endeavor expands from
investing to retailer 

Our family expands

Fierce, Fabulous & Beyond and WYS Menswear
joins The North York Company. 

We make it official.

The North York Company brings all our
companies together under one organization
with two new additions: Purses, Shoes
& More and Lashes, Nails & More.

Our family expands

The creation of Bikini Bold and Lingerie Bold takes
the company into a new space for empowering expression.
