Judith & Charles is a brand of ready-to-wear professional clothing for women. The design of the pieces is classic, with a focus on fit and quality.

Its founders, Judith Richardson and Charles Le Pierrès, are partners in business and in life. Initially North American distributors of the French fashion brand Teenflo for 22 years, they launched their own collections under the name Judith & Charles in 2009. Judith Richardson is the brand’s artistic director, overseeing a team of designers.

The clothing is designed at the Judith & Charles headquarters located on Meilleur Street in Montreal, before being manufactured primarily in Ontario. As of 2018, the company has around a  dozen shops across Canada.
