Travis Taddeo designs ready-to-wear clothing for men and women along with some unisex pieces. Many of his garments are timeless classics not associated with any particular season or collection.

Travis Taddeo clothing is casual, comfortable and influenced by street style.

Jersey is a favourite fabric, though the designer also likes to work with leather and silk. Almost all of the fabrics used are black, with touches of navy blue, grey and white.

A native of Calgary, Alberta, Travis Taddeo moved to Montreal in 2001. He studied fashion design at LaSalle College and received his diploma in 2007. The following year, he launched his eponymous brand. His clothing was primarily available at monthly sales in his Old Montreal studio on St. Paul Street, online, and by appointment.

In 2016, Travis Taddeo left Montreal and moved to SoHo in New York City. His collections continued to be produced in Quebec until March 2018, when he moved all of his activities to the United States.
