The Designer Courtenay Aileen Grant
Growing up Courtenay Aileen Grant spent her childhood exploring her creativity through various forms of media and athletics. This Calgary native’s creative and active spirit has led to a unique marriage of her two passions in life, Artistic Swimming and Fashion design. Her two passions eventually collided when she began making her own lavish costumes which led to the Canadian synchronized swimming community taking notice and orders started flowing in. Today her creations are worn by some of the top athletes in the country on both the National and International stage.
In 2010 Courtenay moved to Vancouver to pursue a Degree in Fashion design at Kwantlen Polytechnic. Even though she has been running a successful swim costume business since 2005, Courtenay always looks to challenge herself personally and professionally. Through her experiences at Kwantlen and her internship at Chloë Angus Design, Courtenay has been able to further develop her production and design skills as well as gain the knowledge to build a strong and successful business in the fashion industry.
Now back in her home city of Calgary, AB Courtenay continues to grow and expand the company while at the same time, coach with top Canadian Club the Calgary Aquabelles.
