For someone unfamiliar with Modern Eternity, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
The brand Modern Eternity is about celebrating and cherishing motherhood. Our mission is to create progressive maternity outerwear and clothes which are not only comfortable, but very functional and affordable. This is extremely empowering to women from a budget flexibility standpoint to her level of activities and lifestyle. With our products, we try and make life as comfortable and pleasant as possible during this very important time of life, which for many women can be a bit trying from both a physical and emotional standpoint.
Although there have been many advances made in fashion design through the generations, it seems the design of maternity clothes has lagged significantly. Modern Eternity’s patented 3 in 1 maternity panel technology permits its outerwear to be worn both pre-natal and post-natal. It promotes Mother Baby attachment and closeness when worn with a sling or carrier.
Fashionable styles ensure that our products are not a responsible maternity purchase, but a proper well thought out longer term investment in a wearable design piece with the additional extra of a maternity function.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
The team at Modern Eternity has over 30 years of combined design and manufacturing experience in outerwear. From Canada, with extreme cold and snowy winter weather, quality dependable outerwear is not only a fashion statement but can also be a question of survival. Developing a quality coat at a reasonable price was an essential purpose of our ideals since our companies inception.
Both founders and designers within the company discovered the beauty of life and the lack of affordable, functional, and stylish maternity clothes on the market. The normal progression of development followed its course and through a combination of design and pragmatism, as well as applied research in cold Canadian winters, the 3-in-1 maternity winter coat was conceived.

Our wool styles MEC004 and MEC022 are stylish practical career maternity mom office attire.
As mentioned above, what defines Modern Eternity, is the thought and design put into a prospective moms lifestyle. Modern Eternity’s patented 3 in 1 maternity panel technology which permits its outerwear to be worn both pre-natal and post-natal is a prime example of balance between design, comfort, pragmatic affordability and love. Looking good, feeling good provides empowerment which is all about expression of freedom and lifestyle. All our maternity clothes, including our maternity pre/post natal nursing tops and maternity dresses, strike this same aforementioned balance. Be Modern, Be Eternal!
