White House, under its Sympli and Sympli Grand labels, designs and manufactures lifestyle clothing in the Lower Mainland with a focus on styles and fabrics meant to flatter a variety of body shapes.

White House wholesales the Sympli line to more than 800 retailers in Canada and the U.S. On the North Shore, shoppers can find the label at Phoenix and BJ's Fashions in West Vancouver and Nina's Boutique and Twiga in North Vancouver.

At the Profit 500 awards held in Toronto in June, White House was also named the winner of this year's BDO Business Value Award in recognition of its efforts to maximize the value of the company.
