Shelby is the owner & founder of Mack House, Toronto’s first self-service sneaker customization studio, as well as the Director of Basketball Advancement for the Toronto Raptors. Playing Basketball is what ignited her love for sneakers & she hasn’t looked back since. She founded Makeway because she was tired of putting up with an industry & retail experience that was unwelcoming & made for men, but more importantly, to build a safe place for women to come together in the name of sneakers.
Throughout her career, Abby has led PR & Marketing strategies for many sports & entertainment brands including Nike Toronto, Toronto Raptors, Toronto Maple Leafs, Foot Locker & many more. Currently she is the Head of Brand and Business Strategy at Canada Basketball.
As a proud child of immigrant parents, Abby also co-founded Rise Tribe, a non-profit aimed to power the next generation of Filipinx-Canadian leaders. Her love of sneakers, streetwear culture & building community led her to launch Makeway as a way to give women a much-needed space to feel celebrated & to cultivate a community that has been, for so long, underserved.

Owners and sisters, Julia and Gabrielle Bautista were in search of their go-to nail shop that prioritized cleanliness, nail health and creativity, while immersed in an environment that inspired you to be you. Fortunately for us, we didn’t find it so in 2015 Naked was born. Naked was built from a customer’s perspective on the desire to bring modern self-care to our community, just the way we wanted to experience it. Naked has become the go-to spot for the best nails in Toronto and we've ventured into expanding our skincare and lifestyle products to fit our Naked community. We strive to continue to redefine the self-care experience with a lifestyle lens by creating multi-sensory experiences, pushing boundaries of self-care, and a devotion to community building.
Bringing you the flyest nails in the game, our WNBA x Naked Beauty Bar nail stickers come with custom designs and colourways to freshen up any manicure. Get game day ready with us.
