MAISON MARIE SAINT PIERRE: A LOOK INTO THE TECHNICIAN BEHIND THE HOUSE

Marie Saint Pierre has been at the head of her namesake Fashion House for over 35 years, crafting, moulding and continuously defining her brand. Always mindful of the planet and respectful of the highest standards of the industry, our mission is to provide ethical, functional clothes that celebrate beauty, innovation and craftsmanship. This has allowed us to rank amongst the leaders of our trade, as a proudly independent luxury brand in North America. A pioneer in female empowerment and an ambassador for impeccably tailored quality pieces, Marie has built her brand on the notion of immaculately designed collections, entirely produced in Montreal, through the House’s 360-degree infrastructure, one that is lead by women, for women.

The development and design process rests upon three main components: Aesthetics, Technicality and Wellbeing. Ingrained in the DNA of every piece, these elements create a product synonymous with timelessness and forward-thinking design, created entirely by Marie and her team of expert pattern makers, technicians, sample makers and seamstresses. Through months of fittings and creative meetings, the collections embrace the true notion of authenticity and are the extension of the irrefutable Marie Saint Pierre aesthetic.

Through the use of ethical, distinctive and innovative textiles, Marie has the ability to play with volume and form to create true pieces of standing art. “It’s through a real love and passion for fabric that I started my design journey. The medium is the inspiration, its movement and its personality. It is at the very heart of my design process.”

Raw edged seams and bias cut garments are a staple of the modern appeal of the House’s vision. Everything is laser cut, in order to ensure the very best use of each material and guarantee clean lines throughout, as most pieces are without inner linings. These operations are put in place in order to allow maximal comfort and longevity to the garment. Shapes are created around the notion of movement, allowing the client to travel through life with ease and confidence. The development process is constantly challenged, offering new ways to assemble, new techniques of bonding, usage of hidden tapes and minimal over lock seams in order to put functionality and durability at the center of the creative process.

Comfort and wellbeing finally come in as core elements of any Marie Saint Pierre product. Quality is at the forefront, where technical properties are enhanced, allowing for maximal endurance. Each piece is a celebration of our craftsmanship; every design is created to promote experiential luxury.
