The queen of Montreal fashion fêtes 25 years in the business

marie sainte pierre 020.jpgMarie Saint Pierre started 25 years ago with a small collection of jackets and a big desire to create couture-quality clothing in Montreal.

Since then, her creations have been on the covers of fashion magazines and in stores around the world.

She is known for layering techniques and fluid lines, and often works with stretch fabrics.

As she is marking her the milestone of a quarter century in the fashion industry, Marie Sainte Pierre graciously welcomed Cinq à Six host Jeanette Kelly to her atelier.

Marie Saint Pierre was generous with her time, and thoughful in her responses.

In this feature interview, she talks about how early exposure to art helped shape her aesthetic, even as a child.

And she examines the direction she is taking with her creativity now, designing interiors and furniture.
