Rare pearl from fashion world
A leading figure among Québec’s couturiers, Marie Saint Pierre enjoys international acclaim for the avant-garde textures and architectural lines of her clothing designs. In 1989, she became the first Québec-born designer to be an official participant at the Fashion Coterie event in New York. Her creations are sold throughout Canada and in many cities in the United States.
This Montréal-based designer recently opened a shop in Miami’s thriving Wynwood district, close to prestigious fashion houses like Louis Vuitton, Hublot and Chrome Heart. With its many galleries, museums and collections, and an eye-catching fashion scene, it’s a famous hub for modern art and design.
In addition to displaying Saint Pierre collections, the shop will unite elements of fashion, art and interior design to present creations by artists from Québec. For the inauguration, a painting by Marc Seguin adorned the walls of the new store.
Known for her generosity and dedication to social causes, particularly on behalf of women and children in need, Marie Saint Pierre has received numerous awards in her career, including the Rare Pearl distinction from the Montréal Chamber of Commerce, in 2002, for her community involvement.
