"Today, we gather to celebrate the culmination of 35 years of Canadian craftsmanship and the indomitable spirit of creativity, innovation, and social responsibility embodied by one remarkable woman: Marie Saint Pierre.

In a world where trends come and go Marie Saint Pierre stands as a beacon of enduring excellence. Her journey through the labyrinth of the fashion industry has been nothing short of extraordinary. From the bustling streets of Montreal to the glamorous runways of Paris and New York, Marie has conquered hearts and shattered glass ceilings.

Her accolades read like a symphony of success, each note resonating with the harmonious blend of talent and tenacity. From being the first fashion designer admitted to the Arts Academy of Canada to receiving prestigious honours like the Knight of the National Order of Quebec and the Meritorious Service Medal, Marie has adorned her journey with laurels earned through sheer dedication and passion.

But beyond the glitz and glamour lies a deeper narrative - one of conscious creation and ethical stewardship. Maison Marie Saint Pierre is not just a label; it's a testament to the unwavering commitment to sustainability and social consciousness. Every stitch, fabric, and design reflect a profound respect for the environment and a sincere desire to positively impact society. In an industry often criticized for its wasteful practices and cutthroat competition, Marie Saint Pierre is a paragon of virtue, proving that fashion can be beautiful and benevolent.

Marie's devotion to her roots runs deep, like a towering oak. Montreal isn't just her city; it's her muse, canvas, and home. Through various charitable initiatives, like providing new and warm clothing for more than 5000 children, she has woven herself into the fabric of her community, leaving an indelible mark of compassion and empathy.

But Marie's journey is not just about the past; it's about the future - a future she envisions with boundless creativity and unwavering optimism. With each collection and innovation, she paints a picture of a worldwhere style meets substance, where fashion is not just a reflection of trends but a celebration of individuality and integrity.

So as we raise our glasses to Marie Saint Pierre and Maison Marie Saint Pierre, let us celebrate an extraordinary journey and reaffirm our commitment to creativity, sustainability, and social responsibility by wearing her designs.

In Marie's world, fashion isn't just about what you wear; it's about who you are and what you stand for. Thank you, Marie, for your positive impact on humanity and the exuberantly distinctive designs that make everyone wearing your timeless pieces feel special and unique!"

A leading pioneer in the Canadian fashion scene, Marie Saint Pierre remains at the top of her game after her 35-year journey. A remarkable achievement in a domain that today rejects what it adored yesterday. Throughout her career, Marie Saint Pierre received numerous awards, grants and rewards for her creations, her entrepreneurial spirit and her commitment to the community. In 2007, she received the Knight of the National Order of Quebec, and it’s the title of Knight of the National Order of Canada and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal that is awarded to her in 2012. The first fashion designer to be admitted to the Arts Academy of Canada. In 2015, she received the Outstanding Achievement Award and in 2018 the Designer of the Year in Women's Fashion from the Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards. In 2019, she received the Meritorious Service Medal awarded to her by the General Governor of Canada.

Located in Montreal’s Garment District on Chabanel street, the studio offers a space of 25 000 square feet, Maison Marie Saint Pierre currently employs a team of artisans working in close collaboration with local manufacturers. All clothes are entirely created, designed and fabricated in Montreal. The 915 Atelier is a space entirely dedicated to the production. Created in a atelier with a team of over 60 people, the collections are available in its flagship boutiques located in Montreal, Miami, online and in over 70 luxury ready-to-wear points of sale across North America.

Outstanding creations

A style recognizable by its graphic and linear effects, Maison Marie Saint Pierre collections use luxurious fabrics and a confection organized around research and development. Each creation, resulting from a real reflection of the fabrics, is a vision of the future. Added in recent years was a men’s capsule, an accessories and furniture collection, as well as perfumes and candles. The Maison Marie Saint Pierre also creates home and fashion accessories that fit perfectly into her collections thanks to her rigor, her attention to detail and her relentless pursuit of excellence.

The Maison’s vision and core values include conscious and ethical processes in its 360 actions: sourcing, product development, production and shipping. The brand partners with accredited European eco-friendly textile suppliers in Italy maintaining a low environmental impact and carbon footprint.

Marie Saint Pierre seldom misses an opportunity to represent her city, Montreal city of design. The metropolis is at the heart of the brand since its clothes are created, designed and fabricated there for over 30 years. Marie Saint Pierre is also extremely involved in the evolution of fashion in Quebec : President of the Quebec Designer’s Association (CCMQ) in 2011, she is also the instigator of the CABINET ÉPHÉMÈRE, which invites local designers to showcase their creations as part of a nomadic boutique. Marie Saint Pierre involves herself in social issues, with women and children causes being particularly of importance to her. In 2004, the fund SOUS ZERO was set up. Not only did it provide new and warm clothing for more than 5000 children, but it also improved and supported their self-esteem. Additionally, she is on the board of directors for the MU society, which, by creating murals that are anchored in local communities, aim to trigger a social transformation to turn Montreal into an open-air art gallery.
