Montreal is known for many things--Cirque du Soleil, bagels sweetened with honey, Stanley Cups, and festivals. It is also known for its heavy French influence, so naturally, the fashion is good.
Avant-garde designer Marie Saint Pierre is distinguished and celebrated in and outside of Montreal.
Pierre has shown at New York Fashion Week and was the first 'Quebecer' chosen to show her work during the New York trade show, Fashion Coterie.
Her designs--especially those with metallic detailing, are futuristic with sharp edges, reminiscent of Pierre Cardin's aesthetic.
Though the collection is geometric in shape, the fabric she uses is like a lighter and softer neoprene, making her garments comfortable and easy to move in.
Pierre also has a line of versatile garments that can be worn in many different ways a la American Apparel, but with a higher-end look.
