Recycled Fur makes Quebec Designer Famous

Posted by Kit Mitchell-Innes on March 3, 2010 at 6:00 AM

Fashion week is in full swing in Monteal and correspondent Brandy Yanchyk has alerted us to Quebec Designer Mariouch Gagne and her take on ethical fashion. Mariouche was born in the First Nations village of Loretteville and now is an internationally known fashion designer based in Montreal.

Mariouche makes her clothes out of recycled fur and silk. Whilst taking her master's degree in design management at Milan’s Domus Academy, Mariouche won second prize in a contest where she used her mother's old fur coat to dress up a reversible ski outfit she

created. Since that success she has never looked back and has sold her creations

to over 18 countries and makes half of her revenue on international sales. She

has her own store in downtown Montreal and says she has recycled over 50,000

coats and turned them into new creations. It has also been estimated that close

to half a million animals’ lives have been saved from these designs.

If you'd like Brandy to chase this story further, interview Mariouch or look into her working process or anything else. Let us know, here at GFM!
