MARIE-ANNE MILJOURS - FOUNDER & DESIGNER
Marie-Anne Miljours studied in Fashion Design at l’École Supérieure de mode de Montréal (ESM - UQÀM). During her studies, Marie-Anne acquired experience in the fashion industry especially in Montréal and New York. She decided to study in leather work when she came back to Montreal.
Her mission has always been to create sustainable and ethical products that can suit everybody. Following her instincts, she created Matu : her own accessory brand made of vegetable tanned leather in 2014. Wanting to get closer to her customers, she changed the business model and founded the company under the name Miljours Studio, a more personal name afterall.
MICHÈLE LUSSIER - COMMUNICATIONS & MEDIA RELATIONS COORDINATOR
During her studies in Communications - Public Relations, Michèle has always been interested in the fashion and design industry. During an internship in press relations she had the opportunity to work with creators, during the souk@sat for example. During her degree she worked a little in event organisation and logistics at large, which she particularly enjoyed.
During a whole year, as a personal interest, she took private classes at Miljours Studio with Marie-Anne to learn how to work with leather.
