THE DESIGNER : ISABELLE ELIE
« Twelve years ago, I founded Atelier Boutique Isabelle Élie inc. with a seamstress. We now have 12 full-time employees. Like all Quebec designers, we have gone through several phases of development. But as always, we continue to produce all our items in our own workshops — from suits and accessories to cocktail and evening dresses. Concurrently, we sold our high-end products exclusively in our own boutiques, which allowed me to establish a direct relationship with clients. Thanks to this special relationship, I was privy to my clients’ comments, which in turn made it possible for me to adapt to their requirements and the realities of the market with products that embody contemporary design, flawless cuts and seamless production. I love fluidity. I love movement. I love contrast. I love the fluidity of my skirts combined with the more structured look of my jackets. A piece of clothing must be as attractive in motion as it is at rest. Much like a sculptor, my first inspiration has, and will always be the material…that is, the fabric. It is this encounter with the fibre that gives rise to my cuts. All my cuts flow in the direction of the fabric, which is my guide. The result is a comfortable piece of clothing that hugs the body of the woman wearing it. I therefore spend a great deal of time searching for fabrics that excite me. Women always seek to stand out without being overly extravagant. That is why I offer them colour and details that provide a note of originality they do not find in a rather monochromatic world market.
