Local designer spotlight: Valerie Dumaine




Montreal’s own success Valerie Dumaine is an ambitious and groovy young lady from which her designs, I much adore. 





Her style is simple yet refined and it aspires of classic    fashion statements from past decades. When asked where she finds such inspiration to create and complete her collections, she shared;



These are reflections and critiques from 60’s, 70’s film and video but most importantly a personal state of mind. Valerie Dumaine promotes simplicity with an edge that polishes a style to a special one. Fabrics and textures vary; her design’s are structured and constructed. Dresses and coats are favourites!           

A rather groovy personal state of mind!


Mission: Contemporary and accessible pieces that will forever last with love. Valerie Dumaine designs beautifully for young professionals and creative industry women that represent original identities.

 It is not what you wear; it’s how you wear it!

Conception, designs and creations that are entirely Montreal made and affordable is highly appealing, Montreal should be proud!

I have worked with Valerie Dumaine promoting her collections at a few past events of locally made Montreal design, and must reveal that she’s worked hard and deserves all the credit she can get.                                                                                                   

Memberships to countless local creative communities…  designing for others… 14 years of experience later she longed to inspire others by designing for herself.  And so she did.

2004 was a turning point for this young professional’s design days.  She started selling her pieces to 4 locations, then 8, and multiplications continued until this demand for exclusive Valerie Dumaine Design unravelled. Her collections can be found in 33 stores across Canada today.

Soon to be out is a 18th collection, a rather proud one and a promotional fiesta should take place by the 20th. A great objective yet attained is to open a signature house one day, a boutique I can call my own. Perhaps in the near future to celebrate this 20th collection… She sighs!
