Andréanne Mulaire Dandeneau was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba—Winnipeg’s thriving French quarter. She is the great-great-great granddaughter of Catherine Mulaire, who was born 1843. A daughter of a Voyageur and the first rural Métis teacher in the Red River Settlement, Catherine was also an accomplished seamstress whose embroidery continues to inspire the designs of Anne Mulaire.
Andréanne was raised to embrace her Anishinaabe/French héritage, respect all people, and honour the planet we share—principles that still guide her as a businesswoman and a designer. Her mother, Huguette, raised her to care deeply about the environment and, as a teacher, taught her to be proud of her Métis heritage. Her father, David, influenced Andréanne through his art. He brings his talents to the table by creating Métis prints for the company’s Heritage Collection. Today, Huguette and David still work by Andréanne’s side—motivating and inspiring her.
She is passionate about travel, dance, seeing the world around her with eyes and heart wide open. She seeks design inspiration from a multitude of global influences, always focusing on comfort, style, and passion.
Andréanne has been an entrepreneur since 2005, a year after graduating from LaSalle College School of Fashion Design in Montreal, one of Canada’s top design programs. Her earliest fans and customers will remember her company as MJ Anne Couture and VOILÀ par Andréanne.
Today she operates as Anne Mulaire. It’s a name she is proud to bear. It’s a label you’ll be proud to wear.
