Origins of the name
FAURES is the French root word of “blacksmith”. Its origin not only describes the process of forging metal objects from the fire, but also refers to creativity, imagination, and invention. We want the clothing of FAURES — just like the women we dress — to reflect this duality of meanings: powerful and confident, yet elegant and refined.
We are FAURES.
Flexible and durable clothes
FAURES is a maternity-friendly women's clothing collection. Our clothing adapts to women’s bodies as they change throughout pregnancy, allowing expectant moms and new moms to feel confident, stylish, and powerful.
FAURES focuses on beautiful and timeless designs for women, pregnant or not. What's our secret? We use minimalist and effortless silhouettes. We also work with only the finest fabrics, to ensure that our clothing are durable, easy to wear, and easy to clean.
FAURES is proudly designed and manufactured locally in Montreal and its surroundings.
FAURES is the love-child of lifelong friends Maude Morneau Paquette and Sophie Poulin Martin. Maude is a fashion designer who has worked in both Toronto and Montreal. Sophie is an interaction designer based in Montreal.
The idea of FAURES was conceived in 2016 during Sophie's pregnancy, after experiencing the limitations of the maternity clothing market. She dreamed of a clothing line that was timeless, that would fit her growing belly, and that she would still want to wear after her baby was born. Fast forward to 2018, and FAURES’ first fall/winter collection was born.
