About the Artist

Anne Mulaire

Andréanne Mulaire Dandeneau was born and raised in Saint-Boniface, Manitoba. She is of Ojibwa/French Métis ancestry. After high school, she studied one year in Environmental Design at the University of Manitoba. In 2001, wanting to pursue her post-secondary studies in French, she decided to move to Montréal. In 2004, she graduated with a Diploma in International Fashion Design from Collège LaSalle.

Prior to launching her company in 2005, Andréanne drew from her own contemporary dance experience and began designing costumes for dance troupes. She has been the costume designer for the Nafro Dance Company in Winnipeg since 2004. She was commissioned by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet to design an «Alexander McQueen inspired» haute couture gown to promote Ballet’s 2012-2013 season. In 2014, the Canadian Human Rights Museum commissioned her to design a shawl for Ginette Reno, who performed the national anthem, for the opening ceremonies. As an Indigenous designer, she had the opportunity to stylize Lisa Meeches, the host of APTN’S television series Taken for several seasons.

In 2016 she earned the Excellence in Aboriginal Business Leadership Award from the Asper School of Business.

In 2020, she celebrated 15 years as designer and manufacturer, right here in Winnipeg. Andréanne is committed to fair trade, environmental stewardship, and ethical business practices.

Today she operates as Anne Mulaire and continues to explore her Métis heritage.
