Darquise Vien is a Métis woman from Northern Ontario, who has family ties to the Red River settlement. With the guidance of her mother since she was 12, she is mostly self-taught as a sewer. She developed her sewing flair and creativity after her daughter's birth, sewing unique pieces which were most inspiring and gratifying. Wanting to help her co-workers and their families during the pandemic, Darquise Vien sewed over 850 personalized face masks and many headbands. These two years, although overwhelming, allowed her to perfect her sewing techniques and strengthen her creativity with fabric. This love of garment fabrication has brought her to designing colourful traditional garments for children.
