ALICAT Avril Lemieux hails from a long line of seamstresses and tailors. Coming from a family whose values are based in love and hard work, she was taught from a young age that if you want your dream to be a reality, you must make it happen, no one will do it for you. With a strong will and a devotion to hard work, she fearlessly strove to become the designer she is today. Though on a steady climb since 2007, ALICAT’s turning point came in 2011 with the presentation of her “From The Gods” collection at Couture Fashion Week in New York.
To say ALICAT is gaining momentum is putting it mildly. In 2011 she was featured in Inprint Magazine and at The Muse Awards. Photographers, bloggers and fans continue to follow her in her wake. She feels that with the support of her family and friends, combined with showing at Couture Fashion Week, a gateway has been opened. As she’s fond of saying “I have a great team and we are here because of each other.”
