After studying textile arts at Capilano College, Katherine Soucie founded her clothing company, Sans Soucie in 2003. Katherine creates innovative garments using reconstructed hosiery to produce clothing that is comfortable, functional, and figure flattering for women of all shapes and sizes. Katherine begins with unworn nylon hosiery, which she then hand dyes, deconstructs, silk-screens and heat sets before reconstructing into yardage and creating wearable clothing. Katherine’s pieces have been featured in national and international print and television media, and can be found in boutiques and galleries throughout British Columbia and the United States.
BC Achievement is an independent foundation established in 2003 that honours excellence and inspires achievement in British Columbia.
