S A R A H S U E M A C L A C H L A N BIO
Sarah Sue MacLachlan (she/her) has had fashion running through her blood since the day she was born. Born a prairie country girl growing up in rural Manitoba, Canada, (on Treaty 1 Territory close to the Brokenhead Ojibway Nation) but always with big dreams of fashion.
Sarah started sewing at age 5, started industry training at 15, and at 18 worked at Nygård International’s head office in Winnipeg. After a couple years her travel itch set in and she moved from Winnipeg to Vancouver.
In Vancouver she completed her degree in Fashion Design and Technology at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (name from the Kwantlen First Nation) Which is on unceded traditional and ancestral lands of the Kwantlen, Musqueam, Katzie, Semiahmoo, Tsawwassen, Qayqayt and Kwikwetlem peoples.
She then helped form the fashion company Chloë Angus Design where she spent the next 10 years as a Business Partner and Director of Operations. She helped grow the company from the little studio in a home basement up to a mid-sized company that now sells across Canada and the USA.
After 10 years in Vancouver, her home back in Winnipeg and her family started calling her name. Sarah left her life and career in Vancouver and headed back to her roots in Winnipeg. She then had a year-long sabbatical where she spent her time touring the world with her backpack, volunteering and giving back to the community, teaching at MC College in the Fashion Department and spending time with her family. After having her heart and head full of new, exciting ideas she set to work creating SARAH SUE DESIGN.
