Turning hose into clothes is a specialty of Katherine Soucie, an emerging Canadian clothing and textile artist/designer based out of Vancouver. Her current line, Sans Soucie, concentrates on creating nylon hosiery garments that embody the individualism of her customers. Katherine was introduced to the world of fashion as a child, creating inventive outfits from fabrics and vintage clothes. This flare for style eventually led her to study the art of fashion in London and Toronto, ON. But feeling limited by the fabrics and materials available to her, she decided to leave design school and focus her studies on creating new textiles.

While studying textile arts at Capilano College she came up with a concept that would guarantee her clothing line, Sans Soucie, and developed custom fabrics that were practical, functional and unlike any others. Katherine reclaims unworn nylon hosiery, which she then hand dyes, deconstructs, silk-screens, and heat sets before it is reconstructed into yardage. Once these processes are finished, the new fabric is then draped and cut on a mannequin to ensure a custom fit and design.  This process has resulted in the development of a material that is more stabilized, is less likely to pill or run, washable, functional not to mention comfortable.
