1908 – 1987
Who was Marie-Paule Nolin?
Marie-Paule Archambault started out as a vendeuse for Raoul-Jean Fouré who had launched his fashion house in Montreal in about 1927. At the age of 26 she launched a dressmaking business on what would become the De Maisonneuve Boulevard. She received publicity early on through her participation in a charity fashion show at the Windsor Hotel, and after a trip to Paris where she visited several fashion salons, she came back to launch her own fashion salon at 648 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal in 1936. From 1941-1949, she ran a couture workroom, employing about twenty workers, in the department store Holt Renfrew from Montréal, where her creations could be purchased from the Salon Marie-Paule.
