Founder and Creative Director
Spending the first part of my career in fashion sales, I deeply
understand the need for women to look great and feel good in their
clothes. In the late 90’s, we still often had to choose between being on
trend but slightly uncomfortable or being comfortable and looking rough
around the edges. There just wasn’t a pant that would fit right for
every body type.
That’s why in 2001, I launched Lisette L Montréal with my husband
Neil. Our goal was simple: Craft perfectly fitting pants for every
woman. We started with a pair of black pull-on pants, ordered a few
thousand, and started offering them to our retailer network. They were
flying off the shelf! I can still remember filling in orders in our
kitchen with our son David, who is still by our side in the company. We
had met a need. The rest is history.
We have come a long way since that winter of 2001, but our obsession
with designing perfectly fitting pants has never wavered. Our choice of
styles, cuts and fabrics is always dictated first and foremost by fit.
We add texture and details to trusted designs that have been honed over
several collections. We select washable fabrics that will move with you
and agree with your busy lifestyle.
We are a family-owned Montréal company, proudly located in the city’s
garment district. Most of our styles are produced in Montréal through a
trusted group of local seamstresses from fabrics carefully chosen from
around the world.
We live to make you a great pair of pants so you can take on the world. This is the Lisette L way.
