Saundra Saulnier knew as a little girl that she would be a fashion designer. Taught to sew by her dressmaker grandmother, the French Canadian native designed and sketched all of her clothes, took classes in art and pattern making, and studied the world of retail to gain a comprehensive understanding of the diverse aspects of the fashion business.

After an auspicious beginning to her career as a buyer for a contemporary four-store chain in Montreal, Saundra became a merchandiser for the Canadian division of Esprit de Corps. Later launched her first line, PYRAMID in Hong Kong. This contemporary clothing collection was sold in the USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, and Australia, and reached sales of $5 million the first year. Saundra enjoyed equal success with her sleek SAULNIER/NO LOGO collection. In this collection she combined her devotion to exercise and health and her passion for design throughout five years of substantial design and fabric development to create a line of stylish yet functional performance and lifestyle clothing.
