Myriam
Belzile-Maguire
Founder and Designer
Maguire Boutique

Footwear design has been a lifelong passion of Myriam Maguire’s. For

as long as she can remember, she knew she was destined to design

shoes. After pursuing a degree in Industrial Design at the University of

Montreal, she went on to complete a diploma in Footwear Design at

Cordwainers at the London College of Fashion. Following her studies,

Myriam was selected for a residency in Italy at Fabrica, the United

Colors of Benetton research centre, where she worked with several

international brands. Upon her return to Montreal, Myriam joined the

Aldo Group, one of the world largest footwear retailers, where she

designed over 3000 different styles of women’s shoes, many of which

became bestsellers. This work involved significant international travel

to Asia, Europe, and the US for market research and manufacturing

oversight, and has afforded her a unique end-to-end understanding

of the footwear production process. In 2016, Myriam decided to forge

her own path and launch her very own footwear brand with the goal

of offering high-end luxury goods at accessible, competitive prices.

By cutting out the middlemen and bringing marketing and retail inhouse,

she could make a high quality product at a price that’s fair.
