Veronica was born into Canada’s Celtic culture. She grew up surrounded by sewing machines, patterns and fabrics as her mother, successful Cape Breton kiltmaker Rosemary MacIsaac, crafted outfits for Veronica’s highland dancewear and kilts for her brother, noted piper Matt MacIsaac.
The MacIsaacs, in both professional and competitive capacities, have been a consistent presence at highland games and gatherings in Canada and abroad. It was this familiar environment that spurred Veronica’s interest in creating modern, wearable clothing that proudly announces the wearer’s own heritage and style.
Veronica’s collections have graced the runway of important Canadian fashion events (Atlantic Fashion Week, Ottawa Fashion Week, Mercedes-Benz Start-up Competition), Tartan fashion events (Dressed to Kilt, and From Scotland with Love in New York City) and been featured in widely-read circulations (British Vogue, Vogue Italia, Celtic Life magazine, Scottish Banner magazine, Flare Magazine, and Fashion Magazine. Veronica MacIsaac has singularly established a flourishing career, proving that tradition, taste and tartan are alive and thriving in both the Celtic and fashion world. Each piece is a uniquely personal creation, produced and perfected in her studio.
