About Sarah Elder-Chamanara

Sarah Elder-Chamanara is the founder, creative director, designer and owner of Madame Premier, a feminist and political clothing company based in Calgary, Alberta. With the underlying principle of seeing more women and diversity in politics, elected and in back rooms, at every level, Sarah and Madame Premier create opportunities for conversations about why politics needs to change. 

Madame Premier is a one woman-owned and operated small business empowering women through the intersection of politics, feminism, advocacy and fashion. With the goal of amplifying the lack of women and marginalized communities in politics and the need for a variety of voices at decision making tables, Madame Premier is committed to not only helping women break the glass ceiling of politics but completely shatter it.

Sara holds a Bachelors of arts in Justice Studies. She has previously served as a Communications & Event Organizer for Calgary Confederation Liberal Riding Association. She also volunteered as Executive Vice President for Canadian Women Voters Congress in Calgary, as well as a Vice President and Communications and Event Organizer for Ask Her, a Calgary Based organization working to advance the principles of inclusive and equitable representation in municipal government. Sarah is also the mother of two young children. She lives and works on treaty 7 land here in Calgary.
