Fashion Jobs – Montreal Fashion Week f/w ‘13 – PREVIEW

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

January whizzed right by and we are officially getting ready for the coming of many fashion weeks. Paris Couture Fashion Week just finished up and back here, at home in Canada, we are all anticipating what is to come at Montreal Fashion Week. Designers have been very busy putting together their collections for Fall/Winter 2013, which will be featured at The Arsenal, the city’s contemporary art complex, February 4th to 7th. Known for its variety and quality, many have been anticipating this season’s MFW ever since it was announced by producers Groupe Sensation Mode, in collaboration with P&G Beauty & Grooming, that there will be several new features for the fashion community to see.

One of these brand new highlights will be the Fashion Premiere – a presentation of over 20 fashion films that will be taking place every night at 8:00pm in the MFW Cocktail Room. The concept of combining cinema and fashion is just one of the many ideas that MFW is trying to create as a more unique experience for attendees coming from all over the world. It should also be mentioned that some of the fabulous events are FREE such as the History of Fashion events at the McCord Museum taking place now until February 6th.

This season’s roster of designers features a group of men and women who have been known for creating looks that represents Canada’s fashion scene from all different aspects:

Montreal Fashion Week, 21st Edition

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

After years of shining the spotlight on our city’s unique eclectic style, Montreal Fashion Week recently celebrated its 21st anniversary. From September 6th to the 9th, fashion lovers flocked to the Mecca of all things fabulous, as runway shows were held in the Old Port at the stunning Marché Bonsecours.

Organized by Sensation Mode, the event gave us a sneak peak into the most exciting trends for the upcoming seasons, as Canada’s brightest and most promising designers showed off their talents.

Denis Gagnon, Philippe Dubuc, Marie Saint Pierre, Barilà, Travis Taddeo, Cluc, Dimitri Chris, Simon Chang, Annie 50, Anomal Couture, Soïa & Kyo, Anastasia Lomonova, Andrew Floyd, Dinh Bà Design, Mélissa Nepton, Iris Setlawke, Label Europe, and Duy (among others) all presented their Spring/Summer 2012 collections.

Of course, the front row and post-show VIP lounges were the stomping grounds for Montreal’s fashion elite.

Spotted? Denis Gagnon himself, sitting pretty in his high drama black frames at Travis Taddeo (the Lasalle College grad’s collection was all about stylish feathers, fantastic capes, distressed denim, black leather, and transparent blouses).

Denis Binet was also surrounded by hot young fashion things. The consulting stylist for Pantene Pro –V and his team were busy doing hair backstage.

The runway shows were all breathtaking and the event’s energy, even more so. Everywhere you turned there were daring outfits, free-flowing bubbly, gazelle legs, and flashing lights. There is no doubt that when Montreal does fashion, they do it right.
