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.
