Montreal Fashion Week
Montreal Fashion Week Spring 2014 was a season that brought about some big changes in the future of Montreal's fashion industry. On Day 3 it was announced at a press conference, that Montreal Fashion Week will be coming together with Fashion Design Festival in 2014 to strengthen the ties within the industry. In other words instead of 3 shows every year, the industry will be seeing 2 shows, fall-winter and summer-spring. It will be interesting to see this unfold, since this clearly is big news for Montreal's avid fashion crowd.
It has been quite a whirlwind week of fabulous shows and collections. The final day of Montreal Fashion Week exposed us to up-and-coming as well as established designers, with a little bit of friendly competition and a whole lot of love for fashion. But first a few words from Shilpa about the Harricana experience.
From start to finish, all of the shows on Day 3 of Montreal Fashion Week impressed me. All had something interesting to offer. Thus far, the next winter season in Montreal is looking like it's going to be a hit, where fashion is concerned.
Monday kicked off the first day of Montreal Fashion Week 24, which showcased diverse Fall/Winter 2013-14 collections from our city's most talented designers. Fashionistas made a beeline to 2020 Rue William at the Arsenal for an evening of couture.
The last show of the 23rd edition of Montreal Fashion Week was as expected - stunning. I loved every piece in the Anomal Couture collection, and would happily own them all if I could! For this evening, Sonia of Anomal Couture was kind enough to help me find something I loved. Read on.
We are now into the final two days of Montreal Fashion Week, and today seems to have been my favourite thus far. I had a hard time narrowing down images for this post, so will post the rest on FB, link at the bottom of this article. And this tweed jacket by Montreal designer Ralph Leroy was my style choice for the occasion.
From the highly eclectic collection of Denis Gagnon to the very practical wear-to-work collection from Iris Setlakwe, the 2nd day of Montreal Fashion Week had it all. Here is what we found...
