Denis Gagnon on the Montréal Fashion Diaries

Posted on July 2nd, 2009 by .

DENIS GAGNON is the Montréal designer who attracts the biggest crowds during Fashion Week. I must have spilled at least two Dirty Martinis last season just trying to wade through the crowd gathered for his 2009-2010 Fall-Winter collection.

He’s the sweetheart of Canadian fashion, a leather genius and, as I found out when he welcomed me to his home’s secret garden, a very humble, down-to-earth and charming man.

In this second edition of the Montreal Fashion Diaries (the first being an interview with his then-stylist RAD HOURANI), I talk to Denis about his collaborations with Harakiri jewellery and the fantastic bags he designs for Fullum and Holt.

Oh, and I totally got the scoop on the collection he’s working on for next season… Check out his adorable reaction, it’s to die for!

PS. Denis is known for rocking the oversized black-framed glasses…I found out they are a gift signed Lanvin, offered by no other than the amazing RENATA MORALES
