Montreal Fashion Week: The Parties

Posted on October 12th, 2009 by .

As mentionned previously, THE RUNWAY SHOWS OF MONTREAL FASHION WEEK are starting tomorrow. Yet what would be a fashion week without its lavish parties?
Rubbing shoulders with well-dressed celebs while Marie-Kate Olsen stirs your martini during New York Fashion Week does sound all glitz and glam.
“Oh hiiii, so what do you do? Mmhumm. Ya. Ok.”
Personally, the truth is that talking to fashion elite schmoozers who listen to you with one ear while they scout the room for somebody more important, gets on my last nerve.
In Montreal, we believe that fashion should be by the people for the people. Which is why some of the best parties of the week are free and open to the general public.
Here are the parties you shouldn’t miss:
1) The launch of DRESS TO KILL MAGAZINE
Tuesday October 13, 10pm, W Hotel, 901 Square Victoria, FREE (click here for the google map)
2) The DENIS GAGNON PARTY (the pictures of this post are actually from last year’s party. Denis is without a doubt one of Montreal’s most praised designer and if I had to go to ONE party, it would be this one)
Thursday October 15, 10pm, 901 Square Victoria, FREE (click here for the google map)
3) The SOÏA ET KYO PARTY with DJ Pierre & Lefonque
Wednesday October 14, 10pm, at Vauvert (in the Saint-Paul Hotel), 355 McGill, FREE (click here for the google map)
Have fun ladies, and drink responsibly! What’s the use of wearing a fantastic outfit if you can’t walk in it?
