Montreal’s most sought-after fashion sale, “La Grande Braderie de Mode Québécoise”, takes over the city from April 15 to April 18! If I know you at all, I know discounts up to 80% on designer clothes are enough motivation for you to throw on your prettiest heels and tackle the cobblestones of Old Montreal.
“Montréal is a place that, when you’re driving out the next day, chances are you did something the night before that you shouldn’t have…” says Hawksley Workman, over the phone from a tour bus making its way towards Quebec. Workman, the Juno-award winning singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer, starts laughing and cuts himself off before saying anything more incriminating.

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.

Montreal Fashion Week is right around the corner again, which means plenty of amazing shows to attend at the well-known Bonsecours Market. Personally, I love the fact that Fashion Week unravels in historic Old Montreal, giving it a unique touch of European glam. But what I love even more is that Montreal Fashion Week is so accessible for people who are not fashion industry professionals!
Rarely have I been so excited and felt so much raw and positive energy in my life! Why? Because my fellow Quebecker, Guy Laliberté – who is also the founder of Cirque du Soleil – is currently billions of miles away, in space, getting ready for a massive global event called Poetic Social Mission. To be held on October 9th, the event is aiming to raise awareness about the issues facing our planet’s clean water supply!
