Montreal Fashion Week: The Parties

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!

Guy Laliberté’s worldwide concerts from space!

Matt & Nat Bag Throwing: Do not try this at home

Ok, so I spent the last week telling you how I was gearing up for Matt & Nat’s free bag giveway I even bragged about the helmet and kneepads that were going to ensure my success, yada yada yada, etc, no need to quote me, please. Well . . . The bag throwing has come and gone, and I’m at home nursing a sore ego. There. I admit it. I didn’t catch a purse. Actually, I did, until a crazy woman ripped it out of my hands and dragged me on the cement, walking away with MY prize, and leaving me to find the shoe I had lost in the battle.
