What better time than spring to say out with the old, in with the new! And if that means a wardrobe overhaul, Montreal makes finding a fashionable new look (or 20) easy and affordable at La Grande Braderie de la Mode Québécoise – otherwise known as the Big Fashion Sale of Quebec Designers, happening April 10-13. The renowned sale, held at the massive-yet-welcoming Bonsecours Market, not only gives shoppers a crash course in Quebec-made fashion, but samples and still-in-style liquidation items go for 50 to 80 percent off. While women’s clothing – from casual to corporate to lingerie – dominates the bustling sales floor, the Braderie also boasts an array of high-quality menswear, children’s clothing, outerwear, jewellery and accessories.
