Now that the madness of the Montreal Grand Prix is behind us, let us reminisce on the weekend. Thousands of visitors had the time of their life in the city. Martha Stewart tweeted that Montreal was a “large and clean city with a magnificent river running through it: the St-Lawrence”. She also tweeted that the food was really good, although I’m pretty sure she said that before getting a taste of her first poutine. Sir Richard Branson was spotted at Restaurant Primadonna and Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke, who is filming the movie Immortals in Montreal, was seen hanging out on the outdoor terrasse of Time Supper Club. Several parties were the talk of the town, but the reception held at Hotel Le St-James was probably the winner of them all.

260 hours is a lot of time. That’s 520 episodes of Sex and The City, but since there’s only 94 episodes, 260 hours would mean that you could watch all episodes from every season almost 6 times. 260 hours is also the amount of time fashion designer, Helmer, spent creating his latest hand-made creation, a stunning dress made of bristle, metal, beads, crystals and mostly….8000 glass tubes. That’s right, 8000 glass tubes! I haven’t seen such an impressive piece of couture in a long time. Because yes – I’ve seen it! Exclusively for the Montreal Buzz, Helmer kindly accepted that I get a sneak peek of the dress (thank you Helmer!) during a private fitting with his muse, model Sarah Jordan.

This edition of MEET A MONTREALER, features a one-word named, fabulous female: Azamit. Like Oprah or Madonna, the former model is entitled to only go by a single monicker, as she’s quickly becoming an iconic Montréaler.

One of her biggest events, STYLIST’S OWN (a stellar fashion buying event), is just around the corner. Here’s what Azamit has to say about Montréal.
If you are anything like me, the thought of shopping for new blue jeans is about appealing as licking a flagpole in the Montréal winter. This retail resistance changed last week when I had a soul-shaking-denim-fashion-epiphany at a Blue Jean shop in my neighborhood. Here’s how you can have your own transcendental experience…
Bondage, spanking, leather, latex, BDSM, anime, librarians, chubby-chasing, asphyxiophilia, body piercing, tattooing, cowboys, daddies, biker-dykes, policemen, school girls, Alexander McQueen shoes… This is a list of common fetishes, while also providing a GREAT way for me to optimize my search engine traffic. Just joking. Okay, not really. No matter what type of fetish gets you lascivious, Montréal has a store for you to get some hot new gear.
Christmas is around the corner, and if you’re like me, you’re racking your brains out to get your hands on the perfect gifts for friends, family and loved ones. Luckily, one of the greatest perks about travelling is digging out goodies that you won’t find anywhere back home!
