In 2005, Hourani revolutionized fashion when, at the age of 23, he designed his first unisex collection, then launched his namesake label in Paris in October 2007. But Paris-based Hourani – who spends some four months of the year in Montréal, the city he calls his hometown – is more than a fashion designer: he is a visionary designer, artist and photographer, and his new multi-disciplinary exhibition of original artworks, Neutrality (Neutralité), at the Arsenal Montréal contemporary art venue, expands on his vision of a neutral world without boundaries or limits. What is your favourite pastime? Yoga and cooking. I love to cook. I also enjoy hiking and spending time with kids. I am the godfather of two children. How long have you been a Montrealer?

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL (JUNE 30-JULY 4)

The last weekend of the Montreal International Jazz Festival is upon us – and it’s a big one. Rain or shine (looks like shine), the fest starts off Canada Day weekend with jazz standards and not-so-standards and caps it off with our own version of 4th of July celebrations: a massive outdoor concert from the B-52s. All that jazz plus a visit from Will and Kate, a fest just for teenagers, and some truly beautiful, truly challenging art from American painter (and celeb in his own right) John Currin…

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL (MAY 13-15)

Sunny days are here again! Yet it seems that a lot of the fun stuff to do this weekend in Montreal requires indoor adventuring, especially at night. The FMX Challenge brings the outdoors – at least the dusty, dirt biking part of it – inside the Bell Centre, while the Israel Film Festival manages to capture the spirit of a nation (and its divisions) on screen. Plus New Yorks meets Montreal in dance, Beethoven moves in, and new media art that proves the future is now.
