There was a time, not too long ago, when Montreal had Montreal Fashion Week twice a year! Hélas Toronto has won the runaway capital but I still believe style is here!... my humble opinion. We also have another platform to show Montreal design talents, name the Montreal Fashion & Design Festival... and yet again it is no longer showing during the Grand Prix, but in mid-August! When the MFDF was coordonnated with our annual Montreal Grand Prix (#grandprixweekend) ! It brought all aspects of our urban fabric together: sports, culinary, arts, fashion, clubbing,etc...) and made our city shine for everything it truely is: A city filled and inhabited by beauty.
I have always been a proud born&raise Montreal girl, attentive to our many festivals and I was always fond of my fashion crowds. I always support all of my Art & Fashion crowd! ALWAYS I launched ERA Vintage Wear during the Montreal Fashion Week March 2005 edition F/W2005 shows. I did it with with a Big Bang because I wanted to share what I was doing with everyone that knew me. It worked out beautifully and if you refer to our Media/press section there are good write ups on it.
And over the last decades I have shown with both but I was always a fan of showing my work during the Grand Prix de Montreal because the effervescence energized me and I would sketch the look book (aka the artistic direction) and I would get carried away and even the Press kit had a gloss colored copy of the look book. I thought this way it tied my entire idea together and made it clear.
So it is Grand Prix weekend in Montreal & I have a strong desire to put on another show in a near future, because it is a wonderful way to share with all my ERA Girls! So don't be surprise if you get an invitation and I sure hope that some of you make it FRONT ROW of course.xx
