Leading Design Heats Up
The Runway at MFW19 : Montreal Fashion Week
What better way to embrace the heat of a Montréal summer than with sizzling thoughts of the hot couture of the next Montréal Fashion Week! The 19th edition of MFW – headlining at the Bonsecours Market from September 27th to 30th, 2010 - might be a few months away yet, but it's already taking top billing as the cool season's most influential fashion event in Canada.
In collaboration with P&G Beauty & Brooming, the country's fashion capital is once again getting ready to play host to four days and nights of the hottest in Canadian and international design. MFW 19 highlights its unique status with a deluge of fashion shows and not-to-be-missed events that continue to reflect the event's true identity: an icon of leading design.
LE SHOWROOM OPENS TO THE PUBLIC FOR THE FIRST TIME!
Made possible once again by the ministère du Développement économique, de l'Innovation et de l'Exportation du Québec (MDEIE — Department of Economic Development, Innovation and Export Trade), Le Showroom has now become an institution unto itself and an indispensable element of the Montréal Fashion Week experience. This sixth edition will see 60 leading national and international designers set up shop, welcoming buyers and industry from around the world on September 28 and 29 to interact with them and with their collections, establishing and reinforcing important business relationships in a creative yet professional environment. And now, for the first time ever, the general public is invited to soak up the atmosphere that Le Showroom previously reserved for industry only! On September 30th Le Showroom will open its doors to fashion lovers from all walks of life to experience.
MFW 19 DESIGNER SELECTION COMMITTEE
In an ongoing effort to respond to the needs of the fashion industry and promote the success of its designers, Sensation Mode created The Designer Selection Committee. The committee came together to face the challenge of narrowing down the selected participants for MFW 19 and Le Showroom. This season the committee welcomes Nathalie Atkinson, Journalist National Post; Stéphane Aquin, Curator of Contemporary Arts at the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts and Mélanie Robillard, co-founder of boutique Unicorn. Watch for the list of the lucky participants which will soon be announced!
