Montreal - The White Winter Fashion City
Québec is a vast land marked by winter. Itdominates life for several months each year. Quebecers have therefore learnt to combine fashion and the elements to create a stylish aesthetic. Québec’s largest city, Montréal, is the hub of the fashion industry – and one of North America’s major fashion centres. The city is a leader in all things creative and innovative, boosted by the influx of talented young people from around the world eager to make their mark in fashion and design. ‘Montreal – the White Winter Fashion City’ will showcase the work of seven of Quebec’s most exciting young designers.
