Montreal Fashion – Start Up Fashion Week Expands to Montreal – Le grand lancement de Start Up Fashion Week Montréal

Montreal Fashion

On July 29th, we had the chance to attend Montreal fashion Week’s (SFW) preview party at Bord’elle in Montreal,  celebrating the expansion of this not-for-profit. Established in Toronto, SFW is now launching their second location in the beautiful city that celebrates its 375 years.

This Montreal fashion event production is not only producing runway shows, but also giving opportunities to those who are starting in the industry to learn and connect with the appropriate people. So, the emerging talents really benefit from the opportunity. Founder Jodi Goodfellow said, there’s no other similar event that specially focus on the first steps in the world of fashion and that’s why Startup Fashion Week has a lot of potential.

What makes Montreal Startup Fashion week different than a normal fashion week is there’s also a fashion technology aspect and some business conferences. At the end of the week, local creators will finish beautifully with a runway “signé” by them.

Last Saturday, SFW gave us a nice taste of what is to come with a fashion presentation and few speeches by the whole team and some Canadian designers.

Startup Fashion Week is coming to Montreal on September 13th to 15th and on October 16th to 20th to Toronto. Fashion addicts will be pleased. Stay tuned!

Le 29 juillet dernier, nous avons eu la chance d’aller au lancement de Startup Fashion Week au bar le Bord’elle à Montréal. Nous avons donc festoyé le lancement de cet évènement à but non lucratif. Originaire de Toronto, SFW se lance maintenant à la conquête de la merveilleuse ville qui célèbre ses 375 ans cette année.

Cet évènement de production mode ne produit non seulement des défilés, mais donne également des opportunités à ceux qui font leurs premiers pas dans l’industrie d’apprendre et d’être connecté avec des gens pertinents. Les talents émergents pourraient alors bénéficier de cette chance inouïe. Comme la fondatrice Jodi Goodfellow a dit, il n’y a aucun autre évènement du genre qui focalise précisément sur cet aspect. C’est pourquoi Startup Fashion Week a énormément de potentiel.

Ce qui rend SFW différent d’une « Fashion Week » normale c’est qu’il y a un aspect concernant la mode techno ainsi que des conférences sur le commerce. Et quoi de mieux que de finir en beauté avec un défilé par des créateurs d’ici.

SFW nous en a donné un très bon avant-goût samedi dernier avec une présentation mode ainsi que quelques discours donnés par des designers canadiens ainsi que des membres de l’organisation.

Startup Fashion Week s’en vient à Montréal du 13 au 15 septembre et du 16 au 20 octobre à Toronto. Les amoureux de la mode seront servis. Restez à l’affut!
