Montreal Fashion Week designers and their collections

Recently Montreal hosted its annual Fashion Week. Vancouver photographer Kim Akrigg now residing in Toronto went on behalf of Assignment Fashion to get a look at the shows and shoot the collections.
I am always amazed at the forward thinking of Canada##Q##s Designers and how each one takes into account their cliental and incorporates some of their regions style, while always searching for a greener alternative. We tend to dismiss Canada as a go to fashion country because we are a younger Nation and sometimes have an inferiority complex which keeps us from extolling the virtues of our artists.
This years Montreal Fashion Week only proves that Canada is at the forefront of cutting edge fashion and what better city the Canada##Q##s art Capital to showcase these collections.

Montréal Fashion Week was a great experience, especially as a new comer to this beautiful city. The crowed consisted of easygoing fashionistas who where very enthusiastic about being a part of the event. I didn’t have a problem meeting and making connections with people from the industry. It was so wonderful being at an event where people showed up 45 minutes before the shows to chat or just to lineup, Montréal seems to care about fashion and also want to push it to the next level. I believe that Montréal lives up to its reputation as an international fashion capital.

MFW brought lots to see to its viewers, from gallery presentation to theatrical demonstration to the traditional runway show followed by a standing ovation.  Designers have a lot to win by working with MFW, they truly go above and beyond to try and fulfill the designers need to ensure that its vision is carried through.
