Moving from the West Coast of Canada to the East Coast has now provided me with the opportunity to attend FashionWeek events that won't be recalled as pitiful, pathetic and shabby attempts by middle-aged nouveau-riche women or upper middle-class earthy types to toss their lot into the FAST PACED and EXCITING world of haute-couture. The three competing elements of Vancouver's Fashion Week were 1) designs with the De Marcos family in mind, 2) designs for people interested in yoga/the outdoors, 3) ghastly "Pacific Rim"-flavoured pieces (with a smaller population of young people attempting to rip off streetwear pieces they'd seen within the pages of Nylon magazine four months ago)...
Events take place between February 1st and February 4th. Unfortunately, both websites are skimpy on the details, but you could probably pick up one of the either French language or English language weeklies in Montreal to get the specifics about events, times and locations. I'll post as much here as I can.
