The curtains may have already closed on another
fabulous Montréal Fashion Week, but the powerful impressions made on the
unprecedented numbers of national and international audiences continue to
resonate around the world. More than ever, MFW has solidified its niche position
of leading design with this 17th edition and reinforced the message that it is a
fashion extravaganza not to be missed. Over three days from October 13th through
15th, more than 18,000 fashion-lovers were treated to the highest-quality
productions from the most talented designers on both the local and international
scenes. Guests flocked to the runway in hopes of grabbing a seat to witness the
famous names of fashion putting their finest on display. No detail was
overlooked as every designer delivered a world-class show truly worthy of the
widespread attention it commanded. Over 200 staff, including makeup artists,
fashion and hair stylists and volunteers from the fashion school were invaluable
in ensuring that the 30 designers on the schedule and 60 Showroom designers all
got their well-earned moment in the spotlight at MFW 17.

The collection showcases the Gascon’s art of living, in honor of the world
famous French way of enjoying life. It promotes living life to the fullest and

genuine, traditional and high quality clothing.
Andy Thê-Anh brings the Spring-Summer 2010 collection to a new level. Creating
new garments based on the fusion of the ethereal and the solid architecture that

emphasize the new silhouette, which is never remotely severe or austere in shape
or spirit. The jacket takes the central stage this season; it appears with
textured fabrics with touch of shimmer. The result: a collection with a
reinvented architectural elegance, a new structural silhouette and archetypal
Andy Thê-Anh sleekness.

Gagnon : For his Spring 2010 Collection, Denis Gagnon, always faithful to
his muses: leather and muslin, invites us for an incursion in the
phantasmagorical universe of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. Just like in the cult
movie of the famous German director from the twenties, the industrial element is
ubiquitous in Gagnon’s fashion. Meters and meters of large metallic zips, or
sometimes narrower and flexible plastic zips, charming and delicate, turned away
from their original purpose to become inspiring decorative accents. Placed
superbly on a collar and resembling an oversized necklace, or set as a piping to
highlight a soft silk top, as you would find on a fine shoe, or sometimes
twisted intentionally to limit the thickness of a skirt waistband, providing a
striking look, all in black nylon.
