Montreal Fashion Week-Night 1

Happy Fashion Week darlings! Things are in full swing here in Montreal. I’m balancing my first week back to school and my first Montreal Fashion Week all at the same time. I’ve been spoiled, I attended New York Fashion Week before and saw some amazing shows, so I had pretty high expectations for Montreal. I’m excited to report that those expectations were very well met and then some! The 21st edition of Semaine Mode opened Tuesday night and thanks to the lovely Patricia at 1Milk2Sugars and Rowenta, I had a pretty amazing seat for the Melissa Nepton show that evening. I love the vibe before the start of fashion shows, the air is so electric with anticipation for the coming presentation and that was the case before the Melissa Nepton show. Melissa is a young designer based here in Quebec but she is already garnering some major attention and her line is carried in numerous boutiques throughout Quebec and Ontario. The pieces she sent down the runway were all cut from a dreamy, neutral color pallette and exhibited Melissa’s fine attention to draping and construction. Clean, minimal makeup and hair allowed for the attention to be drawn solely to the clothing. The feel of the collection was etherial and futuristic all at once. Many of her pieces are perfect for layering and I look forward to working some of her pieces into my already overstuffed wardrobe. A big thank you to 1Milk2Sugars and Rowenta for a wonderful first night of Montreal Fashion Week…here’s to night two!

      I keep seeing all of these awesome events popping up and it looks like there are some amazing things going on in Philly fashion right now. The cover with Nicole looked gorgeous! I can’t wait to see your coverage (and your undoubtably fab outfits) of the Philadelphia Collection.

    I’m impressed by these designs too – I like the way that the clothes and draped and flowing in the later pictures – shorts are incredibly short this season too, aren’t they?! Lovely pic of you at the beginning. I’m a big fan of your fashion week outfits.

      Thank you, I was really impressed by the quality of the designers and the pieces they showed. After attending NYFW, I have to admit I had pretty high standards and Montreal totally met them.
