Montreal Fashion Week 2011, Semaine Mode Montreal- Part 1

This past Wednesday and Thursday, I took time off work and attended the Montreal Fashion week with Sophie, LoveK, and Rania. It was a great experience. With the cold and gloomy winter weather, being minimal with earthy tones was the trend on the runway. Here is part one of Montreal Fashion Week on Pop Champagne Blog.

Mulcair was launched by Juliana Benett after her graduation at Parson's New School of Design. The line is minimalistic and sophisticated. Each piece is timeless and can be worn in different seasons and to various locations such as going to work or having a weekend brunch with friends.

! Nu.
Nu Fashion by Vickie Joseph is fun and cater to a wide audience. It was wonderful to see models of different sizes and shapes looking great walking down the runway in Vickie's creations. From bold prints to sequins, each outfit is definitely street chic.

Samuel Dong
Samuel Dong has established itself in North America's fashion market since the start of the collection in 2006. Floral and water color prints were seen throughout Samuel Dong's collection on the runway. It is clear that Samuel is not afraid to mix prints and create drama.

Envers by Yves Jean Lacasse is very distinctive and consist a lot of shiny and lace. The collection was consistent to what I saw at his previous show at Fashion Cures a la Mode. Yves Jean Lacasse likes to drape the materials and loves to enhance the woman's figures through the waistline.

Here are some other pictures from the night. I had the privilege of meeting Vickie Joseph from Nu Fashion, she was incredibly sweet. It was neat that the lounge consist a make up booth to help you with your make up so you have no reason to look fug pugly at the show I guess? Thanks to make up artist Tomoko from P&G that I looked amazing in all my pictures- she did a wonderful job.
