What do all Vogue-worshipping Montrealers have in common? They live for the delicious taste of runway heaven that accompanies Montreal’s annual fashion week. In the same vein as the seasonal New York, Milan and Paris shows (just on a smaller scale), the events presented by P&G Beauty and Sensation Mode usually cause quite a stir – serving as the daily nourishment of glitterati and style savants alike.
This year, MFW13 was held from Tuesday September 4 to Friday September 7. Runway shows have taken place at Marché Bonsecours for the last several years. However, 2012 marked the beginning of a new venue, the unapologetically underground yet glamorous L’Arsenal, located at 2020 William. The shows were numerous, with designers like Betina Lou, Marie Saint Pierre, Travis Taddeo, Denis Gagnon, and even Rudsak stealing the runway. The guests were stunning (no surprise there). Let’s just say that when it comes to fashion, Montrealers know how to turn it out.
Here is a look at one of Friday night’s runway shows, featuring the ever-classy and girly looks of miss Rachel Sin.
