Welcome to F.F.A.T. Snaps, a weekly summary of fashion, art and tech-related events we’ve attended, and other random musings in and around Central District and Greater Montreal.
Another week, another round of discovery! Here’s what our Week 16 looked like.
ESM 2017 Runway exposition
Wednesday April 19th at 5 pm, Salle polyvalente du pavillon Sherbrooke de l’UQAM
DCMTL had the pleasure of attending the fashion design and management students of ESG UQAM’s end of year presentations event. The event was sponsored by Groupe Dynamite, and showcased the innovative creations the future leaders of the fashion industry had to offer.
We had the opportunity of partnering with Enfant Bohème, one of the 25 inspiring industrial management and fashion marketing projects. Enfant Bohème’s concept provides a new alternative for modern families. To be brief, their concept involves renting high end clothing for children.
The catwalk portion of the event was amazing and the collections were sublime. It was high fashion that truly takes your breath away. We wanted to take the opportunity to congratulate all of the teams, it’s clear that Montreal still has talent in abundance. This event was truly an opportunity to discover the fashion trends that will be taking over the industry in the coming years.
‘Soirée Inspire – Cocktail & art’ at the Matthew Namour Gallery
Thursday April 20th at 5:30pm
This event, hosted by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, was organized by the organization’s newly formed Youth Ambassadors committee, whose mandate is to bring together hundreds of young professionals from the Greater Montreal area, to encourage them to get involved with and contribute to an important cause in their community. They feel as though it is important to demonstrate that young people can have an impact society and can be a driving force towards progress.
The evening was a huge success, and provided an ambiance that truly led to meaningful networking. All the elements fit so well together. Good music and good food flowed throughout the night, while guest were able to enjoy live painting. The Matthew Namour Gallery was the right choice of venue. The art was right up our alley, and we were absolutely touched by Sarah Berjaoui’s speech, who was brave enough to share her battle with Lymphoma with the crowd present. This courageous woman, has recently become the spokesperson and the communications director for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. Congratulations to Sarah, she is a true inspiration.
