Montreal Fashion Minds had the pleasure of attending the latest edition of Montreal Fashion Week at Marche Bonsecours last week.
This time, we were joined by our fab friends, and Montreal Fashion Minds associates, Andrea & Ruby-Chanel.

Unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts, we were unable to attend the first day of MFW, but made it for day two, to see the Eve Gravel & Soïa & Kyo fashion shows.
Eve Gravel hasn't been around Montreal Fashion Week for the last two years, but on Day 2 of MFW she was back with a vengeance. She mixed looks that seemed to be inspired by Heidi Ho meets Gillian's Island, with polka dots and pinstripes, lightweight rompers, ruffles, cream lace dresses, tulle lace trimmed shawls and amazing white lace knit headbands.
Her Parisian inspired Gothic Garconne look was a hit with black jeans, neck bow ties, shorts and sheer knee high socks, boyfriend blazers, and tons of sequins. It was a nice mix of masculine cuts with feminine details.
Lace, sequins, ruffles, sheer fabrics and leather seemed to be common link within all these amazing looks. The color palette was neutral with lots of grey, cream, black and blue. Our fav look of was the Glitzy sequin blazer... it was just beyond.
Her outfits were fabulous and most definitely wearable. All the shoes were supplied by Spring and they were super hot! Glad to have Eve Gravel back in our faces... and leaving imprints of fashion in our minds.
Soïa & Kyo opened up their show with local, French Canadian actress, Karine Vanasse. She set the tone for the show with a casual but classy retro inspired look. The 60's style coats paired with uber short shorts proved that skin is new it accessory.
The collection showcased fun and flirty candy-colored trench coats with over sized collars in blue, fuchsia and yellow. They paired them with super hot slouchy boots and cute geek chic glasses which seem to be outfitted on everyone that night!
The dresses were girly to say the least, but very chic and wearable. The models strutted their stuff in cute cotton frocks, silk mini dresses, basic cotton and seersucker shirts, shorts and shirtdresses and the most amazing brown leather jacket with an asymmetrical zipper.
They also wore some beautiful feather headpieces, socks with sandals, leather jackets paired with sheer flowy dresses and hot pants with trench coats. It wasn't our favorite show of the week, but none the less, Soïa & Kyo never seems to disappoint with their collections of fun, feminine outwear.
Montreal Fashion Minds had a wonderful time on the 2nd day of Fashion week. The Eve Gravel and Soïa & Kyo shows were great. They only made us look forward to going back for more fun, Spring/Summer 2010 fashions!
Stay tuned to read about the 3rd and final day of Montreal Fashion Week, you wont be disappointed! ;)
