So Day 1 of Fashion Week has passed, and we can't say it was all that thrilling. We've always attended day 2 and beyond and now we know why! Day 1 is nothing like the rest. Besides the overall vibe of lacklusterness... there were not too many fashionable people that caught our eyes or our camera.
Us outside Marche Bonsecous, ready for some fashion!
We did however see some of our fabulous fellow bloggers, including the ever sooooo fly Miss Sly, Super sweet Audrwey from Jeans & Stilettos and cutie Modern Antoinette... all looking fab as usual. For this edition of Montreal Fashion Week, we brought along with us, photographer, Hugo Trottier of SuperStarsPhotos Agency, who took his place at the end of the runways to capture all of our wonderful photos.
Montreal Fashion Minds & Miss Sly
Our first show was Muse by Christian Chenail. It was typical Muse and nothing in particularly really stood out for us. The models had huge manes of crimped hair and metalic makeup. The color palette mostly consisted of black, grey, navy blue (typical of the fall/winter season). He encorporated some bold prints for pazazz, and accessorized with hats belts and scarves. It gave us a sense that were stuck in Russia... but in 1995, lol.
Besides that unsurpassable disappointment, some pieces were pretty fab. She had some architectural, structured l jackets that reminded us of samurais. The models didn’t quite impress us either... super weird walks... and the on and off lights... NIGHTMARE on St. Paul street...
Helmer had a host of local celebrities walk the runway in true Helmer style. The show was very fun and lively, unlike SS10 which was grimmer with its funerary theme.
The men were absolutely dashing and really worked it out! They looked fab in plaid shoes, dapper coats and tailored pants. The women looked amazing in signature Helmer patchwork designs, and hair that seemed to be inspired by Snooki from Jersey shore. lol
It kept us intrigued, smiling and entertained, and you can never go wrong with Fashion for a cause! We truly admire those, who utilize their talents and success to help those less fortunate. Bravo!
A demain Fashion Lovas!! xox
