Fashion and Design Festival Montreal

It's that time again!  The stages and screens are ready, temporary tents set up and people are generally milling about listening to music, watching the crowds, and visiting the displays.

Paper dresses on display

This year the first major show, in collaboration with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, is a presentation of fashion from the 2011/2012 fall/winter collection of celebrated French couturier, Jean Paul Gaultier. (10:00 PM tonight).

Which reminds me…….

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is presenting “The Fashion World Of Jean Paul Gaultier – From The Sidewalk to the Catwalk” to October 2, 2011. The exhibition is getting rave reviews and the presentation is spectacular. (Quite honestly, there wasn’t anything there I could wear. Some people can get away with the spider web/feather/sequined look, but not me. I think you have to be tall). Still.

The Festival Mode and Design  runs from August 3 – 6 and there’s quite a schedule for you to choose from. Not only fashion – music (including Opera de Montreal), design, and nightlife.
