Montreal Fashion Week Round Up: Day One, Spring/Summer 2014

Montreal Fashion Week Round Up: Day One, Spring/Summer 2014

Day one of Montreal Fashion Week was yesterday and it left me with mixed feelings. Although, the fashion was fantastic overall; the atmosphere was a little underwhelming. Recent opinion articles saying the future of Montreal Fashion Week is uncertain, coupled with the absence of some of Montreal’s biggest designers, have exposed the financial strains on designers in Quebec’s small, but fabulous, market. Although designers are still producing amazing clothes, the economic pressures are affecting the quality of some runway productions, which were sparse to say the least. Most included a quick video intro and some generic electro/instrumental runway music.

In saying that UNTTLD’s video intro was gorgeous: a girl in various states of undress, smoking a cigarette, looking forlorn. It was really quite visually arresting. I also loved the makeup at Melissa Nepton’s show. Her models wore bright yellow eyeshadow and exaggerated pink blush. Pedram Karimi’s painting-inspired prints were among my favourite pieces of the night.

Here’s a selection of looks from day one.
