I've been away from my blog not because of my lack of interest in fashion but because of my interest in fashion! For the last month of my life I've been directing and organizing this year's POP Montreal Fashion Show. Six very talented independent designers showcased their collections and competed for a Young Designers Award valuing $2000 sponsored by the clothing company, Le Chateau. Highlights included LA rapper, Giovanni Marks (aka Subtitle), strutting his stuff on the runway in a bather from Toronto-based clothing company Minnow. It was truly a pleasure to work with all the creative people that helped make this event a success. Please check out the Puces Pop website link for a peak at the designers who showed in this year's fashion showcase.
Anomal Couture (designer, Sonia, featured third from left with some of her designs) was judges' top pick. An Anomal dress is beautifully made, well-constructed and fits like a glove you wish you never had to take off.
