The Festival Mode et Design is singing, being inspired and catwalking down the runway in order to display our identity, our differences and our authenticity. This year the motto was to dare and have fun, all with local pieces of international reach. Here are the highlights as well as our favorite creations of the designers.

A few words from the co-founders…
“It’s an ecosystem of 200 creative Montrealers and about 20 economic leaders from Downtown that allow the FMD and Montreal to rock once more. ” – Jean-François Daviau
“The festival believes deeply in sustainable and responsible fashion. The one that we recycle, the one that we upcycle, that we swap, the one that gives way to diversity, the one that is created locally, artisanally, the one that makes our families work, the one that inspires us. ” – Chantal Durivage
