Models at the MontréaL CollectionS fashion show.
This year’s edition of the annual “MontréaL CollectionS” fashion show, held at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago on April 5, was a definite success.
A crowd of over 400 people, made up of major U.S. manufacturers’ representatives and buyers, had a chance to discover 20 lines of apparel and eight lines of accessories created by Montréal designers and manufacturers. A number of promises to buy have been signed since the fashion show.
Montréal fashion designers and manufacturers are represented around the world under the joint banner “MontréaL CollectionS.”
In 2013-2014, the Québec fashion industry chalked up over $11.5 million in sales in the U.S. Midwest.
