As part of this year’s incredible showcase of Canadian designers from the Festival Mode & Design, LaSalle College is bringing some of their famous alum together with the recent 2018 grads for one astonishing runway extravaganza, COLLEGE, on August 24th.

Establish designers are coming back to support their alma mater, notably the Marie Saint Pierre House, Dinh Ba Design, Duy for Mountain, Markantoine, Rush Couture, Betina Lou, Marmier, Harricana, Canadian Hat, Jerome C. Rousseau, MIKAELD, Oscar Mendoza, Pascale Labelle, Anomalous Couture, WRKDEPT, V-Franz, Valérie Dumaine, and Xian. The show, produced by Groupe Sensation Mode will be on the main stage next Friday at 9:30 pm.

 

COLLEGE is part of the tradition of the FMD late-night schedules. Under the artistic direction of Andrew McNally, this highly anticipated event will showcase the works of recent graduates who will take inspiration from their predecessors for a symbiosis of generations. It aims to highlight the amazing talent educated at LaSalle and establish a path to success.

LaSalle College is located in downtown Montreal and is the largest bilingual college in North America and houses six specialized schools, including the International School of Fashion, Arts, and Design. For more than 40 years, the fashion program run through this school has been supporting young designers as they dream of launching onto the global stage. The program, offered in Canada at Montreal and Vancouver campuses, is a member of the LCI Education network, which has 23 higher education campuses on five different continents. This gives unparalleled visibility and mobility opportunities to fashion hopefuls, who may want to grow and learn in foreign markets such as Barcelona or Melbourne.

If you are unable to make it to the show (but, c’mon – clear your schedules! You won’t want to miss it!), festival-goers will have the chance to admire the creative projects of students and grads in an installation in the heart of Place des Festivals. This kiosk will not only show off their work but provide insight into the students’ trajectories and ambitions. It will run from Aug 22-25th.
