Vivi Towers, Content Creator & Fashion Assistant – Montreal @vivitowers
Originally from Columbia, Viviana Torres AKA Vivi Towers has spent the last decade in Montreal assisting veteran stylists Cary Tauben, Jay Forrest and Tatiana Cinquino, and working with brands like Vans, H&M, Frank & Oak and Mackage through her own content creation. Landing in Canada, Vivi’s first goal was to learn both English and French and pursue fashion, and there is no better spot to do all three than in the slice of Europe that is Montreal.
On why she loves Montreal:
“I love Montreal, and discovering it for the past ten years has been an amazing experience. I have gotten the chance to work with amazing brands, and meet inspiring people which led me to my mentor Jay Forrest. I’ve been working with him for 5 years and constantly keep learning and being inspired by him, the other creatives in the city, and Montreal’s magic.”
