Support and celebrate Montreal’s most promising fashion students and graduates in a three day event which will include a book launch of our upcoming publication, design reviews, a workshop, fashion shows, an award ceremony and a popup minimarket.
LIGNES DE FUITE is a non-profit association whose mission is to support Montreal’s most promising fashion students and recent graduates by providing them with guidance, resources, and a platform through which they can gain both local and international recognition.
To achieve this goal, we produce an annual print publication* showcasing the works of young creatives through interviews, editorials, and case studies on the future of fashion. This educational project aims to bring together emerging talents and our growing network of established mentors who engage strongly with cultural and social issues, and who understand the importance of investing in the next generation of industry leaders. The print publication resulting from this collaborative effort is launched at an annual fundraiser event and then distributed at cultural centres and libraries around the world.
In keeping with this mission and in partnership with PHI Centre, LIGNES DE FUITE will be hosting a 3-day event from July 16 to July 18 to launch the publication and raise funds for grants that will enable recent graduates and fashion students to continue improving their skills. This celebration of young talents will include fashion shows, a design workshop, a book launch cocktail, a talk with the authors, design process critiques by an esteemed panel of industry leaders and an award ceremony. In addition, throughout the three days, there will be a Popup minimarket offering to the public an eclectic range of products by emergent local and international designers, artists and chefs.
This year's event represents a unique opportunity to breathe life back into Montreal’s creative community following this long and challenging period from which we are finally coming out. Moreover, your support will directly contribute to our cause and will help drive the momentum and emergence of fresh talents who are essential to the vitality and diversity of Montreal’s fashion ethos.
