I went to the last show at Montreal Fashion Week last night (Défilé tendance SMM19). It was pretty okay. The clothes, they were not for me, really, but the experience was pretty nifty. The tights were bright, the tailoring was unstructured. There was a lot of torn clothing, and fancy things paired with schlubby things. Some of the items can be seen in the first few photos here.
I had a good time, I think L did too. I’ll go again next year. Post-show, we were given a goodie bag. I love presents, so this was pretty awesome. I can’t quite wrap my head around what is fashionable about crackers and guru, except perhaps that it did seem to be the only thing some of these people had eaten in a while*.
My camera was not good enough to capture a lot, and I was in the fourth row so I got a lot of heads in what it did capture. The video of the final walk in tulle headdresses and tights came out better than expected, but sideways. I’m trying to figure out how to turn it right side up.

It poured rain, so I also had on my trenchcoat, and a borrowed umbrella. The umbrella kept my hair dry, but not much out. I have only seen it rain this hard once when I lived in Fredericton. I went outside to play in the rain on break at work and spent the next 10 hours dripping wet. It was pretty ace.
In my goody bag there was: crackers, guru, a man razor, two disposable ladyrazors, mascara, a pamphlet on the exhibit at the Eaton Centre of past fashion (which is gorgeous, you should look), a face cleaner, a moisturizer, a sanitizer for lipstick, gum, the bag it all came in and …. a visor. (?!?)
