– at the Quartier des Spectacles.

Every year, many well-known Canadian designers, retailers, up-and-coming creators and international fashion icons will share their art and vision with the public. The activities include fashion shows, live creative sessions, design showcasing and musical performances. The Fashion & Design Festival’s presence will also be felt around the city with novel exhibits, original installations and unique experiences open to all.

For four days and four nights, Mode & Design’s gleaming program showcases renowned Canadian designers and the biggest international fashion brands, but you won’t want to miss the latest creations from independent Montreal designers!

Explore dozens of temporary shops strewn around Place des Festivals, featuring Montreal brands both indie and established. You’ll also find beer tents and beverage counters all over the site for bubbly and martinis best enjoyed runway-side.

With 50 shows, as much as 300 participants and 550,000 visitors expected, the Fashion & Design Festival is a leading platform for fashion, design, music, beauty and shopping trends.
