Looking Back at our Eclectik Fashion Show: Lighting Up Montréal One Show at a Time

Our Fashion Design graduates took over Place des Festivals with their creations worn by some 40 models and dancers who amped up the excitement during the Mode + Design Festival.

After shaking up Montréal’s Old Port with fabulous designs and hypnotic music during our SIGNATURE fashion show, the College once again lit up Montréal with a totally-new concept for our prestigious fashion show during the Mode + Design Festival.

Novel Fashion Show Concept Brings Out the Crowds

Eclectik, our annual fashion show held during the Mode + Design Festival, took quite a unique turn this year.

Set to the beats of a DJ battle between DJ FRIGID and DJ Plastik Patrik, some 40 models sauntered and danced their way around the College’s lighted booth and our multi-colored MixBus. This was nothing like traditional runway fashion shows.

Creations Highlight the Talent of our Fashion Design Students

Just like at our SIGNATURE show, the 40 models proudly wore creations made by Fashion Design graduates from the 2019–2022 cohort.

It goes without saying that these magnificent creations did their part to light up the Place des Festivals that night! It’s always a triumph for our students to see the outcome of their hard work come to life to be admired by hundreds of people.
