In partnership with Squarespace, the Fashion Marketing program's annual E23 event was presented on May 2 to a packed house, hosted by Debbie Zakaib. The evening was an opportunity to discover the innovative concepts of graduates putting into practice the knowledge and tools acquired during their three years of college studies, as well as tapping into their entrepreneurial fibre.

The four E23 experts, Inder Bedi of Bedi Studios, Pascal Cloutier of Simons, Eva Hartling of The Brand Is Female and Kim Mendelson of Kim&Co, were mandated to evaluate the entrepreneurial projects. The PERIOD team won the public vote for the best E23 business concept.

The event also served as a graduation ceremony, with several students receiving eight individual awards and scholarships in recognition of their academic or entrepreneurial excellence. The Prix alumnus E23 was awarded to Marilyne Gagné, a 1999 graduate who founded the successful company Dermapure.
