Puces Pop Official Launch Party and Fashion Show

Posted by Jeff / October 3, 2008

2008100208_popfashion1.jpgStaged as the official kick-off to this year’s Puces POP festivities the first Annual Fashion Show took place last night @ CODA CLUB. When the doors finally opened, crowds gathered in quickly to surround the chairs in which formed the on the floor runway. The event showcased six emerging designers working in Montreal today. They were asked to create a 6-look mini-collection. Then they were judged by a jury of fashion pro's[working folk] to select the most innovative designer to receive the Emerging Designers Award of $2,000 bucks!!. This event was presented in part by Le Château.[ they dished out the money] Yet it's cool to see a big brand like that get down to grassroots fashion. The crowd was excited and in a good spirits to see the show even though it was running late. The snacks provided went in seconds, the event was hosted by award-winning comedian Peter J. Radomski. I didn't think he was too funny, but he had one or two moments. [He's the short guy in the suit in the slide show] Clothing ranged from sickly basic to over the top innovative. A big shout out goes to local blogger Marilis Cardinal from the local website pregnantgoldfish. She coordinated the entire evening. Thanks sister!

Indeed! Dane and I met when we were both studying fashion design. I've always been convinced by his talent and asked him to participate in the show and clearly the judges also appreciated his vision!
