Festival Mode & Design ends tonight with Dom Rebel runway show








Yesterday I had another fun evening at Montreal's Festival Mode & Design. Nice sunset, big yet chilled-out crowd, a nice golden light. Can't say I loved the particular show I saw, Point Zero - but hey, that's what I get for showing up without checking the schedule first...
 

 Point Zero runway show


After that came a better show, called Défilé de la Diversité Corporelle. A really cool concept: casting models of different shapes and sizes to celebrate bodies that don't necessarily fit into the mold.

Truth be told, I was there to soak in the atmosphere, rather than actually pay close attention to the clothes on show, so all was good. Funny that the crowd at the VIP area was far more stylish than anyone I saw on the catwalk - have a look:
