LKisEvents: Montreal Fashion Week, Day 1

DSC_0011-3

My first day of Montreal Fashion Week this season, was jam-packed and I knew that if day one was any indication, I was in for a busy week!

As a P&G Beauty Blogger for Montreal Fashion Week, I got front row seats and back stage access to see all the great preparation and fashion. The whole experience was super-fun (did I mention I also got an adorable little boxed lunch!?).

The first show I saw was Dinh Ba: With tons of texture and print (that was everywhere on the Montreal catwalk) and a tribal component. While some of the prints were a little too geometric for my taste, there were some interesting textured elements. I was totally into the electric coloured opaque tights, a little bit of styling I will be integrating into my own wardrobe, for sure.

Here are some highlights from the show:

My next show was Melissa Nepton and it was obvious that most of the audience, like myself, was impressed with this show. A ton of pieces in basic black and white were highlighted with a peach and nude color pallette. Silhouettes with tons of movement, made for a modern, fresh and totally wearable collection (I really enjoyed it).

The piece-de-resistance was a pair see-through pallazzo pants that would be so hot on a spring jaunt to somewhere warm.

Before the last show, on day 1 of Montreal Fashion Week, I got to go backstage and see the masters at work, creating the looks for the Dimitri Chris show. The action back stage was organized and chill, and the inspiration was nautical (a dewy look across lids made for a fresh wet vibe).

Then it was time for the waterlogged Dimitri Chris show. A tailored nautical and preppy theme graced the runway and finished with the crowd-pleasing “I’m on a Boat,” by The Lonely Island…if you’e never heard it, have a look and then have a listen
