During the evening benefit for the Fondation de la mode de Montréal, Chantal Durivage and Jean-François Daviau, co-presidents of Groupe Sensation Mode (GSM), received a tribute from members of the fashion industry.

Durivage and Daviau were the guests of honour at the event, a privilege they share with past honourees, including Lise Watier, Salvatore Parasuco, Louis Garneau and Paco Rabane.

Groupe Sensation Mode’s contribution as producer of Montreal Fashion Week, the Fashion & Design Festival and various other events presented around the world were highlighted during the evening.

For the past 12 years, the myriad of GSM’s productions have attracted thousands of spectators, journalists, creators and opinion leaders from all walks of life. Its fashion and design events are among the most prestigious in the world

Founded in 2000, Groupe Sensation Mode is recognized as one of Canada’s most prominent names in the fashion industry. The group’s mission is to imagine, produce and promote world-class artistic and cultural events that revolve around the theme of fashion and design. The company has become an innovative platform that generates economic spinoffs valued at $60 million annually for the city of Montreal.

At the 24th edition of the Fondation de la mode de Montréal’s benefit, $100,000 in postgraduate scholarships was presented to designers of the next-generation. The Target Emerging Designer Award was also presented to Mélissa Nepton at the event. This $25,000 award is part of the Designers Fund, a joint initiative of Groupe Sensation Mode and Fondation de la mode de Montréal.
