“It’s a new start for MFW," said designer Christian Chenail. "I am very pleased to take part in a program that is inspiring and balanced."

"As the wind blows on fashion, as the water flows under the bridges of Montreal, years pass and creations do not look the same at fashion week in Montreal. The 25th edition is the best platform to showcase and promote our spring 2014 collection," said the Martin Lim duo.
