Montréal is à la mode. A fashionable city in its own right, it also boasts fashion schools, an industry packed with local designers and manufacturers, and a dynamic scene that exhibits local and international collections. With its vibrant cultural life and affordable cost of living, designers and artists flock from all over to be a part of Montréal’s hip fashion community. MontréalChic is the first book to document this scene and how it connects with the city’s design, film, music, and cultural history. Scholars Katrina Sark and Sara Danièle Bélanger-Michaud are intimately acquainted with Montréal and use their firsthand knowledge of the city’s fashion to explore urban culture, music, institutions, scenes, and subcultures, along the way uncovering many untold stories of Montréal’s fashion scene.

Review Quotes
New York Magazine
Montréal Chic traces the history of the predominantly French-speaking city’s fashion scene, as well as its relationship to other facets of Montreal’s artistic and cultural life. . . . Sark and Bélanger-Michaud aren’t as interested in the music of Montreal as they are in the symbiotic relationship between the city’s fashion scene and its art and culture. Their book chronicles the way that urban cultural life influences fashion and vice versa, tying the development of Montreal’s fashion scene intimately with the city itself.”
