The #mtlstyle image campaign is under preparation and the first activations are expected by the end of summer 2018. By then, discover the unique looks of Montrealers, photographed and questioned about their personal styles in recent months by our creative partner Sid Lee. Stay tuned for the campaign's official launch date and do not forget to use the hashtag!

New! Introducing the "mmode reçoit..." events
On July 3rd, mmode was pleased to receive Marilyn Bastien, a Cégep Marie-Victorin graduate and designer at Paul Smith in London. More than 20 members and fashion students joined us to hear about her impressive and inspiring career in the British luxury industry, during an exchange led by Mona-Lisa Prosper and Noëllly Sam (Fashion Unfold).

Following the success of this event, the mmode team launches mmode reçoit... a networking event featuring a special guest, to be held every 4 to 6 weeks, and accessible to mmode members, students, teachers and fashion enthusiasts!

Workshop on short and professional training
In order to ensure closer collaboration between training institutions and manufacturing companies in the Montréal area, the mmode Cluster, through its Human Resources Working Group, has brought together representatives of Peerless Clothing, Les Confections Stroma and Tricots Maxime, as well as the Compétences 2000 Training Center (CSDL), the École des Métiers des Faubourgs (CSDM), the CSMO Textile and VestechPro.

Peerless Clothing, a building partner of mmode, welcomed the group on Friday, June 29th, to discuss the various training programs available to improve the training-employment match in the fashion industry.
