Montreal Festimania 2011: Festival Mode et Design – Ethik BGC

Ethik BGC is a collective of designers and artisans committed to social and ecological fashion design. I caught the end of their catwalk show on the Scene de L'Esplanade stage at Festival Mode et Design.

On Friday I was sad to miss the Cégep Marie-Victorin student show at Festival Mode et Design, which was purely down to me being a bit slow and not realising until too late that there were in fact two stages on McGill College Avenue.

As soon as I realised why there was no action on the main stage I hotfooted it up to the Scene de L’Esplanade stage, set against a fountain with a glorious backdrop of glistening skyscrapers. I just managed to catch the end of the catwalk show from Ethik BGC, a space dedicated to ‘disseminating, promoting and providing training on ethical fashion and sustainable development projects by female entrepreneurs.’ The group compromises over 40 socially and ecologically committed designers and artisans.

Take a look through the boutique and gallery on the Ethik BGC website.
