Québec ready-to-wear popular in Chicago

Models at the MontréaL CollectionS fashion show.

This year’s edition of the annual “MontréaL CollectionS” fashion show, held at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago on April 5, was a definite success.

Organized by the Québec government office in Chicago (DQC) and Export Québec, together with a number of Québec clothes manufacturers, the event was part of Stylemax, the largest women’s wear trade show in the U.S. Midwest.

A crowd of over 400 people, made up of major U.S. manufacturers’ representatives and buyers, had a chance to discover 20 lines of apparel and eight lines of accessories created by Montréal designers and manufacturers. A number of promises to buy have been signed since the fashion show.

Montréal fashion designers and manufacturers are represented around the world under the joint banner “MontréaL CollectionS.”

In 2013-2014, the Québec fashion industry chalked up over $11.5 million in sales in the U.S. Midwest.
