Is Toronto's PACTfashion giving Montreal a run for it's money as Canadas fashion capital?
According to www.montrealfashionbizvie.com, we are. Here's a quote from a recent article:
LG Fashion Week may now be underway, but the Queen City’s true pride and joy is nowhere near the FDCC runway. Torontonians may have in fact found another way to give their local fashion scene a boost, and it’s something we Montrealers may want to consider some time soon. In the GTA area, there is a group called PACT whose mission is to empower at-risk youth, with almost no government funding. Recently, they’ve put together a real-world sewing and design school called PACTFashion, and they may very well have stumbled upon the smartest trend to hit the streets of our sister city in a long time.
I'm very excited to learn that PACT is making its message heard loud and clear - it isn't often that Toronto gets props from Montreal - and hopefully other cities will follow suit! Check out www.pactprogram.ca for more info!
