CV x Fashion and Design Festival 2016

Citizen Vintage is very excited to be participating in the Fashion and Design Festival this Thursday, August 18th at the MAD scene (corner of Jeanne Mance and St Catherine Street aka Quartier des Spectacles) at 8:15PM. We have put together a mix of vintage, reworked vintage as well as Citizen Vintage collection pieces in an attempt to showcase our summer to fall transitional pieces from the shop.

For those of you that are not familiar with the event, Festival Mode et Design is an annual fashion event that helps to celebrate and promote the Montreal fashion scene. The festival is about showcasing new designers via runway as well as host conferences with well recognized fashion insiders such as Jeannie Becker and Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist. This will be the shows 15th edition and they expect a turn out of about 500 000 people. We can't wait and hope to see you there.




The models will be sashay-ing down the runway to the beats of the one and only, Radiant Baby, who will also be entertaining the crowd with a live performance right after the show. We can't wait!

We cannot talk about the show without talking about our amazing models! Like our shop, we like to work friends, local artists and CV family members whenever we can. So we thought we introduce them
