Fashion POP was held in the basement of St. Édouard church last week, as part of the POP Montréal music festival’s 10th anniversary opening party. The festival has provided a forum to showcase young up-and-coming designers since 2007.
As always, Fashion POP was way more fun and relaxed than your typical fashion event, with not a wine glass in sight and beer served in plastic cups. DJ Cadence Weapon provided the soundtrack as six emerging designers presented mini-collections that showcased everything from a giant pink umbrella to a hood that doubled as a face mask, metallic gold pants, and intricate knits.
Campeau closed the show with light flowing dresses paired with structured jackets that could easily have gone straight from the runway to the Montreal streets. She was crowned winner by a panel of industry judges that included WORN’s Montreal editor, Emily Raine, and last year’s winner, Natasha Thomas. In addition to her WORN feature, Campeau was awarded $1,000 and a $500 Le Château gift certificate.
