Presented in conjunction with the retrospective Thierry Mugler: Couturissime and curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot, this exhibition pays tribute to the talent of 10 local creators and collectives.

Montreal Couture is the first exhibition to bring together the creations of three Quebec fashion icons: Marie Saint Pierre, with her precise, timeless cuts that marry style and function; Philippe Dubuc, whose debut collection reinvented menswear; and Denis Gagnon, who swept the fashion scene with his irreverent style and haute couture approach. The exhibition is also an opportunity to discover the distinct world of stylist Helmer Joseph, who blends elegance, romanticism and savoir-faire with his Haitian roots; creator Ying Gao, who mixes industrial design, architecture, robotics and sensory experimentation with interactive media; Marie-Ève Lecavalier, winner of the prestigious Chloé Prize; and duo Fecal Matter, formed by Montrealers Hannah Rose Dalton and Steven Raj Bhaskaran, who combine fashion, music and performance.

Up-and-coming fashion designers will also be showcased in the modern and technical streetwear of Atelier New Regime, the bespoke suits of Nathon Kong and the gothic-exotic style of MARKANTOINE.
