By February 5, 2013

Exceptions aside, Montreal runways aren't exactly known for forwarding fashion, although insiders do admit Toronto Fashion Week is even deeper in commercial focus than the former. But, all things considered, there were clear gems sprinkled throughout Montreal Fashion Week's Fall/Winter opener yesterday evening as held at Arsenal, MFW's headquarters.

Houndstooth has been trending in abundance, with legions of celebs sporting the classic print at one time or other over the last year. Photo Evelyn Reid

A safe, commercially-appealing decision. Photo Evelyn Reid

Having had a chance to catch a few shows in person -- until I caught the sick-as-a-dog virus midweek, which led me to missing some key shows -- stay tuned for more finds as I peruse the goods in their entirety, as presented during Montreal Fashion Week.
