Quebec is gearing up for the Chicago Collective (www.chicagocollectiveonline.com), one of the most important menswear shows in the U.S. and Canada, which will go from August 11th-13th. Several original lines from Montreal will be on display, including classy ensembles from this edition’s featured Quebec company, Ballin (www.ballin.com). To help kick off the event, Quebec co-sponsors the opening night reception by providing Molson beers.
The Chicago Collective happens twice a year within Chicago’s Merchandise Mart, a hub for the fashion industry. Its counterpart, the women’s apparel show, Stylemax , will also be held there from August 10th-12th. Montreal lines get significant exposure at this event as well.
