They had panelists, they presented testimonies, social workers came to discuss about their work in the field of mental health, they invited special guests such as Billy Parker from the Montreal Alouettes. They brought the best hosts in the entertainment world, the one and only Malik Shaheed and Catherine Diamond from Breakfast television They made sure that between the glamour and the catwalks, you can have a better idea of what causes mental illness and the consequences it has on people’s lives especially if they don’t have a support system. «Rip The Runway» is far from your average fashion show because it makes you wonder how YOU can do more for the community as well.

«Fashion For A Cause»

THE SCENERY WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD

It was literally what’s the game been missing for a while in various fashion shows in Montreal: the «entertainment» factor. We were slowly getting used to the new formula where models have to look very serious when they hit the runway and the crowd has to stay as silent as possible in order to make a quote on quote «professional» fashion show.

The organisers of «Rip The Runway» decided to add their own flava to the mix. The models were having fun on stage, they were dancing and smiling at the crowd, we saw some sick body painting, caribbean music was blasting through the speakers and the crowd kept asking for more with their laughter and cellphones flashing.

They had suits, blazers, lingerie, bikinis, accessories and many other gems for you to come back at home inspired. The beautiful models were on a mission and really presented the pieces for what they were, colourful, with incredible details and the organisers of «Rip The Runway» made sure that EVERY designer has a spotlight.

«To date, they have produced sold out events attracting: public figures, media, high level entertainment, with a cumulative attendance of 1600 and donations of over $18,500!»

THEY GIVE BACK BEYOND THE DONATION

«Rip The Runway» also offered many prize draws such as a trip to Jamaica, a 1 year of rental of a Mercedes-Benz and a tablet. Besides anything material, the overall experience was a gift in itself.

Malefycia Is Restoring The Feeling, One Spooky Scream At A Time

Long are the days when I was cruising down the streets on October 31st either looking for candies to devour for 3 weeks straight or even as an adult looking for a popping club where I could tell people ”My costume is ME tonight”.

The truth is, I think Malefycia restored something that I thought was buried inside me. They reminded me that not only I liked Halloween but I just couldn’t find an alternative in my adult life to spark my curiosity on one side and get the thrill going on the other.

Malefycia been around for a minute but this year they’re trying something different…I mean different.

You’re familiar with the 7 sins in the bible don’t you? You’re aware of what a haunted house is supposed to be don’t you? Well, something in their team had the genius and actually vicious idea to combine these two things who might have nothing to with each other on the outside looking in but in this new adventure/haunted house experience; it all make sense!

their show called V7CE is cross theatre performance, cross the most scary thing you’ve ever seen. The show includes different scenes and interactive plays putting on the forefront the 7 sins from the bible.

What always stand out to me when it comes to Malefycia, is there raw and authentic attention to details.

Do yourself a favor and come immerse yourself in this universe and your inner child and your thrill-seeking inner adult have some fun.

The city has been quiet fashion wise over the years and as platform that mostly talked about fashion in its inception, we’ve felt it the most over here.

There would be sparks of hope here and there but besides Festival De Mode & Design, not a lot of things really stood out.

When I heard about ”The Glitch” it’s like I knew what it was about without nothing what it was about.

I mean good branding is good branding but it was more so who’s behind the good branding this time around. I had the chance to work with Myraï Lavoie in the past and one thing I can is : there’s a method to her madness.

Every artist has an eye and that eye is shaped by our views of the world and life experiences. Myraï had an interesting life.

One where being different is actually the move. One where if you don’t fit somewhere, you don’t try to get in the mold, you bend it.

For all the lack of support or misunderstand she got in Montreal, she found a place to be creative working or being in room with the likes of Paris Hilton & P. Diddy to name a few.

What she’s learned from coming out of her shell and experiencing the world she’s about the share it with us with her own fashion called ”The Glitch” tonight.

”The Glitch” is exactly what I thought it was going to be. A standout experience and experience and something you’ve never seen before just like its creator.

We are now entering an era where we want to know more about what is going on on the other side of the world.

How people are living, their culture and what is their reality compared to ours.

Sometimes the depiction of such reality is either unfair or made to look down at somebody. Other times, filmmakers have the challenge to depict a reality in a way to uplift what other cultures are bringing to the table.
