LaSalle College is a proud partner of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) and excited to specially collaborate in its major fashion exhibitions Thierry Mugler: Couturissime and Montreal Couture which will be held from March 2 to September 8, 2019.

During this time, the MMFA will also hold an exhibition of LaSalle College student creations in the Boîte à Couture.

Inaugurated as a world premiere in Montréal, the exhibition devoted to the internationally acclaimed French designer, Thierry Mugler, will feature some 140 creations never exhibited before in a spectacular scenography.

Presented in conjunction, Montreal Couture exhibition will showcase the talent of 10 contemporary Quebec fashion designers, 6 of whom are former students and alumni of LaSalle College: Marie Saint Pierre, Denis Gagnon, Helmer Joseph, Ying Gao, Fecal Matter (Hannah Rose Dalton and Steven Raj Bhaskaran) and MARKANTOINE. The exhibition is curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot, who has specially selected the creative masterpieces fashioned by LaSalle College students.

"It is only natural for us to partner with the MMFA for these exhibitions because we are training the next generation in fashion. We are proud to exhibit the unique creations by our students, especially since they will not only be among the works of Thierry Mugler, but also Quebec fashion icons such as Marie Saint Pierre, Denis Gagnon and MARKANTOINE," mentions François Bousquet, Director of the International School of Fashion, Arts and Design at LaSalle College.

LaSalle College students will also be hosting three collective design workshops during events at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The first activation took place on Saturday, March 2, as part of the Nuit Blanche event.

In 2019, LaSalle Montreal College celebrates its 60th anniversary and this partnership with the MMFA is part of the festivities surrounding it.
