The History of Quebec Fashion Since 1950 with Jean-Claude Poitras

Les Belles Soirées

In this lecture, designer Jean-Claude Poitras examines the last seven decades of fashion in Quebec. He leads us behind the scenes and retraces the moments, people and designers who have marked the Quebec fashion scene and its history. He makes us realize that fashion has a special role in bearing witness to the transformation of our society. Fashion trends have not only shaped our wardrobes, but also our mores and our openness to the world.

This lecture is presented in relation to the exhibition Jean-Claude Poitras: Fashion and Inspiration, on view at the McCord Museum from October 24, 2019, to April 26, 2020.
