Explore the sources of inspiration and the creative work of Montreal designer Jean-Claude Poitras.

The exhibition, Jean-Claude Poitras: Fashion and Inspiration, sheds light on the creative world of Montreal designer Jean-Claude Poitras. It takes a look at the man who left his mark on prêt-à-porter in Montreal and the rest of Canada over the course of a prolific career spanning more than three decades, from the 1970s to the 2000s.

Clothing, objects, archival material and multimedia displays reveal the designer’s personality and his three major sources of inspirationfamily and religion, muses and film, and travel.
