Jean-Claude Poitras: Fashion and Inspiration

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

The exhibition 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 inspiration: family and religion, muses and film, and travel.

This joint presentation of the McCord Museum and the Musée de la civilisation will be shown at the Musée de la civilisation from June 20 to September 15, 2019, then at the McCord Museum from October 24, 2019, to April 26, 2020.

Not to be missed!
