Inhabited by an inexhaustible passion and a deep duty of memory, Jean-Claude Poitras proposes himself as a guide to show us the history of Quebec fashion, from the 1950s to the present day.
A key industry player, Poitras gives us a fresh and inspiring look back at the seven decades that have seen him grow and evolve as a designer. Taking us behind the scenes of this unparalleled industry, the designer brings us through the looking-glass and presents a summary of the successes, failures, and glorious hours of a world that is constantly reinventing and redefining itself. Beyond the clichés, his sensitive hand weaves a story that pays tribute to the pioneers, creators, manufacturers, retailers, and artisans that make up this fascinating universe.
Fashion designer, multidisciplinary creator, and visual artist JEAN-CLAUDE POITRAS is a leading figure in the world of fashion and design. A columnist, speaker, spokesperson, and trend-hunter with an insatiable curiosity, this born communicator has taken on the mission of democratizing design and promoting the importance of fashion in all its forms.
