Check it out f'reals. It's like, gonna change your life, or at least your ensembles. popmontreal.com
"Fashion POP: The Annual Puces POP Fashion Show and Emerging Designers Award is a competition in which six up-and-coming Montreal couturiers each put together a streamlined six-look collection and present their work to a panel of industry professionals."
In completely unrelated news, here's a video that makes me think I need to learn more finger dances to be even more badass. (Ahem, fingerdances. That's right, I said it.)
