Tuesday night was a big night for TÉLIO as we were showcasing and celebrating our 2014 grand finale Fashion Show at D Moment, a new Montreal platform for emerging fashion talent!
After spending 2 days with the 25 finalists coming from all corners of Canada, TÉLIO was eager to unveil the finalists’ designs to industry professionals, media as well as friends and family.
