THROWBACK THURSDAY 10TH ANNIVERSARY- A Recap of 2011

In 2011, the TÉLIO design competition refined its image by changing its name to Canada’s Breakthrough Designers, a nod to its primary mission of encouraging the emergence of Canada’s fashion industry.

Inspired by one of Canada’s natural masterpieces, the 2011 edition of Canada’s Breakthrough Designers allowed students to shine by paying homage to Canada’s Great North.  Between the bitter-sweet mix of the biting cold, the velvety softness of white snow, the imposing glaciers, and the dazzling northern lights, Mother Nature’s wonders were a powerful source of inspiration and creativity.

Hosted by Nico Archambault, widely known dancer and choreographer in Canadian and Quebecois show-business, the grand TÉLIO Fashion Show would again put in focus the hard-work of 25 designers from Quebecois and Canadian Schools. The jury was composed of Angela DeMontigny, Aboriginal Fashion Designer, specializing in contemporary fashion design inspired by her cultural heritage, Roxanne Doucet, Founder and Producer of Triptyque Agency, Chantal Durivage, Co-Chair of Sensation Mode, Noreen Flanagan, Editor-in-Chief of Elle Canada, Christina Reynolds, Managing Director of Elle Canada, and Jason Matlo, Fashion Designer.

See you next Thursday for another Throwback Thursday!

À l’année 2011, le Concours de design TÉLIO précise son image en changeant son nom pour Les créateurs mode de demain, clin d’œil à sa mission première, soit d’encourager la relève canadienne.

S’inspirant de l’un des chefs d’œuvre naturels du Canada, Les créateurs mode de demain permettra aux étudiants de l’édition 2011 de briller par leur création rendant hommage au Grand Nord canadien. Entre le froid aigre-doux, la neige d’un blanc velours, les glaciers imposants et les éclatantes aurores boréales, les merveilles de Mère Nature ne peuvent qu’être source de créativité.

Animé par Nico Archambault, danseur et chorégraphe fort connu du monde du showbiz québécois et canadien, le grand défilé TÉLIO mettra encore cette année en valeur le travail de 25 créateurs d’écoles de mode canadiennes. Le jury se composa d’Angela DeMontigny, créatrice de mode d’origine autochtone se spécialisant dans la création d’une mode contemporaine à l’image de son héritage culturelle, Roxanne Doucet, fondatrice et productrice de l’agence Triptyque, Chantal Durivage, coprésidente de Sensation Mode, Noreen Flanagan, rédactrice en chef de ELLE Canada, Christina Reynolds, directrice de Elle Canada également, et Jason Matlo, créateur de mode.

À jeudi prochain pour un autre Throwback Thursday!
