Montreal is a buzzing city that always has something new going on. New bars and restaurants often get all the attention but I’m personally fond of discovering new businesses by young entrepreneurs who want to make a difference around them. ArtMtl is definitely one of those companies I was glad to discover. After attending and collaborating on events with this company, I can honestly say that this company is a positive contribution to Montreal’s artistic scene.
ArtMtl is a collective of entrepreneurs and artists of all kinds who have gotten together to promote and support each other. Together they create amazing events that range from art exhibitions to fashion shows. Their latest fashion show, Mode Montrealaise, took place in the middle of Place Ville Marie mall. Heads were definitely turning when the models wearing some pretty cool local designers strutted their stuff on the runway. In the words of ArtMtl president, Hamza Mejri, Mode Montrealaise is a fashion show to thrill the senses by combining a live rock band, DJ, paintings and fashion.
In addition to organizing great events, they also serve as an agency for artists looking to get their names out there. The members of this collective are a great representation of Montreal and the talent one can find here. Multicultural and multi talented are the adjectives that come to mind when describing them and the work they do. Keep your eyes open Montreal, there’s a lot more to come from Artmtl.
