Made with Love Atelier in Memory of Lee Alexander McQueen

In collaboration with the LABoratoire Créatif and the Canadian Mental Health Association, Made With Love Atelier is presenting an event in Montreal today that will honour the memory of the late Lee Alexander McQueen. Five Canadian designers,  Cluc Couture, Chiara, Jean-Paul Corbeil, Héricher and Helmer will create haute couture looks in front of the audience.  The passion and intense creative energy intrinsic to a designer’s studio will be on stage for all to view.  The outfits created will later be photographed as part of the evening events.

This fundraiser for the Canadian Mental Health Association will take place at 207 De la Commune which is adjacent to the Pointe-à-Callière Museum. Tickets are $15 for access from 3 to 5 pm or $25 for access for the evening 3 to 11 pm. Profits will go towards increasing mental health awareness.

The late Lee Alexander McQueen committed suicide in February of this year. Although his bouts of depression and anxiety were common knowledge, it only recently was revealed that he had attempted drug overdose twice before. If you live in Montreal, support mental health awareness by attending this event.
