THE IDEA

Trends Connection was born from a simple but meaningful question: How to connect the different actors of the Quebec fashion, between them and their audience, to make them shine?

 

It is from this idea that Gabrielle Ferland, its founder, began to activate and expand her network in the fashion industry. Determined to bring together the community of fashion lovers, she surrounds herself gradually with talents and complementary experts, all convinced by the quality of local know-how and its potential for success.
