Montreal is a leading city for innovation in the fashion industry. It is the third largest city in terms of textile production in North America, after New York and Los Angeles, and is the most renowned city in the industry in Canada according to some experts in the field. For these reasons, we are proud to be part of the companies that make up this sector of activity by offering products made in the Chabanel district of Montreal and also proud to be a member of the Metropolitan Fashion Cluster (mmode), an organization that helps us implement our projects.
The mission of mmode : la grappe métropolitaine de la mode is to bring together and unify fashion companies in the Montreal metropolitan region in order to make it one of the international fashion capitals. The organization offers assistance for local and international development and has more than 250 actors from several sectors in the fashion world in Montreal.
The organization's four main areas of work are the industry's image, the workforce, innovation and export. As the organization specializes in the fashion sector in Montreal, it offers a large business network in this sector from which TUKUAN benefits.
The Metropolitan Fashion Cluster also has an international presence at international fashion trade shows such as Magic in Los Angeles, COTERIE in New York and at an event at the Canadian Embassy in Paris. The organization also offers a digital guide for digital export strategies as well as international communication services to promote the city abroad. In short, we love them!
