MONTREAL - As some of our readers already know, we are currently in Montreal, attending the fabulous Fashion & Design Festival and discovering the most stylish places in the city as part of our collaboration project with Tourism Montreal.

Some of the highlights of our trip include staying at St Paul Hotel, Canada's first Design Hotel located in Old Montreal (355 McGill Street), visiting Ecksand Jewelry showroom (1255 University Street), having delicious lunch at the outdoor terrace at Boris Bistro (465 McGill Street), and relaxing at the fashionable Bota Bota spa (358 de la Commune Street West).

And there is of course the Festival itself... six exciting days filled with fashion, art, and music. Our favourite catwalk show so far included Vancouver-based designer Roxanne Nikki who presented an elegant collection of winter wear yesterday evening.

For the latest news and updates, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter. We will be bringing you detailed information about selected places shortly. In the meantime, enjoy our photo diary featuring first two days in Montreal!
