Fashion schools in Québec

The Fondation de la mode de Montréal awards bursaries to Canadian citizens with a diploma in fashion from one of the following institutions:

• LaSalle College;
• Cégep Marie-Victorin;
• Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy;
• École supérieure de mode de Montréal.

These educational institutions are recognized by the Québec ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche et de la Science. Each year, graduates of various fashion programs are turning to the Foundation in order to get a scholarship that will allow them to study in higher educational institutions in Quebec or abroad.


LaSalle College /

In 1989 LaSalle College initiated Montreal’s Fondation de la mode. LaSalle College was founded in 1959 by Mr. Jean-Paul Morin, considered to be the father of fashion in Quebec. This institution paved the way for the fashion and clothing design industries in Canada. The school is actually recognised for the quality of its training in this field. LaSalle College students, graduates and alumni regularly achieve top honours in contests, fashion shows and fashion galas.In 2014, four Fashion Design program students from the International School of Fashion, Arts and Design swept the top four prizes of the TÉLIO Les créateurs mode de demain contest. The LCI Education network accounts for 21 campuses across eleven countries.

Cégep Marie-Victorin /

Surrounded by a huge park, Cégep Marie-Victorin’s numerous pavilions make this Quebec public school a dynamic student city. A fur option gives this Cegep’s Fashion School an exclusive charm among public colleges. In fact, the students have the opportunity to participate and stand out at NAFFEM (North American Fur and Fashion Exposition), as was the case in 2010 when two students won the “Grand Prize” as well as the “Design Prize” chosen by a jury made up of fur professionals. More recently, during TÉLIO’s Les créateurs mode de demain contest, five students finished among the 25 finalists and one of them earned the “Creativity” distinction.

Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy /

For the last 30 years, the Fashion School of Campus Notre-Dame-De-Foy established an undisputable reputation. Located right next to the St. Laurence River and Lac Saint-Augustin, in Quebec, this fashion school offers an appealing setting to its students. The quality of the education it offers and the relations it maintains with surrounding companies are among the values shared by school personnel. In February 2012, Alexandre Bertrand, fashion design student at Campus Notre-Dame-De-Foy, won the contest for designing the Society of outdoor recreation establishments of Quebec (SEPAQ) uniforms. His uniforms will soon be worn by the employees of the Gîte du Mont-Albert, a well-known hotel in the Parc national de la Gaspésie.

L’École supérieure de mode de Montréal /

The École supérieure de mode de Montréal was founded in 1995 in downtown Montreal, in order to meet new training needs created by technological progress and industrial upgrading. The institution has developed a unique university program in North America, which is experiencing a national and international recognition and leads graduates to positions of importance in direct contact with the world of fashion.
