The Fashionistas of Montreal will be styling with an island flavor from Thursday, May 7 to Sunday, May 10 when the Montreal Caribbean Fashion Week hits the city this spring.

Another highlight of the Week will be appearances by Jamaican celebrity chef Anthony Mair of Caribbean Culinary Network (CCN) will debut several of his famous chocolate dishes, under the theme “Chocolate, Wine and Fashion.”
