« Quebec’s designers are among the world’s most innovative. They blend the old and the new, the traditional and the modern. They produce work that is influenced by American and European trends – but is completely unique, even provocative. » declared Shashi Caan, Founding Principal of Design firm The Collective and IFI’s current President.
More than 40 designs will be featured in the showcase FROM QUEBEC – In New York City, scheduled to open late September during an invitation-only reception where designers and other influential personalities from Quebec’s design industry will be present to discuss their work. This happening will be an exceptional opportunity to network and exchange ideas on design trends.
