Denis Gagnon

Denis Gagnon | Recognized for his eccentric leather cuts, his sophisticated tailoring and his outright fascination for everything that's unconventional, Denis Gagnon is, without a doubt, one of the most important Canadian designers in this day and age. A native of the Lac Saint-Jean region in Quebec, he has lived in Montreal for more than 20 years where he studied draping, tailoring and pattern-making at LaSalle College. When his training was finished, he was hired by Tristan America to design a line of leather garments. In the 80s, he joined forces with a team of local designers to do some freelancing work. In 1993, he is hired as a teacher at LaSalle College in Casablanca. The Moroccan experience is a catalyst and forever alters his creativity. Upon his return to Montreal, he works in the costume department for a variety of Canadian and international film productions.
At the same time he's working for the entertainment industry, Denis Gagnon starts designing clothes that bear his unmistakable mark, always striving to push further the limits of his boundless imagination. During this time, he creates his very first men's collection followed by a women's collection, a year later. With time, his characteristic style and his very personal vision of fashion emerge. His signature slashes, his use of unique fabrics and his underground influences are now legendary.
