Jean-Claude Poitras, a great Quebec fashion designer, creates his collections using an intuitive and sensitive approach. Tuned to his own emotions, his vision of fashion has brought him both success and fame. To better understand his work and appreciate its true value, follow Jean-Claude Poitras on a journey revealing the sources of his inspiration.

This exhibition is a co-production by the Musée de la civilisation and the McCord Museum.

Between 2001 and 2017, Jean-Claude Poitras donated a significant amount of clothing, accessories and archives to Musée de la civilisation and to the McCord Museum. This exhibition consists of a selection from the two museums' collections of his most beautiful pieces.

The inspiration behind these creations fuels the ideas, lines, colours and materials that anchor emotion at the very heart of Poitras' collections, which come to life in a universe unique to his work. This approach provides the keys to recognizing the shapes and similarities between his inspirations and creations.
