With the plethora of amazing movers and shakers residing in Montreal, we figured why not get them to open up a little and allow you to get to know the face behind the brand.
From restaurant owners to fashion designers and those making a difference in our community, every week we will be featuring someone new and giving you a quick and intimate access into where they eat, shop, chill, and of course, have coffee.
