The exhibition Fashioning Expo 67 invites visitors to enter the world of Expo 67 and experience the effervescence of Montreal’s fashion moment. The exhibition will feature over 60 outfits —hostess uniforms from various pavilions, clothing by Quebec designers— and products from every sector of the Canadian fashion industry, including hats, gloves, umbrellas, purses, jewellery, and even fur.

The different sections of the exhibition will also display drawings, photographs, archival film footage, and documents. In addition, there will be videos of interviews that the Museum conducted with several designers from the era.
