M&N on the move!
The first ‘official’ office of M&N on Chabanel (the fashion district of Montreal) was an 800 sq ft space with a reception area, showroom and ‘assembly’ room in the back. After my landlord got fedup of seeing UPS trucks pull up to my apartment, I figured it was time to take the next step, that was in the winter of 2001. That spot supported myself, Manny and our only employee for 2 years. We would move 2 more times before settling into our current digs at 225 Chabanel.
We’ve made many friends and memories on Chabanel in this metropolis of rags and glass and have seen developments with the city investing in some great projects over the last 2 years. Montreal is the fashion marketing center of Canada and remains one of the top 3 fashion cities in North America after LA and NY.
At the end of the year we are going to Ville St. Laurent, Deslauriers, just off rue Lebeau. Once again going back to our roots, we’re moving to a ground level spot with trees and grass to house the M&N family, ironically enough, it has the same feel as my first apartment, in a good way
