6 Fashion Itineraries In North America


When I travel, one of the challenges is to find good local fashion spots. For sure, wandering around is a great way to stumble upon hidden gems, but being a bit of a control freak, it’s a strategy that’s a little too random to my taste. Moreover, it’s certainly not by typing “cool fashion boutiques” on Trip Advisor that I’ll find what I’m looking for (I tried).

So, what’s the best way then? Ask locals working in the creative field. In that state of mind, I started a new tourism series for La Presse +. Every week, 3 influencers from different cities in North America share their favorite fashion boutiques.

Here are all the links to access the original content. I hope you like it!

P.S. For the full experience (and to take a look at the beautiful photos), I suggest you download the La Presse + app.

P.P.S. All texts are in French, but you can easily pinpoint the different suggested boutiques ;) Who knows, maybe one day I’ll have time to translate the whole thing ;)
