POP-UP DESIGNER: Three authentic and sophisticated designers
Having each of them presented at multiple high-fashion shows in Montreal and Toronto, the three fashion designers unite their talents to offer their products to the Montreal market driven by the urban culture scene and fashion community.
Wallo’s designs, thanks to modern and balanced cuts, are the perfect canvas for Marie-Andrée Wallot’s pictorial works of art. The women's collection includes silk Kimonos, maxi dresses, light and elegant cocktail dresses, vaporous silk scarves, as well as opaque and transparent silk pareo skirts flowing with movement. Wallo is a contemporary and expressive luxury brand for women's clothing.
Inspired by the women of the world and the pictorial works as well as the digital art of designer Marie-Andrée Wallot, Wallo develops and produces high-end clothing for the sophisticated woman who seeks high quality, exclusive and daring pieces. Visit Wallo.ca
XIAN's philosophy integrates high fashion luxury with wearable designer staples. The brand incorporates structural details and stylish shapes into its design aesthetic to deliver a sense of individuality in the accessible fashion-forward pieces deviating from the mainstream. Bold, Edgy, and Audacious... G.W.T.X. (Go with the X) is a division of XIAN, which offers a series of affordable and on-trend clothing for fashion forward young professionals and youths. Inspired by the principal luxury label Xian, G. W. T. X.'s concept and design aesthetic also delivers high quality products with a modern and edgy twist, yet it creates its own identity by being more youthful, minimalistic, and mischievous.

Based in Montreal, Canada, KQK is an urban Canadian fashion label known for its fusion of classic tailoring and high-end streetwear. An avid lover of music and travel, founder and designer Karen Quirion captures the independent spirit and willpower of the modern woman. Inspired by the brutalist architectural movement, Quirion constantly redefines her craft through the deconstruction of shapes and the experimentation of colors and material. As a result, the garments are not merely an end product - they epitomize a meticulous thought process that reinterprets the conventional division of space. Visit KQK.ca
Lindsay Clark, Founder and Designer of Corail Blanc
At the meeting of our trio, she absolutely fell in love with the brands XIAN-G.W.T.X, Wallo and KQK. Together, they decided to put up a spacious POP-UP Montreal designer boutique within Corail Blanc Jewelry. This magnificent boutique has been present on Saint-Laurent for 3 years and is much talked about in the fashion media. Very happy with her success, Lindsay tells us:
Through that time, we met and got to know our wonderful designers, women in the industry, and, of course, YOU - our amazing clients. We are beyond grateful to meet each and every one of you every single day, and experience together the excitement and joy in finding that perfect piece. The joy for me personally is when I see YOU leaving our boutique feeling absolutely beautiful and empowered, when I can see the confidence and glow shine after trying on and finding your perfect piece of jewelry! It is not just about wearing accessories – it is about wearing confidence, standing tall and being proud of who you are – feeling and being beautiful!
The Corail Blanc mission is to offer a unique experience with the pleasure of wearing curated handcrafted jewelry and accessories. Proud of their originality, the Corail Blanc collections blends well with the sophisticated designs of Xian, Wallo and KQK.
