Dear FMD Diary…

Hot off the heels of a strong kick-off day for this year’s Festival Mode & Design, day 2 of the festival got off to a strong start. The weather had cooled, if only slightly. The crowds, fashion and events at Quartiers de Spectacles however did not cool down one bit.

Here we have a man who has a undoubted talent behind a camera lense. Anyone who follows the Le21eme blog onlne, or on instagram knows his style of shooting & can get the impression of a bystander looking into the fashion world around us.

Adam spoke about his style & how that came to be. Inheriting his first camera at the age of 12, Sinding has capitalized on his skills behind the lense shooting the sights around us. Those not-so common, candid shots of the fashion world offer a different type of insight to those like myself with little knowledge of the fashion world. A very real & authentic insight.

Highlighting the Montreal vibe, conference attendees got treated to some fantastic shots taken around the Quartier des Spectacles grounds while he roamed about earlier in the week. A definite inspiration to pick up a camera and start shooting the world around as we see it. Not posed. Not filtered.
