La Montréalaise sweater an instant hit for designer
Sabrina Barilà is a Montreal designer who usually makes feminine clothes out of fine fabrics.
So it came as a real surprise to her when a design that she created on a whim became an instant hit.
Barilà made a simple cotton sweatshirt, with a bow tie and the words "La Montréalaise. Live the life you love."
It sold out within a day of being posted on the designer's facebook page.
Barilà guesses that a sense of pride about Montreal is part of the reason the shirt has been so popular.
So what is the lesson she has learned as a fashion designer? "Do more things just for fun."
Listen to Sabrina Barilà's conversation with Cinq à Six guest host Raji Sohal.
