Do it like Canadians!

While Canadian Fashion is increasing rapidly year by year, H217 website was created in order to include portfolios, creative ideas and profiles of people who work in the fashion industry!

Rémi Guertin
, Photographer and Creator of H217, answers our question about what is H217:

“The idea behind H217 is to join content and portfolios, which is uncommon on the web. So the heart of H217 is the «salles de nouvelles» (news room) where to find fashion blogs, information about museums, expos, world news, jobs, etc.

Fashion designers have a special place because their RSS feeds are gathered on H217. They appear on the front page and they have a dedicated search engine.
For other professionals, H217 is offering the traditional «casting calls», a place for presenting expositions and the «projects» page where members can talk about their ongoing projects.

H217 is written mainly in French, there is just enough English websites for one to find its way, although in the news room is RSS Feeds are gathered in French and English too.”

From our part we have to say that H217 is a great idea of internet promotion and let’s hope that soon we may see a website like this one in Greece.
Should sponsors think about that too?

Special thanks to Rémi Guertin for his interest in burningstages and for the time taken to describe H217.
