The Festival Mode & Design offers a couple of notable talks today at the MAC, including New York visual artist Scooter Laforge, whose fashion collaborations have been sported by icons like Beyoncé and Rihanna, followed by designer and stylist Patricia Field, who counts among her many achievements the creation of the influential fashion identities of Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada. 185 Ste-Catherine W., Scooter Laforge conference 5:30–6:30 p.m., $15, Patricia Field conference 7–8 p.m., $35.
