THE PLACE D'ARMES HÔTEL & SUITES AND DENIS GAGNON COME TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE THEIR 10TH ANNIVERSARY

MONTREAL, Jan. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - The Antonopoulos Group is proud to announce that one of its landmark hotels, the Place d'Armes Hôtel & Suites, is celebrating their 10-year anniversary this year by collaborating with renowned local designer, Denis Gagnon.

Through this partnership, Denis Gagnon's creative genius will become part of the elegant decorum of the Place d'Armes Hôtel & Suites, located in Old Montreal, and member of the Antonopoulos Group. To mark the 10th anniversary of this prestigious and internationally renowned establishment, trendy new uniforms have been specially created for its staff. From concierges and receptionists to valets, everyone will now be seen wearing black and white, a sophisticated simplicity representing the signature design of Denis Gagnon. The men will also be wearing the famous Denis Gagnon zippers. For women, the look will be completed with a distinctive scarf of the designer's creation. The unique uniforms will be introduced in the hotel during spring 2011.

"The Place d'Armes Hotel & Suites is maintaining momentum, and aims to remain at the cutting edge of the newest trends in luxury, sophistication and lifestyle," said Dimitri Antonopoulos, Vice President, Marketing and Hotel & Restaurant Development, and spokesperson for the Group. "We are very proud of this new partnership and to welcome a Quebec treasure in haute couture. Our customers from around the world will now be able to appreciate the vibrant creativity of our local artists. "

For his part, Denis Gagnon, added "I am very excited to see this project materialize in the next few months." "Without a doubt, since I am also celebrating my own 10th anniversary of designing, the Place d'Armes Hôtel and I found ourselves on the same wavelength. I found the same pizzazz and energy that I put into my own creations in this chic boutique hotel. "

For ten years now, these two institutions have contributed, each in their respective fields of fashion and luxury hotel management, in placing Montreal at the forefront by highlighting its historical, cultural and artistic heritage.
