Dare to Wear Love at the Textile Museum of Canada


I headed to the Textile Museum yesterday with my mom. They had a wonderful exhibition on called Dare to Wear Love - a whole lot of designers creating dresses from African fabric, as an AIDS benefit, I think. Lots and lots of inspiration! (It was really, really hard not to touch the clothes. I might or might not have taken advantage of the fact that no-one was around, and might or might not have peeked at some construction details.














If you are in the area, well worth a quick stop. (And if you live in Toronto, you can get Textile Museum passes through your library card.)

Some great things there, the prints are gorgeous, I think they could have raised a whole lot more funds with a little fabric shop on the side!
