STUDIO VISIT: FASHION EXCHANGE
63 Regent Park Blvd, Toronto
Marilyn McNeil-Morin, Director of the Fashion Exchange, will lead a tour of this innovative space in Regent Park. Fashion Exchange supports emerging fashion industry workers through its Industrial Power Sewing training programs, and graduate programs in technical apparel design and sustainable fashion production. Emerging designers can also use the space as a small-scale working factory – a unique shared facility that supports new business models and local economies.
Marilyn McNeil-Morin is Chair of George Brown's School of Fashion Studies.
Textile Museum of Canada's Conscious Consumption Series 3 pulls together important conversations about consumption and moves them into the city around us. We start with the premise that consumption is an everyday activity that benefits from awareness. We also see it as a deeply personal one – full of commitment, passion and learning.
