Event description

Description

Fashion History Museum director/curator Jonathan Walford will be giving a tour of their exhibit, Dressing Toronto, which explains the history of Toronto Fashion over the past 150 years.

As one of Canada’s largest cities, Toronto has been a centre of fashion design, production, and marketing. Many of Canada’s leading brands and retailers originated and were headquartered here, and wave after wave of new Canadians have worked in the industry in some capacity. Although under threat from cheap off-shore manufacturing and mega-national corporate retailers, a unique Toronto fashion scene is still surviving.


Dressing Toronto is part of, Discounted Histories: Retail History and Trade Networks in Toronto, a month-long exhibition presented by Myseum of Toronto that takes place during the month of November.

Discounted Histories explores the movement of goods, services, and ideas that have formed Toronto’s retail landscape, long before Confederation. Rooted in the physical geography of waterways that connected hundreds of nations through trade routes, and spanning a time of rapidly evolving technology, from specialized artisans to mass production, and mail-order catalogues to online shopping; Discounted Histories reassesses part of Toronto’s existing historical narrative, by bringing to light overlooked, unseen, and forgotten histories.

To find out more about the Discounted Histories exhibition and the variety of programs and exhibits happening during the month of November please visit the Myseum website.
