CAFA Closet Challenge!

Written by Treasure Seeker Colleen

Over the past few weeks, I have seen many articles related to the new barriers the Canadian fashion industry will face due to the Covid 19 epidemic. Many industry experts have been looking for ways to highlight Canadian talent and raise funds for small businesses. A great example of this is the CAFA (Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards) closet challenge. This challenge is a great way of highlighting the tremendous talent we have here, and to celebrate what would normally be in the news and on the red carpet, world wide. I have been following all of the reposts featuring people wearing Canadian designs on the CAFA Facebook page and decided I would take part in the challenge too!

Both my daughter Anthea (who now primarily supports the behind the scenes of Clothes Line Finds) and I have attended CAFA events, e.g., myself here in Vancouver 2014 and Toronto 2014 and Anthea in Toronto 2014 as well.

In keeping with the idea of showing Canadian favourites in my closet and jewellery case, I am sharing some photos featuring Vancouver Designers: Chloe Angus DesignsWendy Van Riesen (Dahlia Drive), Melissa Ferreira (Adhesif Clothing)Yifat Jovani Designs, Terry SasakiAniimiism by Cassie Dee, Fluevog, Kapade, and always fabulous jewellery by Carolyn Bruce Designs.

You can find the original Facebook post here if you want to participate!
