Hot Art: Textile Museum Offers Model Charity

A 2009 Dare to Wear Love contribution from Farley Chatto

FEBRUARY 8 TO MAY 6 The Textile Museum
of Canada
is not just about festive hats and historical tapestries; its forays into modern fashion and textile art are often its most captivating! At present, the institution boasts an exhibition of haute couture created from African cloth for the annual fashion fundraiser Dare to Wear Love—by such Canadian designers as Farley Chatto, Brian Bailey and Linda Lundström. Culled from three years of the event, the unique pieces emphasize how social awareness in the global milieu can be increased through artistic expression.
