Electric Fashion Installed on Solar Installer

Remember our friendly solar panel vendor neighbors from the National Home Show? Well, the destiny intended for Freedom and InPhase Power Inc.  to reunite this past weekend at the Green Living Show. Not only was it great to see them but it was also fun to learn that our two puppets are bringing tons of walk ins into their office.
"Solar Peter" was looking for a way to add some spice to otherwise long trade show hours, and who can offer better spice than Freedom CC? This time it came in the form of a blue and grey striped onesie by Muttonhead Collective. Peter didn't hesitate to put it on and model it for us and the curious yet entertained show audience. He did it so well in fact, that we immediately got a ton of questions about the product and the brand.
In conclusion, we would like to thank Peter and his team and are looking forward to sharing show space with them in the future.

Green Living Show

Freedom_CC is at the Green Living Show booth #118 down at the Direct Energy Centre Exhibition place this weekend - April 15,16 & 17.

Our booth, we believe, is our best effort and setup to date. Thanks in large part to Poppyseedliving - to die for furniture and home decor items, Rae designs - stunning accessories and gift sets, Kali Clothing - Lyocell at it's absolute finest, Muttonhead Collective - a collective energy that captures the best in unisex garments and all the rest of our lovely designers.

So we didn't quite get the media coverage we hoped for but we thought we'd share the images we took with you anyway! It was a great last min effort, very entertaining, and we would love to give a shout out to Claire (our wicked photographer) and Kyla (our stunning model) for jumping to our aid VERY last min.
Let us know what you think!

!!!! WINNER !!!!

The exquisite Cassandra is the winner of our contest for the Green Living Show tickets!

Not only is she super skilled at reconfiguring old ties but in this picture she shows us her top of the line balancing act! Congrat Cassandra for the win and the skills :)

April exhibition: Characters

Exhibiting artists: Darcy Allan, Jessica Bartram, Erin Candela, Trent Hunter, Ehsan Kiabakhsh, So Yeon Kim, Christie Lau, Colleen McKeown, and Naz Rahbar.

April 8th – May 3rd

Opening Reception:
Friday, April 8th at 8 pm
Live music by Jason Poisson at 8.30 pm

“Whether it is someone I know, sleeping in front of me or a stranger before me on the train, I sometimes see characters I feel the urge to capture.” - Naz Rahbar

This exhibition is a collection of visual documentations of human and animal personalities that together illustrate the journey we undertake to discover ourselves. These artists contextualize both real and imagined personalities within identities of other species, reactions to environmental factors, archetypal narratives, and surrounding landscapes. Just like how we attain meaning through establishing context, the works of these artists seek meaning in personal identity in their relation to outside factors.

Of all the runways I had a chance to attend at LG Fashion Week, it seems quite fitting that the only one I could see was Amanda Lew Kee on Friday April 1st. Sitting in the “reserved media” section, and representing Freedom Clothing Collective, an organization that thrives on creative innovation, environmental and social responsibility was a good match for Lew Kee’s runway. Although I’m not certain on the sustainability of her collection, one thing was certain - she had a story to tell about the many environmental issues our planet seems to be facing everyday.  Lew Kee’s designs for the most part were black fabrics, from shear to velvet, and fun gold zippers. She used other fabrics to represent oil, fire, and water- elements which have caused and continue to cause great problems all around the globe. It was a great opportunity to see Lew Kee’s vision, and promising that such an admired young designer would want to focus her viewers attention on more than just clothing.

To top off the night, Kellog’s was present, handing out pretty red bags of Special K cereal, and other treats, to the many fans of fashion week. Now, each morning as I eat my cereal, I think about Amanda Lew Kee’s collection and will always remember my very first runway show at Toronto Fashion Week as “special K”. “Special” for the experience; vision; and cereal, and, “K” for Kee...and of course, cereal.
