CAFTCAD Celebrates Costume — Toronto
The Canadian Alliance of Film & Television Costume Arts & Design returned to TIFF this September to celebrate show-stopping costumes with a star-studded guest list. Spotted was actress Natalie Brown, womenswear designer David Dixon, Toronto Fashion Incubator’s Susan Langdon, Juno-winning R&B artist Jully Black, Fashion Week fixture Robin Kay and other prominent personalities. The crowd of over 300 got an up-close look at the work of CAFTCAD’s members, which encompasses wardrobe from television (think Master’s size-24 boots from FX’s new horror drama The Strain and 16th-century-inspired garments from CW’s Reign) and film (historical-adventure movie Pompeii, action-packed The Masked Saint and the Romeo and Juliet-inspired dance film Make Your Move). The Sept. 9 shindig at the Spoke Club on King West continued the non-profit organization’s mission of promoting Canadian costume design in both industries — with a steady stream of drinks from Tag Vodka, Bear Flag wine and Birra Peroni.
