You may have seen Toronto-based illustrator and Sheridan grad Melinda Josie’s kitty illustration’s in the current Little Burgundy campaign (shown). She works as a freelancer illustrating children’s books, doing editorial work, creating textile designs, and making fine art for gallery shows and commissions – but I think she’s on to something with these fashionable cats!
Another Toronto resident who also studied at Sheridan (Interpretive Illustration) is illustrator Chloe Cushman – her well-dressed subjects happen to be giraffes and lions – love it!

$5~ (free with a donation of leather pants/skirt)
Here’s how it works: Bring your gently loved clothing . There is a $5~ admission fee that will go to help fund PACTfashion – OR you can bring your used leather pants/skirt instead of admission. Then swap away, dear fashionistas! The more, the merrier!
Bring your out of date leather and swap it for something better! PACTfashion wants those old clothes! Help the PACTfashionistas start their very own clothing line – funds raised (and leather donated) from PACTfashion SWAP will be used to create a fun, wearable clothing line from the kids at PACTfashion!
