Wave Ontario Wardrobe Challenge

Our challenge is to see how much of what we wear and use can be made in, and from, materials found, or grown, here in Ontario.
How much can be returned to the soil without harm when we are finished using it?
The Wave Ontario Wardrobe Challenge is to make a garment, accessory or outfit from materials sourced in Ontario.

WOW Challenge Festival

Now informed of the ‘whys‘ of local and slow fashion, we want to play with the ‘hows‘. What can we find here in Ontario and what can we make out of it?

There will be prizes, an opportunity to walk the runway, an opportunity to showcase and sell wares.
This is the first of an annual challenge to see how much of what, in our wardrobe, can be sourced here in Ontario.
We will showcase the winners at our 2nd anniversary celebration July 12-13th 2024, here in Seguin Ontario.
A black tie Gala event is planned for July 12, 2024 with local food and entertainment. The celebrations and festivities will continue July 13, 2024 at our Cultural Textile Festival which will include Runway Bookings, Vendors, Workshops, Tours…
