This weekend, the Canadian Alliance of Film & Television Costume Arts & Design (CAFTCAD), will be hosting its annual Spring Movie Wardrobe Sale, featuring over 30 vendor booths selling clothing and accessories from costume rental houses and various TV productions.
Taking place this Saturday, May 12, the wardrobe sale will feature items for men, women and children including a selection of vintage and gently used designer and name brand clothing and accessories as well as items that have been featured on TV series and films shot in Toronto.
The sale will feature many vendors who are affiliated with the industry as well as costume professionals with items from shows they have worked on.
There will also be a measurement booth set up where anyone attending can have their measurements taken by designer, Izzy Camilleri.
Finally, during the sale, CAFTCAD will be holding a donations drive for local non-profit initiative “The Clothes Off Our Racks,” which helps homeless and start-up charities and women’s shelters through the city.
