In 2009, FTA launched a membership platform to provide support to emerging and established fashion designers across Canada. We promoted their products, and when possible sold them including for 5 straight years at the Green Living Show. Our 20×20 booth each year featured our many members with racks upon racks and table displays for our accessories and jewellery members. For the first 4 years, FTA completely managed the booth and in the last year, some of the designers joined us to help sell their products.
Each year, the members that were participating in our booth received additional exposure with a runway presentation or an installation. And in 2012 we were nominated for the City of Toronto’s Green Toronto awards in the Environmental Awareness category
