WEAR 2017 is taking place November 13 & 14 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

This was our first year attending WEAR and we are so glad that we did! It was an extremely well organized and informative event. The speakers and panel members were excellent. We had the opportunity to network and meet other like-minded people and business in the industry. We walked away equipped with knowledge and hundreds of ideas that we’re now working on applying. We cannot wait for WEAR 2016 and highly recommend it to all who are in the ethical fashion industry!Unikati
