OF PEGGY SUE COLLECTION
 

FREE

Sun, Feb 11
Doors: 12 PM, Talk: 1 PM

@ DX  |  234 BAY ST

"Resiliency is about knowing what you want, why you are driving for it, appreciating where you are, seeing from where you've come, and knowing that failure just means pivot, figure it out, and do it different," says Peggy Sue Deaven-Smiltnieks, our 2017 Emerging Designer Competition winner.

Join us on Sunday, February 11 for a conversation with Peggy Sue and Kelly Drennan of Fashion Takes Action, as they discuss the evolution of Peggy Sue Collection, including her recent trip to Shanghai for the Intertextile Shanghai Exhibition.

 

Deaven-Smiltnieks describes her guiding ethos, provides a peek at her design and fabrication process, gives us highlights from her recent trip to Shanghai with TESTEX, a textile industry leader, and discusses the experience as an emerging designer. 


Plus – limited pieces from Peggy Sue Collection will be available for purchase!
