SOL(e)D! aka Anita’s Birthday Party

I’m celebrating my birth with one of my favourite magazines, the Worn Fashion Journal. Join me and the Worn Team celebrate the closing of the ART & SOLE exhibition.

SOL(e)D! aka Anita's Birthday Party

The ART & SOLE exhibition (May 21 – June 6) will feature twenty-four interpretations of that understated fash classic, Keds. The exhibit will close with a v. fashionable gala (cocktails! hor d’oevres! 1960s Motown/Stax/Hi Records music courtesy of Shake a Tail DJs!) and live auction fundraiser which will give our readers the chance to bid on these wonderful creations, with a portion of proceeds supporting Fashion Cares (in support of ACT).

The animated image above displays some of the shoes in the collection. Attendees of SOL(e)D! will also have access to all exhibits in the museum, cheap drinks and free food. Tickets are $28 and also include 2 year subscription to WORN. Tickets can be purchased online SOL(e)D! Tickets or in person at the following stores:

  • Winkle, 1107 Queen Street East
  • Left Feet, 88 Nassau Street
  • Frou Frou, 1616 Queen Street West

If you see any shoes you like there is an auction and you can try to get them for yourself. Out of the ones I’ve seen these are a couple of my favourites:
