Art of fashion
The Freedom Clothing Collective (939 Bloor West, 416-530-9946, www.freedomclothingcollective.com) has opened a new artist exhibition at its indie designer clothing and accessory boutique. Montreal-based Jack Dylan created work for Wolf Parade and has collaborated with the collective on a series of T-shirts featuring his designs. Fashion Is My Middle Name, an exhibition of posters and the new Ts, runs until November 23.
Big ticket bash
The Power Plant art gallery's 20th anniversary gala on November 15 is an extra big ticket fundraiser (the price of admission starts at a thousand bucks) where high rollers with an appreciation for high art will wave their paddles for pieces by Frank Gehry, Michael Snow and other Canadian names. If you'd like to take the ticket plunge, log on to www.thepowerplantevents.org for info. If not (and we're guessing most can't), you can still browse the auction lots from tomorrow (Friday, November 9) to November 14 at the gallery (231 Queens Quay West, 416-973-4949).
Secrets from your Sister celebrates 10 years of busting out well-fitting bras with the opening of a new location west of Bathurst. The shop has made the move to a new 1,400-square-foot home at 560 Bloor West (416-538-1234, www.secretsfromyoursister.com). Stock and size selection has expanded with its new abode, so look for hard-to-find lines from Fantasie, Chantelle, Freya, Elle Macpherson, Princesse Tam Tam, Betsey Johnson and Panache.
Cavalli kick off
If you're reading this and aren't already in line outside your favourite H&M store (1 Dundas West, 416-593-0064, and others), there's a chance you've already missed out on the pick of the Roberto Cavalli at H&M stock, which lands in stores today (Thursday, November 8). The limited collection for glamourpuss boys and girls has already premiered in a fashion party TV spot featuring top models and A-listers schmoozing and slinking in wild animal prints, satiny metallics and sharp suiting.
