Incubator on the move
Former Toronto Fashion Incubator residents are fanning out across the city (or, in the case of Wonderlust's Hannah Melville, all the way to Vancouver) to new studio spaces as the TFI prepares to relocate from its Queen and Dovercourt digs. Before they decamp, Juma Movement and Wonderlust , as well as Incubator alumni House of Spy and local label UpperCut , are holding a last collective sample sale Saturday (July 21) from noon to 7 pm at 967 Queen West. Designers will be on hand in the space below the Chocolate Factory lofts to style male and female shoppers into discounted samples and summer merchandise.
