Public Good and Dare To Wear Love - Turning the Tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa
Public Good has recently completed a rebranding of the Dare To Wear Love Fashion Gala and Challenge for Toronto fashion icons, Hoax Couture. In support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation, both the Gala and Challenge raises funds and awareness to help turn the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa at the community grassroots level.
The Dare To Wear Love Gala (March 22, 2013) and fashion runway event, will be held at The Ritz Carleton. Event founders Chris Tyrell and Jim Searle of Hoax Couture invite 25 top Canadian fashion designers to participate. Each is given six yards of African fabric from which to produce a one-of-a-kind ensemble, and the resulting creations are modelled at the gala by supermodels, dancers, musicians, and other celebrities, as well as winners of the Dare to Wear Love Challenge.
Public Good is proud to sponsor and support this urgent and worthy campaign with strategic branding, design development and key messaging.
