Archival Toronto is a Toronto, ONT based fashion events start-up that aims to “Empower the local creative community.”
We hosted the Canadian premieres of the documentaries WE MARGIELA and CELEBRATION by Olivier Meyrou. Their events have been featured in top publications such as HYPEBEAST, ELLE Canada, FASHION magazine, S/ Magazine and many more.
Our goal is to make fashion history accessible in Toronto to inspire a new generation of creatives to continue pushing boundaries and find their voice in the ever-shifting fashion landscape.
We’re known for their first our bi-annual archive fashion pop-up shops, bringing together rare and obscure archive fashion pieces from significant post-contemporary designers like Helmut Lang, Raf Simons, Rei Kawakubo and Martin Margiela, and makes them accessible to local collectors in a unique hyper curated way at affordable pricing.
Archival Toronto is now moving towards organizing culturally significant events that can empower a greater sense of appreciation for fashion history in the hopes of building an empowered creative community, linked by mutual interest and is always hungry to learn and create.
