Fashion Exhibit at Guelph Museum!

Some great vintage finds at the Guelph Civic Museum! We've met Ken and Jonathan, the charming gents behind the Fashion History Museum in Cambridge several times at Meow! and at Chat Noir, and we are thrilled to see parts of their collection in our town:

Open Drawers, 2009: Highlights from the Fashion History Museum's First Year of Acquisitions

Guelph Civic Museum hosts a very special exhibit from August 15 to September 6, 2009.

This special display from the collection of the Fashion History Museum includes items ranging from a late 18th century dressing table from the Liberty's of London family to fashions by Worth, Biba, Westwood and Versace. Also featured is a dress by Jessica Biffi, the young Canadian designer who appeared on Project Runway Canada. The dress was made from Biffi's design for the "Winners Challenge" on the television program and will inaugurate the Fashion History Museum's collection of contemporary Canadian clothing known as the History in the Making Collection.

The exhibit runs from August 15 to September 6, 2009. The Guelph Civic Museum is open daily from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Guelph News: Hanlon Creek Protest

So the big news in Guelph recently is the occupation at Hanlon Creek. The city wants to build a new business park (for factories and stuff) in an area of Guelph that is home to old growth forest and an endangered species of salamander. Some dedicated people have occupied the future construction site to raise awareness of this issue and try to get the city to change its plans. This is a very important cause that touches so many issues, including quality of life, our environment, business, and city government.

The city has gone to the police and to the courts to gets the protesters out. There is a long fight ahead and and it may be costly. It will also require people turning out to gatherings at City Hall and writing letters to the mayor and city council members. Here are some resources:

The occupiers and their support network need food and other support. They will alos need legal money. Supporters are selling pins and bracelets made from dead vegetable life found at the site. We have some at Meow! but they are also available elsewhere.
