DISCOUNTED HISTORIES

Style & Substance with Joe Mimran & Suzanne Boyd

While one decided what story to run on a cover, the other designed clothing to cover a runway. Join Canadian fashion brand icon, Joe Mimran, (Alfred Sung, Club Monaco, Joe Fresh) and current Zoomer and former Flare Editor-In-Chief Suzanne Boyd, for an informal conversation as they share personal stories and anecdotes highlighting Mimran’s contribution to the past, present, and future of fashion and brand marketing in Toronto and Canada.

The talk between Joe Mimran and Suzanne Boyd will be followed by a reception that includes light snacks, refreshments, and a chance to explore the Discounted Histories exhibit space.
