On September 14th, Toronto based apparel manufacturer Redwood Classics Apparel will open its doors for NewCo Toronto.

Now in its second year in Toronto, NewCo events are known worldwide for their radical departure from the standard conference format. Part summit, part festival, attendees craft their own unique experience. Each attendee creates their schedule, visiting companies of their choice throughout the city. From there they are given an exclusive backstage pass, learning firsthand about the companies from their leaders and CEOs from right inside their offices.

Redwood Classics will be teaming up with longtime collaborator Preloved to share their story of carving out a niche for sustainable, ethically produced clothing in Toronto, and how they plan on continuing to bring eco-fashion to Canada in a big way. In addition to being a host company at this year’s conference, Redwood Classics also had the pleasure of outfitting NewCo volunteers in custom made-in-Canada tees.
