In turn the magazine gave a lot of space to Dare To Wear Love. Why wouldn't we? It's such an amazing Toronto story, enlisting the talents and hearts of local fashion designers to help raise money and awareness for the work of the Stephen Lewis Foundation. In October of 2010, I wrote a preview piece on Dare To Wear Love as well as a feature interview with Stephen Lewis Foundation executive director Ilana Landsberg-Lewis. Why is the Foundation so effective? Why is its work so crucial? Please check out my story; it's as applicable today as it was when it was published three and half years ago. And here's an interview with Tyrell and Searle by Derek Dotto that we published early 2013.
