Cultural Designs

This exhibit focuses on uniforms that Torontonians wear in all stages of life. Whether it be the outfits for little league, fast-food restaurants, or high schools, Toronto is made up of a patchwork of uniforms. While many of the designs for and overall image of various military, work or sports uniforms have changed over time, each distinctive set of clothes continues to help us identify what we value in our society.
