Creating confetti: TIFF 2019

Real Housewives of Toronto Star Joan Kelley Walker wore the confetti trench coat on the red carpet at TIFF this week.

The confetti trench coat was made by using a unique textile technique created by Dee Silkie. Left over fabric scraps from previous projects were cut into small squares one at a time and then sewn onto large strips of fabric. Once the strips were complete they were then sewn together to create a large piece of confetti-like fabric. The fabric was then cut and sewn in Toronto Ontario to create this one of a kind, brightly coloured trench coat.
