TORONTO, ON, JULY 9, 2014 – PrideCode, the exclusive collaboration between Redwood Classics Apparel, Canada's premiere garment manufacturer, and Over the Rainbow, Toronto's denim destination, has garnered rave reviews and won fans from Toronto and beyond.
With a stunning logo designed by local artist Gio Petrucci, the PrideCode collection was created to support and promote WorldPride 2014 while raising funds for Fife House. "We wanted to give back to the community and show our love and support for WorldPride the best way we know how - by creating sustainable, quality, made-in-Canada clothes that will stand the test of time," said Kathy Cheng, President of Redwood Classics.
This decidedly local approach to promoting an event that is celebrated worldwide was met with high approval in the press. PrideCode received national coverage in The Globe and Mailand Canadian Living, as well as being feted by local publications like NOW Toronto, blogTO and Toronto Is Fashion. The versatile tees and tanks were also the Editor's Pick by Among Men.
Despite WorldPride festivities coming to an end, the Redwood Classics partnership with Over the Rainbow continues; Their Heritage Collection, boasting high quality tees, sweatshirts and tanks made in Redwood's local Toronto factory, are proudly available on OTR shelves. As with PrideCode, the Heritage Collection is proving to be massively popular - and with good reason. "The success of PrideCode proves that made-in-Canada apparel that is designed with a conscience will always be in style," said Cheng.
