Prince’s Charities Canada
Prince’s Charities Canada (PCC) assembled a VIP group, including the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, PCC patron Sylvia Mantella and PCC ambassador Melissa Grelo, for the opening of the 95th annual Royal Agricultural Winter Fair this November. All three were sent 100 yards of Harris Tweed and challenged to wear the refined fabric differently in honour of the Campaign for Wool partnership, with Mantella wearing an outfit specially made by Canadian designer Mikhael Kale. As part of Canada’s Wool Week, The Prince of Wales’ Campaign for Wool sponsored all sheep-related events, including a sheep education centre, sheep-shearing demonstrations, a sheep-to-shawl competition and more. In addition, the Campaign for Wool partnered with the iconic Harris Tweed Authority to create a “wool house” exhibit. The exhibit highlighted the unique sustainable qualities of wool by replicating a room in a house in which everything was made from the durable fabric.
