Toronto toque pop-up benefits homeless youth

The toque seems to be the do-gooder's fashion accessory of choice in Toronto this winter, with good reason -- they're on-trend and inexpensive to make, but most importantly, they serve as a bearer, and a symbolic reminder, of warmth in frigid times. Hot on the heels of local maker Nathalie Roze's Lennie Project, which saw donated sweaters being recycled into warm toques, another local fashion brand has decided to put their heads together for a charitable initiative.

Local company broke&living will be hosting a pop-up shop/party on February 1, offering their signature toques (as worn here on fashion blog Connected To Fashion) for sale at Sole Survivor's new location on Dundas West. The company promises that for every toque sold, another toque -- one without the "broke" logo -- will be donated to Youth Without Shelter, which offers emergency shelter space for homeless youth ages 16-24.
