Tradicious in partnership with La Blouse Roumaine invite you to the
IA Festival – A Celebration of the Romanian Blouse
Saturday, June 21st, 2014 from noon to 5 pm
Textile Museum of Canada
55 Centre Ave, Toronto
This festival shares a selection of the most delicate and beautiful handmade Romanian blouses.
We wish to discover with you the value IA has in our people’s culture and to integrate it in our lives not only at times of celebration, but in daily life wherever we are in the world.
During the event, public figures, artists of Romanian heritage, and guests will model old and delicate blouses and costumes held in their families for generations.
We invite you to open your “dowry chest” from back home and bring those clothing treasures for all to see and admire.
We are fortunate to be working with the Textile Museum of Canada’s specialists and with passionate collectors like Gabriela Covaci – ROCATeach, Elena Mitroi Nistea, Dumitru Rachitan – ACR Hamilton in organizing this event.
We would like to express our gratitude to our partners who also joined us in this project: Victoria Bularda – Women of Success, Mona Medan – Romanian Students Club of UofT & ORCA Youth, as well as Liliana Rusicior – Romanian Club our media partner and Raluca Vulpe our folk singer, Bianca Huma a very young and promising voice and to all those who have helped us spread the word of this festival in their communities.

“Tradition is the passing on of the fire, not the worship of the ashes.”
Let’s dress the planet in IA! Let’s pass together the fire to the next generations and to the world.
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
