Don Alexander will later become a Niagara Escarpment Commissioner on the special land-use body that is charged with protecting the unique ecological areas along the 800km length of the unique landform.  Don Danard was a prominent morning radio host in Toronto for many years.


Niagara Escarpment Dress

An escarpment “wearable art” dress.  Shown in the 2011 Niagara Artists Centre “Strutt” wearable art runway show.  It is titled Niagara Esc-Art-Ment.  I printed on fabric, a design to portray fractured rock layers of the Niagara Escarpment.  I hand sewed the dress because I do not know how to use a sewing machine. A shoulder piece reflects the many water falls along the escarpment and some cedar sprays at waist respect the ancient thousand-year old cedar trees that grow along the rockfaces.DON DRESSMAKING - Version 2
