Mission Statement


Mission statement


Our goal is to enrich our community with a national organization that is inclusive of experience and talent.

CAFTCAD is not a union, but a professional association of individuals interested in promoting Costume Design for film, television & media from both an artistic and technical perspective.

The Alliance will provide an open forum for discussion, networking and shared learning for our members through periodic seminars, workshops and exhibits.

We will explore the areas of individual design approach, illustration and advancements in film technologies.  We will celebrate the richness of historic and contemporary fashion and its relationship to our craft.

Our vision is to increase awareness and the value of costume art and design as a powerful element in the collaborative process of filmmaking; furthering international recognition of the creative talent we have in Canada.
