This year Northbound Leather commemorates 30 years of continued quality work in leather designs, fetish fashion, and perpetuating the perversion of all mankind. Throughout the years they have gone through many changes,  worked with many designers, and changed locations. Their fetish events grew from intimate parties to massive multi thousand person events.

On Saturday October 22, 2016 they will be celebrating again, and to mark the occasion they are proud to announce the return of Marty Rotman as head designer. This isn’t your same old fashion show. We really put the show part in it. Expect the theatrical. Experience and inspirational and erotic show!

It seems that things have certainly changed in society over the past three decades when it comes to sex, kink, and fetishes. Queer culture is mainstream, and now it looks like the kink community might be heading that way as well. Recent Globe and Mail and 24Hours coverage of this event are opening eyes and minds to more and more all the time. Should be a fun anniversary party, with all the regulars and some newbies to initiate!

Special Performance by MIDORI 
Fair warning: When asking Midori to perform this year she replied with an enthusiastic YES! then asked if the show was called Trigger Warning. Consider yourselves warned! Sharp as a whip, super talented, and an all around amazing woman!
