If you’ve ever seen the TV shows Project Runway or Running in Heels, you know the fashion design industry is filled with intense moments and sheer creative brilliance. You’ve got to be fuelled by a desire and passion for design that few can match.
That’s exactly what students at LaSalle College Vancouver (LCV) have. And on Thursday, March 22, five fashion students from the college showcased their designs at David Lam Hall for Vancouver Fashion Week.
Working with the mission statement ‘Rethink, Reuse, Repurpose’, Shuo Yang (China), Azam Rezahosseini (Vancouver), Daniela Franken Dominguez (Mexico), Gurkirat Narang (India), and Alannah Anderson (Manitoba), created runway looks using pieces of donated clothing and textile remnants from Fabcycle.
LCV is one of the few colleges in the city which helps students from their Fashion Design Diploma to take part in Fashion Week, making it the perfect place for budding designers to flourish.
The Vancouver College was established back in 1998, and it’s an Applied Arts school accredited by Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education of British Columbia and which meets the provincial British Columbian Education Quality Assurance (EQA) standards.
Fashion Design is one of more than 35 applied arts programs that you could study at the College to attain credentials ranging from Bachelor degrees to certificates. Studying for a Fashion Design diploma at LaSalle College Vancouver can help you begin your career in the industry through hands-on education designed to help you work through the design challenges that you would face in the real world.
You’ll take your ideas from sketch to finished product and build your skills in traditional and computer-generated design, as well as pattern-making. Plus, you’ll be surrounded by other talented, creatively-driven students, and inspired by experienced faculty.
As LaSalle College Vancouver points out: “It’s not a walk in the park. It’s a journey toward doing what you love.”
