Designer Profile

Nine students from Vancouver Community College’s Fashion program will take to the stage at Vancouver Fashion Week.  This is the culmination of two year’s hard work for the students. Each student is given the opportunity to explore their creative inspiration through the technical skills they have learned in the diploma program. The result is nine unique collections that range from evening wear to avant garde and everything in between.
