Established in 1998, LaSalle College Vancouver (LCV) is a boutique design school accredited by BC’s Private Career Training Institutions Agency (PCTIA) and meets the provincial British Columbian Education Quality Assurance (EQA).
For the 13th consecutive season, LaSalle College Vancouver (LCV) will be presenting 5 student collections on the runway of Vancouver Fashion Week. This season, the collections presented at Vancouver Fashion Week where inspired by rhythm, hence each collection being accompanied down the runway with music performed by students of the Sarah McLachlan School of Music (SOM).
Rhythm is the feeling of organized movement. A cohesive collection is achieved when the lines, shapes, colours, textures or patterns in clothing are arranged to lead the viewer’s eye easily from one part of the garment to another. As in music, there needs to be harmony, unity, balance and a sense of continuity.
“This season, we are very excited to partner with SOM. Our student designers have been paired with a musician who will be performing a musical piece to accompany their garments down the runway along with live vocal performance by Sophie Elder-Labrie, also a student at SOM. This has been a great experience for our student designers as well as an enriching opportunity for the students of the Sarah McLachlan School of Music whom for the most part have never performed at a fashion event.’’ says Diego Do Livramento, Director of LaSalle College Vancouver.
