VANCOUVER, B.C. – On Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013, Vancouver Community College (VCC) will celebrate all things fashion at VCC’s annual graduate fashion arts gala. Fiat Mode XXVI at VCC’s Broadway campus will showcase stunning designs created by this year’s 24 fashion arts graduates.
This year’s collections embrace new materials and a fresh spin on traditional attire. The show will also be presented in a unique, highly interactive format giving audience members a rare opportunity to get within a few feet of the collections.
“This year we want our guests to truly absorb the personality of each design,” says Tene Barber, dean, Continuing Studies. “They can expect a real up-close-and-personal fashion show experience unlike most others.”
Every year, VCC’s fashion arts graduates showcase raw talent through their refined collections. From evening gowns to hip-hop short shorts and street wear to wedding-inspired styles, our students never fail to impress.
“Fiat Mode gives up-and-coming designers a chance to prepare for the real fashion world,” adds Sarah Murray, show director. “They learn to produce a fashion show -- the industry’s most traditional marketing tool -- and get the opportunity to showcase their collections directly to buyers and the media.”
Fiat Mode XXVI is open to the public. Event details and tickets are available online.
