 Fashion Arts at Vancouver Maker Faire 2015

Students and faculty from VCC Fashion Arts had a lot of fun hosting a design booth at the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire on June 6 and 7 at the PNE Forum. They were busy all weekend with mostly women and girls (as little as 2 years old) lining up to create and construct their own outfit on mini dress forms using draping and pattern-making techniques.

One memorable visitor was a six-year-old girl who spent an hour and a half creating a couple of very impressive outfits. Others were excited to practice block printing techniques on a dress that could fit a doll when brought home.

The VCC team also chatted with many people interested in non-credit offerings and others who wanted to learn more about the technology behind the fashion, such as rendering fabrics for video games.

This was the first time VCC has been a part of the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire. With all the positive feedback received from participants, it was deemed a great success and we look forward to returning next year!
