LaSalle College Vancouver has been officially partnering with Vancouver Fashion Week (VFW) for 10 seasons now - although unofficially they have shown here even longer. In previous seasons we were treated to the work of their Vancouver students, but this season, they took a new direction and brought in students from LaSalle Colleges in many different locations - Vancouver (2), Montreal (6), Jakarta (1), Barcelona (2) and Casablanca (6). Most are award winners. The show was divine! A great mix of work that tended toward the conceptual - something students have the freedom to explore. Kudos for an excellent show. It was one of my favourite this day.
While I do not have individual information available on these students, here is an excerpt from the school's press release.
This year, additional talent from a selection of the College’s international network campuses- primarily Montréal, Casablanca and Barcelona- will be bringing their collections to the runway here in Vancouver. New this season, three selected Fashion Merchandising students from the Vancouver campus will be producing the fashion show.
Designers featured in the show include:
LC Vancouver: Miona Nikolic, current student; Brit Wacher, alumna
LC Montreal: Frédéric Joncas, Mathieu Joncas, Alex-Ève Martin, Ting Tang, Roberto Racanelli and Ashley Hjorleifson - finalists and winners of TELIO’s “Canada’s Breakthrough Designers” competition 2014
LC Casablanca: Othama Bouih, Wofoa Zili, Soukaina Mountassir, Rokia Nejjar, Uhadija Adaha and Saadier Oulghiri
FDModa/LCI Barcelona: Ellsenda Oms Selvs, First Prize winner for the best collection at the Degree Show 2014 FDModa LCI Barcelona; and Jon Mikeo, First Prize winner of the 22nd Hemple Award China International Fashion Designer Contest 2014
LaSalle College Vancouver has great pride being part of the LCI Education network composed of 21 campuses in 11 countries. It is only natural for us to bring our network’s talent to Vancouver and share the creative masterpieces with our community,’’ states Diego Do Livramento, LaSalle College Vancouver Campus Director.
