On April 5, 2017. LaSalle College Vancouver(LCV)’s student JinJu Ha won the Gold medal of this year’s Skills Canada BC Competition in the Fashion Design | Post-Secondary Category.
This annual competition took place in Abbotsford this year, offering a unique opportunity for students and young talents across British Columbia(BC) to showcase their skills in various areas in trade and technology.
In this category, students had only 7 hours to finish their assignment - a complete COAT creation - from designing, drafting, sewing to detailing. There are many requirements they had to meet in such a short period of time. Four Judges reviewed details on every creation from inside out and gave scores based on a comprehensive list of criteria. Not only did they exam from the design aspect, several technical aspects were also taken into consideration.
Congratulations to JinJu for winning her 2nd competition this month. She won the “Fairmont Chic Sheet Challenge” at Eco Fashion Week 2017 just days before this competition. JinJu has also previously been selected to showcase her collection on the runway of Vancouver Fashion Week Fall | Winter 2016.
