Our students showing at Vancouver Fashion Week on September 22, 2016

For the 14th consecutive season, LaSalle College Vancouver (LCV) will be presenting 5 student collections on the runway of Vancouver Fashion Week. These five talented student designers, originally from Canada, Ghana, and China, explore from within themselves and their inner intuition. They seek their inspiration from various different elements and forms in daily life, from withered flowers, sun rays to architecture. Their fabric choices range from handmade crochet and lace, chiffon, psychedelic art print on double knit, luxurious sequin, dupioni silk to metallic vinyl.

Hannah Vanderveen  | Canada
Hannah’s collection is inspired by a warm summer evening at the lake; the colours of the sunset dancing over the gentle waves and ripples of the water. She uses a variety of luxurious lightweight summer airy materials including sequin, linen, and cotton.

Erica NanaAma Fouillard  | Ghana
Erica’s collection “Soft Power” was inspired by sun beams creating silhouettes that combine both warm and soft elements. The fabrics mimic the strong and forceful nature of the sun.

Zory Sun | China
Zory’s collection is inspired by Psychedelic Art.  She incorporates psychedelic art prints to depict the inner world of the psyche. You can also see this collection as a visual display of mind manifesting in Fashion.

Mona Zhao | China
Mona‘s collection is a play on two contrary inspirations; the beauty of imperfection and the idea that sometimes things are perfect the way they are. All flowers on the garments are handmade and sewn on somewhat unfinished. This creates a contrast against the elegant fabrics and fitted silhouettes.

Zi Xia “Zee” | China
Zee’s collection is inspired by the clean lines found in Zen architecture and the silhouettes from the Tibetan Buddhist black robe. Various specialty materials are used to mirror Zen architecture and minimalism, including tan-cork, multiple layers of translucent vinyl and metallic fabrics.
