LaSalle College Vancouver Students use the 1920’s as Inspiration for Vancouver Fashion Week Show

On Wednesday, March 18th, four LaSalle College Vancouver students presented a fashion show, all inspired by a 1920’s theme, on the runways of Vancouver Fashion Week (VFW). Showing at the Emerging Designers Night, this was LaSalle College Vancouver's 11th consecutive season as a VFW partner. Acclaimed Vancouver fashion stylist Tracey Pincott was once again serving as Artistic Director, working closely with the student designers to share her industry expertise. Lizbell Agency models helped the students showcase their designs on the catwalk. From a blank sheet of paper and a drawing pen, to fabric sourcing and pattern-making and finally sewing the final product and model fittings, the four presenting students have each created a collection of 8 looks within a short 4 month period.

Congratulations to our four presenting students: Su Yang, Shunan Zeng, Yicheng Chen and Adam-Lin Bungag.

Su Yang’s collection is inspired by the movie The Great Gatsby. She evokes 1920’s luxury interpreted in a current and fresh way. Boxy silhouettes, dropped waistlines and menswear references are given a modern twist.

Shunan Zeng found his inspiration in the freedom, hope and changing role of women post World War I. Women’s clothing reflected the times, with more comfortable silhouettes and dropped waists. Shunan’s designs reflect these changes, all while creating a modern boyish look

Yicheng Chen is showing for the second time at VFW. His collection is inspired by the Roaring Twenties. This golden age of prosperity, modernity, free spiritedness and in particular, the lavish, extravagant and irreverent parties of the era, informs Yicheng’s designs. Yicheng’s collection evokes this sense of extravagance and irreverence with sparkles, feathers and low hip lines.

Adam-Lin Bungag’s collection is inspired by the work of Piet Mondrian. He’s fused Mondrian’s lines with nods to 1970’s YSL, modern street chic and 1920’s silhouettes. Texture and line placement draw focus to certain areas of the body and play with proportions. The laser cut finishing and simple top stitching along the Mondrian lines create a sporty dimension, as do the neoprene and mesh fabrics
