As our time at John Casablancas Institute comes to an end, fashion class 140 has begun preparations for a magnificent send off with the Lasya Tandava (lah-see-ah tann-dah-vah) fashion show.
The fashion show is inspired by the beauty of India and the Nataraja statue which represents the god Shiva as he does his cosmic dance of destruction and creation to change a weary universe.
Class 140 is now in the process of redefining light and dark, heavy and soft, and blending airy pieces with heavy, jeweled adornments. It is balance, ruination, and beauty that are our focus.
Lasya Tandava is setting up to become a cultural and emotional experience. You will be taken away, moved by the warmth, and transformed by the shows evolution.
The Lasya Tandava Fashion Show happens Thursday June 13 at Performance Works (Granville Island), doors open at 6pm with space for socializing and drinks, then the fashion show starts at 7:30pm. Tickets for JCI’s Lasya Tandava Fashion Show in support of Looking Glass Foundation are $20 in advance, $25 at the door or $15 for current JCI students. Tickets are available at JCI (220 Cambie).
