JCI’s Fashion Business & Creative Arts #147 students wrapped up the end of their course with attitude and style. The students presented their final project, a fashion show titled, EQUINOX, at Creekside Community Centre on March 24th.
EQUINOX represents contrast- the place where day meets night, and black meets white. The show presented streetwear with a sophisticated twist. It focused on geometric designs and elongated silhouettes while playing with concepts of gender and androgeny.
Working in teams, the students chose garments and styled sections of the show to showcase their fashion vision. While each team had a distinct style, the whole show blended the EQUINOX theme together seamlessly. The group successfully presented the eclectic world of EQUINOX – where opposites are equals.
Besides styling, the students managed all the details of putting together the show. A fashion show takes enormous effort and planning to coordinate garments, models, volunteers, sponsors and more. The twelve students in class 147 were up to the challenge, organizing the show under the direction of instructor, Joan DeRaucourt. Proceeds of the show went to support the Looking Glass Foundation, an organization that supports those suffering with eating disorders.
