Vancouver Fashion Week March 14-20, 2016
JCI is a proud sponsor of VFW Fall/Winter 2016! Be sure to come out to the shows on March 19 and 20th to see the work of your JCI peers. Our team will be working backstage dressing, and doing makeup and hair at Vancouver Fashion Week for the big finale weekend. JCI’s team of over 100 will be bringing looks to life for shows including Elephantasia, Gatsbylady, Danny Reinke and Sunny Bridal on Saturday and Evan Clayton, Futa Kashmir, Kim Shui and more on Sunday. JCI’s Makeup and Hair grads are known for their confidence and creativity- two qualities that are respected (and required) for working at a high-pressure event like Fashion Week.
JCI is also very proud to announce that three of our Fashion grads will be participating with runway shows of their current designs. Sally Omeme will show her line on Wednesday, March 16th at 6:50pm, while Bonnie Chung’s Je Vis Couture line will show on Sunday, March 20th at 4:15pm and Mark Abenir’s Averynthe line will follow at 4:25pm.
