And just like that, another Vancouver Fashion Week has come and gone. As a sponsor for Vancouver Fashion Week this year, JCI was front row in support of Fashion grads and their Fall/Winer 2016 collections.
On the Wednesday evening, JCI grad and local knitwear fashion designer Sally Omeme presented her handmade knit collection. Seeing her knitwear in motion, one word comes to mind: SENSATIONAL. The intricate detail, hard work, and personal approach put into her designs are beyond remarkable. Sally’s pieces were flourishing coming down the runway at her first Vancouver Fashion Week show. Her collections have been previously seen at Eco Fashion Week and this was Sally’s next step in taking on the fashion world.
Sally has been knitting since the mid 2000’s but didn’t start designing until graduating from John Casablancas’ Fashion Business & Creative Arts Diploma Program in 2012. JCI helped bring out her inner designer and further expanded her passion for design. When asked about her inspiration, she says it comes from within. She is inspired by her own instincts but also her surroundings, which translate into creating impeccable and unique designs.
Below you can find her runway collection at Vancouver Fashion Week, presented by none other than John Casablancas International Model Management’s stunning models.
JCI’s Fashion Business & Creative Arts Diploma Program provides students with a comprehensive overview of the fashion industry, combining creative and business elements. This diverse approach gives our grads a distinct advantage both in knowledge and skill. If you’re interested in joining a Vancouver Fashion School, JCI would love to hear from you.
