John Casablancas Institute’s Fashion students put together two fashion shows last night: District 157 and Dissidence. The show was held at the Roundhouse Community Centre and was hosted by JCI Fashion graduate Emma Leger, alongside with videographer and photographer, Steven Kruger.

It takes a lot of hard work and commitment to run a professional fashion show. From booking a venue, casting models to planning an entire night, JCI Instructor Joan DeRaucourt lead two fashion classes into producing a successful show.
If you missed our Instagram and Snapchat videos last night and weren’t able to make it to the shows, then continue scrolling to view the highlights:

Emma Leger and Steven Kruger were phenomenal hosts last night and definitely knew how to light up the room. All net proceeds from the show went towards Covenant House Vancouver, who we have been partnering with for ten years!


Dissidence was all about the young, the reckless and street style. This show consisted of mixing and matching different types of fabrics and adding sporty details to a couple of the looks.

“City streets are the real runways.” 



From daring looks with pops of color, District 157 delivered an amazing show to end the evening. Layers and cutting-edge styles were definitely a theme for this show.

“Those with edge don’t follow trends; they set the trend.” 

The two JCI Fashion classes put on a remarkable show last night and we are so proud of all students! Congratulations to class 156 and 157 upon graduating the JCI Fashion Business and Arts Program.
