John Casablancas Institute’s Core Design graduates, Jillian Isabel and Martha Pandelo, graced the runway on the final night of Vancouver Fashion Week. As their on-trend monochromatic Spring 2018 collections walked down the catwalk, the crowd was left admiring and snapping JCI Design graduate’s soft pieces.

Jillian Isabel 

Jillian Isabel opened the show on the final night at VFW with a collection that sparked up the room. Her first collection, “Shoreline” gives new context to the meaning of tradition. The brand is inspired by Art Deco styles and seaside towns, bringing together timeless silhouettes with modern minimalism.

“It was definitely stressful but exciting at the same time. The organized chaos backstage is pretty exhilarating!” – Jilian Isabel

Martha Pandelo

Martha Pandelo’s S/S18 collection was inspired by origami techniques and geometric shapes found in architectural structures. From transparent trends seen on the runway to the directional idea of using aesthetic and minimalistic makeup trends, Martha’s collection is our summer dream wardrobe!

“It was a dream come true being at Vancouver Fashion Week. I’m really thankful for John Casablancas Institute for allowing this amazing opportunity and helping me every step of the way.” – Martha Pandelo
