JCI Fashion Graduate and Knitwear Designer, Sally Sandusky

Born in Cardston, Alberta, Sally Sandusky dreamed of working in the fashion industry for as long as she could remember. Her dreams became reality when she hopped on a plane with her two suitcases and enrolled in the John Casablancas Institute Fashion Business and Arts Program in 2011.

Geometry and Baseball- A Spring Trend Report

Spring is here and so are the trends for the season! Here's my report on what I love! Designers are taking a practical approach to summer coats with a focus on trenches and waterproofs.

Why I love Allison

Sitting through lectures and dedicating hours to homework on a weekly basis makes it difficult to remember that there is any glamour in the fashion industry. But every month or so, we race to the front desk in hopes of getting a spot on the JCI Mixer photo shoot list; the crescendo of creativity amidst the exams and term projects. Our minds embark on a journey of artistic expression. Finally, we can slip our feet into Grace Coddington’s shoes and realize the dream of creating one of those beautifully, creative, glossy editorials in the pages of Vogue magaz...

Heaven at Holts

Walking into Holt Renfrew is like passing through the gates of heaven. Stark white marble surroundings, floating transparent elevators and gleaming silver display cases filled with couture treasures transport guests to a retail utopia. The chance to experience the inner-workings of a renowned fashion mecca such as Holt Renfrew has always been a dream of mine. Needless to say, when the career liaison at John Casablancas Institute announced the opportunity for a three-month internship within the various departments at Holt Renfrew I nearly fell off my chair!
