"Not Just a Fashion Show"

 

Wednesday, April 27, 2016 - 1:30pm

I just wanted to share with you what a wonderful night the “Not Just a Fashion Show” was on Friday. The show featured 100 wearable art forms made by twenty-three students from all three undergraduate faculties and across 12 of OCAD U’s programs! The show was sold-out and the energy was palpable! 

This student-led project was developed and curated by Ali Haider (GD) and Jasmine So (ID) with strong support by MAAD Instructor Tarah Burke, myself, and generous funding from the Office of the President.
