From the jewellerybusiness.com website:

"Sponsored by CJExpos and Beverly Hills Jewellers, the competition—which carries the theme, ‘An Evening in Paris’—asks students to design a piece with an estimated retail value of $1500. Now in its third year, the scholarship bestows a $3000 grant on a student enrolled in a Canadian college offering a jewellery program, while the school itself receives a $1000 gift. The pieces will be on display at CJExpo’s Toronto and Edmonton shows, where attendees can vote for the winner."

"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.

MAAD Faculty Lynne Heller defends her doctoral

Tuesday, March 8, 2016 - 6:15pm

Please join me in congratulating Assistant Professor Lynne Heller who recently defended her doctoral dissertation titled AVATAR DAUGHTERS: Envisioning a Spectrum between the Material/Virtual through Feminist Theory. Lynne conducted her doctoral studies within the Graduate Research and Education Programme in Gender, Culture and Identity in the UCD Humanities Institute, College of Arts and Humanities at University College Dublin, Ireland.

Lynne holds a joint appointment with the Faculty of Design and the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Science. Lynne joins a growing complement of research and practice-engaged doctorate faculty at OCAD University. I commend her and all these faculty members for the hard work and dedication required to earn this highest academic degree and wish them well in translating their efforts into successful research agendas.

Congratulations Lynne! 

Dr. Gayle Nicoll, Dean, Faculty of Design
