Tuesday, April 26, 2016 - 4:00am

OCAD University’s auditorium was transformed into a quasi-catwalk on Friday April 22 for Not Just a Fashion Show. The event spotlighted 100 wearable works of art created by 23 students from 12 programs. Mirrored masks, sparkling crystals and LED-infused fabrics added a glow to the outfits, which ranged from whimsical to highly functional.

The high-energy student-led project was developed and curated by Ali Haider (Graphic Design) and Jasmine So (Industrial Design) with support from faculty members Tarah Burke and Dorie Millerson and funding from the Office of the President.
