From fashion retailers such as Nygard International to detail oriented costumes at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Winnipeg has always been one of Canada’s epi-centers for fashion. This past month, MC College introduced the next generation of Designers into Winnipeg’s fashion industry at the 6th annual New Designers Fashion Show.
From silhouettes inspired by Winnipeg’s architecture to angular detailing, the fashion show included collections by MC College graduates: Linda Kroeker, Carley Wood, Maria Shendrik, Adara Pattersib, Regina Martens and Lauren Howie.
