Growing up, Mikaela had never thought about pursuing a career in the Fashion Industry. This changed when she took part in MC College’s Beauty Apprentice program where she helped style models backstage for the New Designers Fashion Show.

The experience resonated with her and left her wanting more. Since then, she has helped backstage at Suka Clothing and Sessa Wearables.

From asymmetrical silhouettes to paint splatters, the collection, “Think!”, incorporates a mix of rebellion and an appreciation for art.

Growing up, Anne was constantly on the lookout for unique garments that expressed her individuality. From thrifting to estate sales, she was always reconstructing her finds into one-of-a kind pieces. While working with the fashion label, Gypsy Soul Designs in Kelowna, Anne developed an interest for bohemian fashion.

 

In addition to her background in fashion, Anne pursued an education degree in child development. Although she enjoyed her time as an educational assistant, she wanted to pursue a career in a creative industry: Fashion.
