Last night the 2013 graduating class of the Fashion Design program at MC College Edmonton showcased their graduating collections in a stunning runway fashion show as part of Western Canada Fashion Week. The collections varied from flowery, flirty resort wear to futuristic street wear. The show, held at the Transalta Arts Barns, was completely sold out with a capacity crowd of 300 guests, family, friends and fashionistas.
Even the fashion experts were impressed. Avenue magazine tweeted “Really impressed with the student designs from MC College”. Local Fashion Guy, John Chwyl from Kingsway Mall said “….the students’ collections were very impressive. MC College should be proud…and not just of the talented students but the teacher support for them, that is obviously equally as talented. My two stand out collections were Heather Curtis and Daniel Bullock. I know I will be able to say ‘I saw Daniel’s graduation collection’ when he becomes a huge star!’”
The graduates: Heather Curtis, Krzysia Schwartz, Millie Cameron, Katherina Buyer, Farrah Hart, Aman Chahal, Jessica Barthel, Sneha Parvez, Aimee Ricard, Imarie Darkstone, Yushan Zhang, Ashlynn King, Jessalyn Vickery and Daniel Bullock had their moment in the spot light amidst photographers’ flashing cameras and cheers from the crowd.
The annual graduating fashion show is truly a showcase of MC College student and staff talent. Technical Advisor, Renato Candia, and Esthetics Instructor, Bryce Munroe, supervised the backstage work of Hairstyling and Esthetics students as they created beautiful looks for eighteen models at a frantic pace. It was a great night all around.
