Edmonton is home to some awesome local designers who are also our fashion graduates: Workhall Studio, Suka Clothing and Eve + Enoch are just a few!
Last night, MC College introduced new blood into Edmonton’s fashion scene. Twelve graduates from our fashion program showcased their collection at the New Designers Fashion Show and also launched Western Canada Fashion Week.
In attendance were, MC College staff and faculty members, Joe Cairo (President of MC College), John Chwyl (The Fashion Guy), Amber Victoria (loveambervictoria.com), Tracy Poulin (Edmonton Public Schools), Kingsway Mall, Workhall Studio, LUXX ready to wear and Marshall’s Fabrics, to name a few.
Designed and made in Edmonton, the show included everything from military inspired silhouettes to Zimbabwean inspired prints and floral appliques.
Congrats to the emerging designers on a fabulous show last night: Anne Hole, Braden Carleton, Gloria Malaba, Lillian Obianuju Onyejiuwa, Mikaela Supple, Martina Hrycun, Nadine Elmarsafy, Aike Zhumagulova, Listah Mutsaro, Shawna White, Maggie Chow and Bayenah Batterjee.
The show also featured three MC College Alumnus and local designers: Kendra Evertson of ‘Kendra Lee’ and Gabriela Cruz of ‘Cruz Clothing’ and Ange McGill.
For a second year in a row, we invited a squad of High School students from St. Joseph High School and Harry Ainlay, AKA: Beauty Apprentices to assist backstage with dressing models, hair and makeup.
