Fanshawe’s annual show for graduating fashion students plays

It’s a beginning and an end.

The annual Unbound fashion show, featuring the creations of Fanshawe College’s graduating fashion design students, will be held Thursday at the Norton Wolf School of Aviation Technology at London International Airport.

The 11th annual show, this year called Craft and Machine, is the final takeoff for the students before they fly on their own.

“We’re starting to get tired, but we’re very excited because we’re almost there,” said Julie Doucet, spokesperson for the event organized entirely by the students, who pick the venue and theme and organize the event with help from several other programs at the college, including special events planning, music industry arts, photography and technical theatre production.

“You want everything to be perfect. You’ve dreamed about this when you were a little kid and this is our reward for all the effort, just to see our creations on the runway and fitting so well.”

The theme of Craft and Machine was chosen for the techniques the students use — some dependent on new technology such as 3-D printing and others working with needle and thread to sew on the tiniest of embellishments aimed at bringing fabric to life.

“Most people come into the program not knowing even how to sew,” said student Manar Shams. “You see the skills grow and the ideas come to life.”

The evening, which usually draws a crowd of more than 300, includes a pre-show cocktail party at 7 p.m. and a New York-style runway show.

Their five-look collections range from casual and dressy daywear to outerwear and evening wear that will be evaluated by a panel of industry experts, including Canadian fashion icons David Dixon and Franco Mirabelli.

The runway will be built inside a hangar, the show surrounded by planes and helicopters as the lights flash, music blares and models strut.

The fashions on the runway were created by 18 students and are based on trends for 2018.

One significant change this year is there will be no competition — no judging of the best garment or best collection.

“We have had such strong diverse collections over the last few years, the judges were having such a hard time selecting just one winner,” explained Loren Carriere, fashion design professor and Unbound director.

“Honestly, they are all winners. We wanted to make the event an inclusive celebration for all designers.”Read more at: |

Likewise, is it out of fashion for more seasoned individuals to go to college? It appears that most bosses incline toward conventional age college (and secondary school) understudies for temporary positions and externships , and they additionally appear to favor genuine understudies as opposed to late graduates. Somebody please convey me a la mode on this.
