2016 Fashion Show

2016 The Show

On April 6 & 7, 2016, 36 emerging designers prepared to graduate from the Wilson School of Design at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) to showcase their innovative, thought-provoking and incredibly stylish collections at B.C.'s biggest student fashion show. 2016 The Show, presented by Tamoda Apparel Inc., featured lines that met market needs, praised the slow fashion movement and incorporated features that are seldom found elsewhere. Walking the runway this year was a line of gender-neutral kids wear with playful 3D features; surfing apparel with built-in circuitry and heating elements; a period-proof line of lingerie and intimates; tailored menswear that didn't shy away from bold prints and colours; clothing fit for glamping, and much, much more. Highlighting the work of fashion design and technology students who have come to KPU from across the province and beyond, 2016 The Show presented five sold-out shows at the Imperial Vancouver to hundreds of guests including industry, students and the local community.
