B.C.'s biggest student fashion show hits the runway April 6 and 7

Tue, Apr 5, 2016

Metro Vancouver, B.C. – This week, 36 emerging designers set to graduate from the Wilson School of Design at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) will 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., features lines that meet market needs, praise the slow fashion movement and incorporate features that are seldom found elsewhere.

Walking the runway this year is a line of gender-neutral kidswear with playful 3D features; surfing apparel with built-in circuitry and heating elements; a period-proof line of lingerie and intimates; tailored menswear that doesn'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 will take place across five sold-out shows at the Imperial Vancouver this Wednesday and Thursday.

A full student media kit is available here.
