Press Release: Fashion Institute Charity Fashion Show
On April 5th, 2014, The Fashion Institute invites you to step inside The Factory – a world where apparel and costuming students take raw material and construct pieces that are anything but mass-produced; a secret workspace that echoes with the sound of steely gazed models as their well-heeled feet pound the cold concrete.
Those who enter The Factory will not leave as they came. Let your mind wander this mysterious space of molten metals and churning cogs as we “steel” the show…
When: Saturday, April 5, 2014
Where: Bow Valley College, South Campus. 2nd Floor.
345-6 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2G 4V1
Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite
The Fashion Marketing students, led by instructor Anne Blackburn, have produced a show that will feature the designs of first and second year Fashion Apparel and Costume Cutting students from both the Olds and Calgary campuses. The event, Hosted by Ania Basak of Fashion Calgary, will also include pieces from alumna Jamie Block whose collection.
For a number of years, the Fashion Marketing Program students have had the opportunity to showcase their skills with an end of term fashion show. The students represent 6 committees that plan and implement every aspect of the event from start to finish.
A portion of the proceeds from fundraising and ticket sales will be donated to Inn from the Cold. This local non-profit provides emergency shelter, programs and support for homeless families and individuals with the goal of building healthy, stable families, and ending homelessness. Donations of “Top 5 Needed Items” will be accepted onsite.
