Gerber Technology presented awards to students at two prominent Canadian fashion design institutions during year-end student fashion shows. As in years past, Gerber Technology recognized two graduating students from the School of Fashion Studies at George Brown College in Toronto, Ontario and two graduating students from the Fashion Design Program at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario.

Students at George Brown and Fanshawe have been using Gerber’s creative design suite for more than 15 years, including the industry benchmark AccuMark pattern design, grading and marking software, Fashion Studio design software, Silhouette™ drafting table and various GERBERplotters.

Located in Canada’s fashion capitol, and graduating an average of 80 students a year, George Brown College’s School of Fashion Studies is a program that introduces students to fashion technology and the fundamentals of design, marketing, merchandising, manufacturing and fashion management.

The Fashion Design program at Fanshawe College, which graduates roughly 30 students each year, is a three-year program dedicated to supporting aspiring fashion designers. Students develop their creative design skills, apparel production technologies, visual communications, and business marketing skills. Graduates move on and work in various design roles in such companies as Reebok Canada, Cleo, Sears and Stratford Theatre.

“The experiences our students gain during our three 15-week semesters are very important in becoming a well rounded designer with relevant skills to gain employment in the fashion industry,” explains Leigh-Ann Waller, program coordinator at Fanshawe College. “I am pleased that Gerber Technology has continued to support our college and students for the past 15 years.”

This year Gerber recognized Cong Tam Nguyen and Carmen Ng from George Brown College and Kelsey Marsh and Nicole Flanagan from Fanshawe College for displaying excellence in the application of technology in fashion techniques and design.

“We are proud to support the Canadian fashion industry and its fashion schools which develop top talent each year,” said Alan Seymour, senior account executive for Gerber Technology. “Empowering these students with the necessary technology skills will help them find success throughout their careers. The long-standing partnership between these two institutions and Gerber has enabled thousands of students to receive in-depth knowledge of the inner workings of the fashion industry.”

Gerber provides software and hardware solutions to nearly 1,200 educational institutions in more than 80 countries. As an industry-leading supplier of computer-aided design and product lifecycle management software, the company believes it has a responsibility to continuously help expose students to the latest technology.
