NSCAD students to present two fashion shows
Apr '13
The Wearable Art Show and the NSCAD senior students’ end-of-term fashion show are combining and getting a new identity this year—thanks to the input of NSCAD design students.

NSCAD textiles/fashion students joined forces with NSCAD design students to develop a new name—“Runaway” — for the two annual shows, which for the first time will take place on the same day.

"I think the combination show is a really great opportunity to show the community and industry the different types of work that is done at NSCAD—the craftsmanship of the fashion show contrasted with the more crazy and fun wearable art show work,” said Katrina Craig, a student organizer.

Runaway will be presented on Sunday, April 21 at the Spatz Theatre (in Citadel High School), 1855 Trollope St., Halifax. The student fashion show starts at 6:30 p.m. and the wearable art show at 8:30 p.m.

“This project was a good teaching tool, because the students got real feedback on a project that wasn’t theoretical—the posters, tickets and programs will actually get produced,” said May Chung, NSCAD design professor.

Students in Prof. Chung’s third-year class (DSGN 3521) were tasked to conduct research and brainstorm visual concepts for the two combined shows and to come up with the name. Finalists included Stephanie McVicar, Janelle LaMothe and Lesley Steffler; Stephanie's designs for the posters, tickets and programs were selected.

It’s been a great learning experience all round. Textile/fashion students Katrina Craig, Elliot Mussett and Janelle Brown are busy attending to the myriad of details that go into the planning of a fashion show and corralling dozens of student designers, models and volunteers in the process. Professors Robin Muller and Gary Markle are the faculty advisors for Runaway.

“Getting to plan the Wearable Art Show is an excellent opportunity for us as students to get a first-hand experience in the inner workings of a fashion show,” said Janelle Brown. “This project is providing us all with the experience to kick start our careers.”

Proceeds for Runaway go to the AIDS Coalition of Nova Scotia and a student scholarship fund at NSCAD.
