Designers include (from left to right): 

Dear DiAri, a collection by Ari, is an intimate journey through the seasons of her life. From vibrant colors to whimsical patterns, her creations exude a youthful exuberance, inviting the viewer to embrace their inner child.

Jul Oliva was born and raised in Cebu, Philippines. For this series she takes inspiration from the rich colours and texture of the corals in the marine sanctuaries near her home.  She is in awe of how the creatures of the ocean can inform fashion. 

Inspired by Albert Einstein's quote, "Creativity is contagious," Mian Lam brings elusive fantasy ideas to life as wearable garments. 

Oyamada is a Vancouver-based Japanese fashion creator and embroidery artist. Inspired by Zen culture and meditation, Oyamada used the Japanese dried garden called Karesansui as a motif for this collection. 

VCC’s Fashion Design & Production Diploma mimics the real-world fashion industry. Students experience a fast-paced production process while learning fundamental skills and the use of industry standard software such as Illustrator and Gerber CAD. The self-directed final garment project is a student’s opportunity to perfect their craft, express their personal sartorial interests, and be showcased at Vancouver Fashion Week
