Everything from peacocks to video games inspires Seneca College’s designers
Seneca’s graduating class of 2012 Redefining Design show highlights students’ life experiences
Toronto, April 11, 2012 --- Seneca’s 2012 Redefining Design will showcase work from the graduating class of the college’s Fashion Arts advanced diploma with a collection of designs that draws inspiration from everything from peacocks and clouds to video games and Barbie.
The runway show is produced by the Fashion Business Management graduating students with runway model makeup provided by graduating students from the Cosmetic Techniques and Management program.
“Students come to Seneca with a huge range of experiences and this is reflected in the inspiration for the designs showcased in this end-of-year show,” said David Agnew, Seneca President. “Redefining Design is a celebration of the success of our students and an opportunity for industry and our alumni to connect with these talented young designers.”
Kapelynn Dawn Cochrane’s line is inspired by the impossible measurements of Barbie and the lengths to which people will go to be perfect.
Lisa Loveday grew up in Thunder Bay, but knew she would have to leave home eventually to pursue her dreams. Her final collection is inspired by a crow chained to the bottom of a canyon, struggling to be free. She has taken this collection to China as part of the 2012 Hempel Awards.
Coryn Belzile spent a summer working at a heritage museum in the town of Geraldton, which is rich in gold. That summer has inspired her final collection, which is entitled “Search for the gold vein.”
Seneca’s Annual Redefining Design show takes place tonight at The Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (6 Garamond Court, Toronto).
