A multifaceted fashion exhibition will take over the Roundup Centre in Calgary this November, bringing together students, and fashion industry experts as well as both high-profile and Canadian retailers.
Fashion Has No Borders ™ President Sharon Cornwall is excited to bring the Fashion & Accessory Exposé ™ to Calgary after a successful run in Toronto. This new and innovative show will provide retailers with the chance to further develop their reputation as respected members of the industry, as well as present entertainment and promote fashion industry education by connecting business leaders with emerging talent.
“The show will launch and link Canada’s up-and-coming designer superstars with many of our Nation’s quality local source manufacturers, all in support of an industry that is a crucial mainstay of our diversified economy,” said City of Calgary Mayor Dave Bronconnier, “Thousands right here in Calgary are employed in fashion design, manufacturing and retailing. The Fashion Has No Borders™: Fashion & Accessory Exposé™ is their showcase, a chance to prove how very, very good they are.”
Fashion students will have the chance to come and showcase their designs and creations on the runway, and future beauty school students will be able to gain more insight into the colourful world of fashion by talking to industry experts about their experience. Young Calgarians will also have a chance to perform during the ‘Fashion Theatre’ portion of the runway show. Prizes and educational bursaries will be awarded during the exposé, including ‘Designer of the year’ and ‘fashion photographer of the year’.
“Fashion Has No Borders™: Fashion & Accessory Exposé™ is a great opportunity for the Olds College fashion students to get exposure to the industry they are studying,” said Terry Males, Chair of the School of Business at Olds College. “In Western Canada the networking at ground level of the fashion industry is difficult to find. There is no real resource that is easily accessible to young minds to discover the extent of how rewarding our industry can be.”
The wide array of retailers at the exposé will be split into a handful of differing categories. Kiosks featuring vintages pieces, accessories, and sport and street-inspired fashion will each have their own “zones.” Additionally, there will be zones for higher profile designers, menswear, beauty products and personal wellness.
So, for all the fashion lovers and future fashion entrepreneurs out there, get ready for the Fashion Has No Borders™ Fashion & Accessory Exposé™ happening on November 18th and 19th from 12 P.M. until 9 P.M. both days. Cost for entry is , or for high school and beauty school students with ID. For more information visit http://www.fashionhasnoborders.com.
