Proceeding Mass Exodus 2011: Zenith+Nadir, where graduating students in Ryerson’s fashion design program showcased their collections, the fashion school held another fashion show this Wednesday. Second and third-year students in the fashion design program unveiled some of their dresses at a runway show that took place at the Arcadian Court in downtown Toronto.
During the eveningwear show, it became clear that students learn a lot in two to three years of studying fashion design at Ryerson University. Designs were largely experimental; many students incorporated lace, trails, tiers, drapes and cut-outs in their dresses. Some were hits and some were misses, but overall the event showed a range of young fashion talents. Here are some of the student designs that made their way down the catwalk:
While some dresses looked like they would be fit for the prom, others could be imagined on the likes of Lady Gaga or Taylor Momsen. Like Mass Exodus 2011: Zenith+Nadir, the show’s execution was impressive and professional. Audience members were ushered into a lounge before and after the show, where they enjoyed exotic appetizers while mingling with other guests.
