WHY NOT CHANGE the ?RAGS TO RICHES??
(NBCCD, Fredericton NB 23/01/08) - Third year Fashion Designers from the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design are turning their ?Rags to Riches.?[/b]
From September to December 2007, eight young designers stepped up to the plate and created stunning One-of-a-Kind designs from ?throw away? material traditionally used to mock up a concept. Instead of silk or satin, velvet, or tulle, it?s cotton muslin that was tucked, pleated, poofed, stitched, embroidered, dyed, textured, buttoned, zipped, sewed, and pressed into catwalk ready haute couture. Now they?re ready to bring their dresses out of the studio.
?This project really challenges their imaginations: to take something as potentially uninteresting as muslin and turn it into these fabulous couture gowns,? said Fashion Studio head Ellen Woolaver.
Don?t wait for the 10th Annual Spring Fashion Show (eXposed) to be amazed. Come to the Gallery at NBCCD for a sneak peak on Thursday, February 7th from 5-7 pm when live models stride through our space and show off this exciting new work from the graduating class of the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design.
During the evening meet fashion photographer and NBCCD graduating student Cody Caissie and see the results of his fashion shoots with these models - displayed in frames that decorate the gallery walls.
The dresses and photographs will stay on display from February 7 ? March 10, 2008. For more information, or to arrange interviews, please contact Karen Ruet at 457-6805, or email email@example.com
