Redefining​ Design Debut at Fashion Art Toronto (FAT) 2019​

Redefining Design is an annual gala fashion show for our School of Fashion, Fashion Arts students’ graduating collections. The collections include menswear, womenswear, genderless, ready-to-wear and avant-garde. Redefining Design empowers student designers to explore different techniques, textile fabrication and sustainability, while maintaining excellence in design, innovation, creativity, and craftsmanship. This year marks the first time that the School of Fashion has presented at Fashion Art Toronto.

The evening of April 25th commenced with 42 Fashion Arts students taking the stage for two back to back shows. This year our Redefining Design Awards were selected by more than 39 industry judges who selected the top 3 students/collections based on innovativeness, craftsmanship, cohesiveness and the potential for the fashion industry.

Congratulations to all of the winners!
