Spring is here and it means it is time for UFV's Fashion Design program's annual graduation fashion show on April 29th.  Tickets are available to purchase online or in person in the UFV Library (Abbotsford) or at the Bookstore.
UFV library (Abbotsford) is featuring the Fashion Design collection for this month's display.  Come in and see the amazing collection of books, DVDs and journals about fashion design, textiles, designers and the fashion industry.  On display as well are two garments designed and created by two recent UFV Fashion Design graduates.

Design by Ning Hao
Ning Hao created this garment, pictured right, which has flare and drama.  Ning was one of 25 finalists from 485 submissions chosen to compete in Télio Canada’s Breakthrough Designers Competition in February 2013 during Montreal Fashion Week.  Click here for more information.

Design by
Kim Kokaszka
Kim Kokaszka designed and created this garment, pictured left,  in the Shibori style and technique.  Kokaszka was the only Canadian student selected from over one hundred entries for the International Shibori Symposium at Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2011.  This garment's delicate yet dynamic silhouette illustrates the Shibori style superbly.  Click here for more information.

The visual allure of fashion design collection is on display highlighting internationally acclaimed designers and their work, as well as books on textiles, pattern drafting and millinery.
