I was honored to be an invited guest of the 20th Annual NBCCD Fashion Show. With an over night bag packed I headed from Halifax for the 4 hour drive to Fredericton with excitement to see what the latest group of graduates and returning Alumni were going to showcase on the runway that evening. And they did not disappoint!

Returning to the stage were previous graduates:

Chavah Lindsay Chavah Designs, Kayleigh Saad Lunar OfferingsMelanie Bradley, Virtuosew, Sherry Kinnear,  Kelly Hill, Emily Daigle, Bronwen Robbins Delirium’s Edge Designs

As well as a showcase challenge done by the first year students… but the night was truly about celebrating the efforts of their 3 most recent graduates, about to embark on life outside their school hallways in hopes of pursuing dreams within the fashion industry…  Frankie Francis, Kyle Kirby & Trish Barlow-Arcaro

I was especially excited as I had the opportunity to meet with these wonderful individuals when they came as a school outing to Atlantic Fashion Week in the Fall and I hope to see them on our runways soon!
