On the 14th of February, 2014 VCAD students celebrated Valentine ’s Day in Vancouver, BC. We had a small exhibition of the hearts with what we love. Feel free to post your comments underneath because we want to know what you think.

Here is what one of the Graphic Design program students says about VCAD: “The one-on-one time with my instructors allows for plenty of useful feedback. All of them are down to earth and very straightforward about what is good and what needs work. The small class sizes allows for a lot of class involvement in every session, making for a much different experience than sitting in a lecture hall. Overall, my experience at VCAD has been great. I really enjoy sharing my entire school career with people that have the same interests as me.”

VCAD Fashion Interview with Zoe Collins

My name is Zoe Collins.

I decided to go into fashion because a) I got obsessed with sewing and I knew I wanted to make something creative with my hands and b) everybody wears clothes; so, I see fashion as a great way of portraying your own style, your creativity and your artistic vision, and sharing it with other people in a very accessible way.

I was really struck when I first entered this program at how determined my fellow colleges were and it really spurred me to take it more seriously as I would have to. Going in to the program I knew very little about the fashion world, about design, this and that. I liked art and I liked making stuff, that’s all I knew. I thought I might be making dresses one day, but who knows.

Coming into the program and seeing all of those people who are so into it really made me to step up a notch.

Now when I think about fashion, there is a whole slew of things. I think that my vision of what fashion is has really expanded since starting at VCAD and since finishing at VCAD as well. To me now it’s a whole spectrum of self-expression as to where you hold yourself – it’s your posture, it’s not just the clothes you wear, but the way you wear them.

VCAD Fashion Interview with Tennille Oppen

Tennille Oppen. I was born in Edmonton, Alberta. I moved here about five years ago to go to the school and I have been living here since.

My collection was really inspired by the process of dyeing fabric; so, experimented a lot with natural dyes, synthetic dyes and what kind of fabrics would take different types of dyes and how they interacted together. It is supposed to be fun and light hearted, and not to be taken too seriously, which is how I like things.

I was inspired by 1930’s surreal art; so, it’s a little bit strange especially those couple of pieces. I designed all of my own prints on fabrics. I really like the surrealism aspect of the things, which are a bit larger than life and finding the way to tailor them to a wearable commodity.

Whether you like it or not subconsciously or consciously you judge someone for the first 30 seconds of meeting them and a large part of that is what they wear, how they look, how they present themselves and you want to pay attention to that because even if you don’t think it is important, it’s a lot more important than the most people think it is.

VCAD Fashion Interview with Ross Victoriano

My name is Ross Victoriano.

My collection is about Shaolin monks. It is actually originated from China where the martial arts were first formed. I thought it was an excellent opportunity to get my Asian culture especially because I am half Filipino and half Chinese. That’s why I used Shaolin monks as my inspiration.

At the beginning my collection was full of colors and full of details of every kind and then I’ve learned to minimalize it and go into one direction where it will tell a story to the people about those clothes.

The changes that I had I think are paying attention to every detail on making garments because when I was still studying I didn’t care about details, I always focused on the designs, but when I learned sewing I got to know more about paying attention to the details.

When I take inspiration I always get it from the people around me and people I see one the streets, that I get inspired from. Also, those are things I haven’t seen before.

VCAD Fashion Interview with Joshua Shin

My name is Joshua Shin and I am from Korea.

I always loved fashion and how people dress, and I was interested in shopping too. I was thinking about my career and I made a decision that fashion is what I like the most. I realized that hotel management was not my course; therefore, I switched to the course that I like which is fashion. I did some research on the internet and came across VCAD. I’ve learned a lot about what to expect, which was very good.

I like classic looks and also I love Alexander McKimm’s crazy looks.

My collection is about nightmare mixed with the Asian looks – really dark, but kind of unisex. I always wanted to make that kind of collection and I think that it was the only time to do what I wanted to do. So I did it.

I am following my dream.

VCAD Fashion Interview with Olivia Stewart

I’m Liv. I was born on Vancouver Island.

I grew up sewing with my grandmother from a very young age and realized that I had passion for the fashion and clothing; so, couple of years ago I went here to Vancouver and took the program at VCAD. I have been working on clothing ever since and mastering my craft.

My collection is called “Pioneer Provisions” and it has been inspired by the silhouette of the moth and cocoon shape. I kind of find that the moth has been an underdog of the butterflies and that is why I took an inspiration from the moth and based my clothing on that.

I think in fashion personal taste has been very opinionated and no matter what you make there will be always someone out there who hates what you make or is going to love it; so, it is a matter of putting yourself out there and finding those people who are going to love your work for what it is and how you make it.

I think to intrude your own vision and having outlets to express yourself is key. Just really a way to express what is going on inside of the person and that is what it is for me.

I see clothing as a functional thing that everybody needs, everyone has to wear it and it’s also a way to express who you are inside. Everyone wakes up in the morning and choses what to wear to show that’s the type of person they are and I think that is the most important thing for me in fashion.

3D Modeling Animation Art and Design at VCAD

My name is Roneel. I graduated from VCAD. I took 3D Modeling Animation Art and Design program.

VCAD was really nice as well as teachers because it was very easy to talk to them. They helped us out a lot. We had a lot of fun. It was very easy to model with them and to get feedback and advice.

My demo reel is based on a scrap yard or in other words a bone yard. Most of the objects there are airplanes. In fact you can see a crashed airplane as the camera goes into the interior of it. Also, in the demo reel I have a Western style gas station and run-down 1948 Chevrolet truck. It was really fun to model. Just for laugh I put a space shuttle in there too.

As for the future I would love to go into the 3D modeling or visual effects. 3D animation would be fine too.

In the beginning I would like to work for Nickelodeon or any small studio, but in five years’ time I would love to work for Pixar and Disney.
