He is an extremely talented photographer and graphic designer. This week @xartfuldodger is officially graduating from VCAD here in #Vancouver. I couldn’t be more proud of him. His growth in GD in the past year and a half is unreal. I believe in him and can’t wait for him to start his career may not be there along side you for your entire Portfolio Show but I will be there for a bit and I will be thinking you the entire time. I hope you get the opportunity to meet some potential employers and they fall in love with your work and personality! Never give up. #VCAD #graduation #grownup #graphicdesigner #graphicdesign #photographer #YVR #vancity #beards #menwithbeards #beardedmen #lumberjack

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.
