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 Huong Le

My name is Huong Le and I am from Vietnam. I have been in Canada for about three years.

In my country I studied law and worked in a business for more than ten years. When I came to Canada I decided to change my life and start going to a school to study fashion design.

At VCAD I have learned a lot about fashion, for example, how to design clothing from a concept to the actual garment. The most important thing I have learned was to keep practicing.

Prior to VCAD I didn’t know anything about drawing or sewing because I had never done anything like that before. My decision to pursue fashion design was very surprising for my family, friends and even me.

When I designed my collection and I was thinking about a woman of my age who wants to be feminine, elegant and classy. Beauty of a woman is my inspiration for the fashion design.
