EMERGENCE is more than a collection of garments; it is a compilation of stories. With more than 70 pieces designed by a talented assembly of Toronto Film School Fashion Design Diploma students and graduates, this show features club wear to evening wear—avant guard to classic. Each piece is inspired by the lived experience of these emerging designers—from a childhood spent selling African fabrics at the market to architecture and the mountains seen in travels in the east. EMERGENCE takes place at Waterworks on March 11 at 4 p.m.
