Seneca partners with fashion professor Zoran Dobric for RED: Emerging Designers Showcase. It is a runway show that featured five pieces each from eight recent Seneca School of Fashion alumni. Dobric, who has taught fashion design at Seneca for eight years and who is also showing at WMCFW, took on this project with a goal of giving new designers an opportunity to display their talents to an industry audience who otherwise likely would not see their work.
The eight designers chosen to participate in the showcase are: Jing Zhao, Doreen To,Feyanki Law, Jiaxin Xu, Ruby Tsai, Jing Zhao, Ronald Tam and Wanwei Huang. They have drawn inspiration from their contemporaries, their social environment and their vision for the future of fashion. Their influences range from architecture and technology, and their collections feature origami, colour blocked and hand-cut leather.
