Design academy puts on fashion show

on Wednesday,June 29,2011 23:06


Pacific Design Academy fashion design students recently had the opportunity to showcase their creations for the past year at the annual fashion show, according to the Times Colonist.

The show, which featured the designs of juniors and seniors, took place in Market Square in Vancouver this past Friday night. The designs were colorful and vibrant with shorts and back-exposing shirts the most popular among collections. One designer was inspired by the Japanese earthquake, and her items were solely red and white, according to the news source.

The school recently decided to expand the show to cover both seniors and juniors. This way, seniors have the experience of two shows before they graduate from the program, the media outlet reports.

Prospective fashion designers may be interested in how much they can earn as a professional. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual salary for a designer was around $61,000 in 2008. In addition, the best place to land an entry level job in this field is to target design firms that produce mass-market clothing.
