Mass Exodus 2015
World MasterCard Fashion Week may have ended last week, but great designs are still hitting the runway in Toronto. In its 27th year, the capstone project for Ryerson fashion students, Mass Exodus, is drawing big names like Stacey McKenzie, who ran workshops for the models, and Jeanne Beker, the curator of the April 1 evening show. Beker said she narrowed down the 60 collections of the graduating class to her final picks based on what designs told a unique story. The collections also had to embody the school of fashion’s three guiding principals: diversity, heritage and innovation. “It’s truly a look into fashion’s future,” Beker said of the final 17. If this is the future of fashion, we’re going to need our best pair of shades, because it’s hella bright.
