Knit Fast Dye Yarn showcases textile students' work
Knit Fast Dye Yarn was a fitting title for an avant-garde fashion show by graduating textile students at College of the North Atlantic in St. John's.
The highlight was a fashion show last Thursday at the LSPU Hall.
From Chanterelle, artist Mary Decker’s mushroom-inspired dress dyed with fallen Maple leaves, to Dawn Labert’s Frankenstein bride creation, the show was full of eye catching and memorable designs.
Also on display were silky smooth seal skin jackets. The edgy collection called Project Seal encouraged the students to specialize their skills working with fur and leather while supporting the local seal apparel industry.
Creations from the Textiles: Craft & Apparel Design graduates will be on display when an exhibition opens Saturday at 2 p.m. It runs for two weeks at the Anna Templeton Centre in downtown St. John's.
