press release – Jessica Biffi at Explore Design
Explore Design 09, The Design Education Fair for Youth is coming up on October 14th and 15th. There are a number of speakers from the fashion industry including Canadian fashion icon Linda Lundstrom, Leigh-Ann Waller from Fanshawe College, jewelery designer Wing-Ki Chan, and Project Runway Canada finalist (and my school chum) Jessica Biffi. From the press release:
From Ryerson U to reality TV stardom to the runway, fashion designer Jessica Biffi illustrates that pursuing a creative education path leads to a successful future. The technical training Biffi received at Ryerson in the field of Fashion Design gave her a winning advantage during the second season of Project Runway Canada. “I wish ED was around when I was deciding what to ‘be’.” Biffi says. “ED gives creative kids like I was that channel full of resources to lead them on their way to a creative future!” Now working under her own label, Jessica Biffi, the Canadian fashion scene is anxiously awaiting the debut of her Spring/Summer collection at Toronto’s LG Fashion Week later in October.
Biffi will chat with kids at ED on Oct. 14!
There are so many fascinating speakers including several graphic designers and artists. To me, ED09 is not only a terrific event for youth but for anyone who is in the early stages of their creative career and interested in learning from their peers. I hope to attend as well.
