Humber’s 2019 Fashion Show, “Elements of Humber”, brought together students and notable local designers for a spectacular showcase. Planned by a committee formed entirely of Fashion Arts and Business students, the event drew a crowd of fellow students, friends and families of the organizers, as well as a few popular personalities from the Toronto fashion scene. It was quite notable that every person involved with the show including photographers and majority of the models were Humber students or alumni.

Brosche Bridal opened the show with gorgeous gowns and elaborate fascinators. Cherith B Designs played with sheer transparent fabrics and glittering accents for her womenswear collection, while Zane Barlas dazzled us with sophisticated and chic business casual and formal wear.

Up next was Shelli Oh, who gave us some serious fairytale vibes in ethereal gowns. Joseph Tassoni, recipient of this year’s Designer Support of the Year award, stunned in bold coats of bright hues and big but fancy fur collars.

Right after, Kyle Gervacy wowed us with a themed collection of contrasting bright red and white African inspired apparel for both men and women. The male models rocked the runway with non-traditional suits and jackets for JM Trends created from matte velvets and shiny metallics. Finally, ZOFF closed the show with beautiful sparkly dresses covered in intricate sequin designs.

Student designer and Infuse staff member Tenae Atkinson launched her brand Tama & Co with a line of crocheted tops, beanies and dresses that had a noticeably meticulous attention to detail. Fellow Humber student Rohma Anzar launched Rohma Anzar Couture – her line of custom couture gowns with daring, modern silhouettes.

With Humber’s fashion and media programs putting on a spectacular show every year, we are already excited to see what the graduating class of students cook up next year!
