UBC Fashion Show 2010 – Fashion is Freedom

UBC Fashion Show

I attended the the UBC Fashion Show on March 20, 2010 at the UBC Aquatic Centre, which was a pretty cool venue for the show. The runway was installed above the outdoor pool, which made for some interesting shots with the reflections in the water.  The UBC International Relations Students Association presented the show, entitled "Fashion is Freedom," an exploration of the theme of fashion as art and how its expression reflects political freedom. The show featured the work of  designers from Vancouver.
