We may have spotted the next Jason Wu or Bibhu Mohapatra! Vancouver Fashion Showcase hosted a design competition of local rising fashion designers, in celebration of the upcoming Fashion’s Night Out Vancouver.

Two hundred guests took in the fashion show at Ayden Gallery, where fashion graduates from Blanche Macdonald and the Visual College of Art & Design competed to win a place in the Vancouver Fashion’s Night Out Runway show, taking place on September 6, 2012 at CBC Studio 40.

Judges included designers Jason Matlo, Rozemerie Cuevas from Jacqueline Conoir, and fashion stylist Luisa Rino, who judged 32 pieces by eight designers, narrowing the list down to two designers for the sudden-death finale where each designer had to transform 5 meters of red jersey fabric into a wrap dress.

While we would have wrapped that fabric into an avant garde rendition of the traditional sari, the winning design by Evan Ducharme was an equally lovely, off-shoulder cocktail dress we’d be happy to wear to the Fashion’s Night Out VIP party.

Jugni Style is a proud sponsor of Fashion’s Night Out Vancouver, taking place on September 6, 2012, around Downtown Vancouver.
