UFV fashion design student a finalist

An Abbotsford fashion design student is among 25 finalists in a national competition.

Ning Hao, a student at University of the Fraser Valley, will compete in the Telio Canada’s Breakthrough Designers Competition during Montreal Fashion Week in February.

At the beginning of the school year, students were invited to submit a sketch of a creative garment designed according to precise criteria. A panel of four fashion industry experts then selected 25 finalists from 485 submissions.

During Montreal Fashion Week, the finalists will produce an original garment from six metres of fabric of their choice and then present their design to a jury.

The top five selections each win a $15,000 academic scholarship.
