Fashion Arts students advance to design competition finals

Fashion Arts students Jing Zhao and Jiaxin Xu, who was featured in a North York Mirror article, were selected among the top 25 finalists in Telio’s Canada’s Breakthrough Designers competition. The annual contest showcases Canada's young, up-and-coming designers and provides students with exposure to the Canadian fashion industry.

All the competitors were required to create a series of sketches, which were reviewed by a jury of fashion industry professionals who chose the finalists.

Jiaxin and Jing are headed to Montreal in February for a gala fashion show event, where they will have the opportunity to make their winning designs.
