Who are you wearing?

Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) fashion student Kaitlyn Schreiner is one of 36 designers showcasing their collections in B.C.’s biggest student fashion show, happening next week in downtown Vancouver.

The Langley resident, who graduated from Walnut Grove Secondary in 2012, will unveiled her line Hetki/a moment clothing line over five sold-out shows at the Imperial Vancouver on April 6 and 7.

“I’m very excited to reach this point in my career as a design student. This is something I have been working towards since starting high school sewing classes,” said Schreiner.

“It’s very rewarding to go through this four-year program, and to see months and months of hard work, knowledge, creativity and skills produce a finished collection. I’m very proud of the work I will be presenting in my very first fashion show – it showcases years of dedication and passion.”

After graduation, Schreiner has a long list of things she hopes to accomplish, including taking her contemporary line of womenswear to market.

Schreiner developed her collection as part of her final project before graduating from KPU’s four-year fashion design and technology program this May. The program provides students with a rigorous studio-based design education. The final capstone project involves extensive market and design research, and requires students to create garments that meet a perceived market need.

“The inspiration for my final collection came from my experience in Helsinki. The Nordic and Scandinavian countries fascinate me. They are so beautiful, peaceful and slow-paced, and an overall quality of lifestyle is appreciated and valued. I felt these attributes should be considered in the fashion industry,” said Schreiner. “The concept of the collection is to blur the lines between seasonal trends and to create designs that put an emphasis on quality, longevity, timelessness and uniqueness.”
