It was a super busy week for the Merchandising students. Midterms, projects and their final photo shoots. Here are some behind the scenes snaps of our students lapping up a bit of fashion luxury at the Atelier campus.
The rain may have been in full force but that didn’t stop photographer Andrew Volk from creating his epic images!
Student Alyssa Jarvis did two striped back psychedelic music fest looks.
Connie Leung embraced her love of anime and helps her model soar through the clouds.
Erika Kikuchi played with her grown up dolls in these fun and fashion forward looks.
Ivan Jimenez went all man this time around. His hyper athletic supermodel dripping in animal print and desert storm fashion made all our hearts flutter.
Rebekah Lipsey-Ouimet explored the music fest scene as well as a graphic power woman on the prowl. Sounds like Rebekah in a nutshell to us!

I spent the day at a creative photo shoot hanging out with a few of Blanche Macdonald’s most creative minds including Artistic Director, Photographer, Stylist and BMC Fashion Instructor Tyler Udall and Makeup Pro and BMC Instructor Jon Hennessey. Being a late 60’s/early 70’s-inspired photo shoot, it was awesome watching the collaboration and seeing how these pros put their twist on a decade we never lived or were too young to remember. We shot at the Waldorf Hotel, which is decked out in Teak wood, palm trees, random Tiki art, 1960’s wallpaper and shag carpet – a pretty perfect place for the shoot in a quirky sort of way.
This is Alicia, our model for the shoot.
Tyler was artistically inspired by the incredible American Photographer Stephen Shore and the constructed angular pieces of the late 60’s by Fashion Designer and legend, Pierre Cardin. When young Alicia arrived, he quickly adapted to her young and sweet appearance, keeping with the colour scheme and softness of textures explored. The concept transformed, in Tyler’s words, to “an early 70’s disgruntled pre-teen on holiday with her parents and not wanting to be there”, which you can totally imagine when you see these final shots!
Take a look at the series of behind-the-scenes pics along with the final, developed photos!

I know. I don’t want to say it either, but Summer is officially coming to an end… so jump through all those sprinklers while you can (and look gorgeous while doing so)!
