  • Associate Professor, Henry Navarro Delgado was selected for the 2018 Junction Artist-in-Residence (JAR) Program based on his experience creating site-specific fashion projects in diverse communities. Navarro designed, The Junction Collection--a fashion project informed by the dualities inherent to life in Yukon. On Saturday, April 27 Navarro will be showing his collection at the Fashion Art Toronto (@fashionarttoronto) 2019 event in Daniels Spectrum.

The Junction Collection was centred in the rural town of Haines Junction, a geographic and cultural space shared by both First Nations and Non-First Nations communities. Like the town, The Junction Collection pairs materials and concepts, which although contrasting, complement each other. More information available on his collection, here: https://www.facebook.com/junctionCollection.

Navarro shared, “it was a very uncertain yet richly insightful undertaking.” He had to let go of personal expectations and embrace the rhythm and idiosyncrasies of rural Yukon. This allowed him to produce a series of fashion designs that authentically capture the ethos of life in Yukon. He added, “Yukoners take their time but once they open to you, their support, trust and generosity is boundless.” The Haines Junction Artist-in-Residence Program (JAR) is a three-month long fashion residency that invites fashion and textile designers to create works inspired by Kluane’s natural and cultural setting.

  • Meet Laurence Fortin-Côté (@laurencefortincote), a MA Fashion candidate. Cote has slowly carved her way into the fashion industry, starting as a content creator on Instagram, building her reputation and credibility in the Toronto fashion scene. After completing her first semester in the program she decided to apply to an internship in the Fashion Direction department at HBC. She shared, that was the best decision I have made since it later got me the opportunity to enter the company as a full-time Assistant Fashion Director. What at the time felt like a great opportunity to get a first experience turned out to be the turning point of her future career for the company.

Cote shared, the program gave me the confidence I needed to feel comfortable and valuable for this type of position. It definitely gave me the knowledge I needed in order to feel like I belong in this field.

Cote’s advice to prospective MA Fashion students is, stay proactive and always seek opportunities. She believes the MA Fashion program is a great way to find your place in the wide world of fashion and to give you the right tools to succeed in any area you wish to pursue. There is a place for everyone, but it is definitely a competitive industry which is why she thinks being a graduate fashion student sets you apart!

  • Meet Romana Mirza (@rbmirza), a MA Fashion candidate. Mirza’s major research project (MRP), titled “Women Undercover: Exploring the Intersectional Identities of Muslim Women through Modest Fashion” examines Muslim women’s intersectional identities by studying their fashion consumption practices. The goal of this work is to uncover new insights about the relationship between women, modesty and their Western identities, to advance diversity in women’s fashion, as well as to understand how digital storytelling can be utilized to disseminate fashion studies research.

Mirza is a brand strategist, researcher, and scholar who brings 25+ years’ experience in marketing product design and design disciplines to the fashion studies. She decided to pursue modest fashion through scholarship and research with the goal of breaking down growing resentment toward Muslims and the resurgence of society’s need to legislate women’s bodies.

Mirza’s advice to prospective MA Fashion students is, use every single facility the university provides to help you through the program. This is the one place in the world where people are sitting in offices waiting to help you. This doesn't happen in the world outside academia. Discuss ideas for your papers with your professors weeks before they are due, even getting feedback on preliminary ideas goes a long way toward a great mark. Use the writing clinic and every graduate support service available to you from the Writing Clinic, not just for editing but to understand how to write paper proposals, to develop outlines for your writing or apply a theoretical lens. Go on a graduate student writing retreat! See a doctor at the medical clinic, use the mediation room, book study rooms in the graduate study area in the Student Learning Centre, swim, it's included in your fees! This is a highly supportive environment, utilize it to the max.
