On Sunday, September 16, EvelineCharles Academy students wowed the audience at Western Canada Fashion Week's (WCFW) Student Showcase. They put their imaginations and skills to work as they prepared two dynamic themes for the show: Mad Circus and The Great Gatsby.

The Academy's student advisor, Nicole, has modeled in Academy events for three years. When asked to reflect on this year's showcase, she stated, "The Mad Circus theme was dark, twisted, driven and unforgettable."

"Nothing can compare to the vibe of the show when you're in the lineup backstage ready to strut your stuff. The music is pumping, heels are clicking, and this year we had our lovely and talented Heather belt out two songs. THAT in itself gave me butterflies of excitement," Nicole says.
"No matter what your role throughout the day of the show, hair, makeup, or wardrobe, there are big smiles all around. Everybody is so excited to be part of it."
