This annual event is run by Ryerson’s School of Fashion and the 2019 show featured 19 student-designed collections. The theme was An Inevitable Shift, a message that aims to break commonalities and explore new ways to incorporate diversity, sizing and accessibility in fashion.

Image Arts (Function)

Function is a visual art and culture publication made by the students of Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts. Through the interplay of art and conversation, Function takes the pulse of our current student body, and gives a platform to the Image Arts community through a wide range of interviews, lectures, articles and exhibition reviews. Its primary focus is the work of current students, recent alumni, and professionals working with and around lens-based media.
