Breitenmoser places 5th in Montreal

Agassiz-raised fashion student takes home $1000 scholarship from Telio

Sabrina Breitenmoser walks the runway in Montreal with a model wearing her winning creation. Breitenmoser is a student of UFV’s fashion department and will be showing a new line at an upcoming UFV fashion show.

Local resident and graduate of Agassiz Senior Secondary and a second-year University of the Fraser Valley fashion student has won 5th place at the Montreal-based design completion this month.  It is the first time a University of the Fraser Valley student has placed in this competition.

Sabrina Breitenmoser placed 5th for her creative use of fabrics. The bustier dress was constructed out of silver foil and the jacket out of a cotton, spandex blend. The theme of the competition was the Great Canadian North and Sabrina called her outfit “Angutualiqtue”  which means “warming the Igloo.” It was inspired by the northern iconic structure.  Padded, quilted treatments create shape and mass which imitates this renowned dome.  Matte cool greys reflect the seasonal light.

Sabrina submitted drawings of her design to her school and was one of the seven selected to enter the contest from University of the Fraser Valley.   The judges then shortlisted 25 designs from all those entered from across Canada and Sabrina made the cut.

The top 25 were supplied with fabric from Telio Fabrics of Montreal and went to work on creating a unique and authentic creation that would identify their garment as the new “must-have” item for a high-end company while using intricate techniques to incorporate art in fashion.   All 25 were flown to Montreal where they showed their creations at a runway show during Montreal Fashion Week.  At the end, the judges announced the five winners: And Sabrina was honoured to be presented with a $1000 scholarship and fifth place for creative use of fabrics.

For her graduation collection, Sabrina is creating a men’s line which will be shown at the University of the Fraser Valley year end fashion show on April 28 at the University of the Fraser Valley.  There will be a afternoon and evening show for tickets and information contact the school’s fashion department.
