From several of their write-up mashed together…
Vaudeville is Dalhousie’s first ever student-produced charity fashion show featuring all original student garments. It is more than your typical runway show; it is a showcase of fresh and innovative design thinking that aims to challenge ideas of fashion as being purely a commercial industry or as always adhering to conventional norms of beauty.
Vaudeville is a collective of eight student designers who are rejecting fashion stereotypes and clichés to create a diverse range of mini-collections linked only by their uniqueness. The word “Vaudeville” dates to the late 19th and early 20th century and describes a form of variety show popular in North America at the time. Vaudevillian entertainment brought together a range of original acts – from comedy to dance to magic to animal training – into one cohesive theatrical performance. In a nod to this form of variety entertainment, our show aims to bring together a diverse range of design concepts into one unforgettable experience.
100% of the money from every single ticket sold will go directly to Dress for Success Halifax, an incredible local charity that helps economically disadvantaged women in Halifax gain economic independence by providing them with professional attire, job training, and much more.
Attendees aged 19+ are invited after the show to join the Vaudeville cast and crew for an exclusive party at Pacifico Nightclub. Pacifico will be waiving cover charges for all 19+ Vaudeville ticket-holders.
You can get tickets here till Friday night, or at the door (if available).
