Vegan wear, fine lingerie for breast cancer survivors and high fashion for motorcycle riders were among the Kwantlen student creations showcased in Richmond Tuesday.

Graduates of Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s bachelor of design, fashion and technology program saw their final 32 trend-setting projects paraded down the catwalk at River Rock Show Theatre.
