La Salle College International

Transforming Names Into Fashion Labels

For ladies (and men, if applicable) who wish to take their interests in fashion, design, and makeup into the next level, here’s one place where you can explore, nurture and expand them. La Salle College International.

LSCI is offering from weekend classes to 6-Month, 1-Year, and 2-Year International Certificates. They also have Evening Classes that can accommodate working ladies who either wants to dabble in the field, further their skills or make a career change perhaps.

Courses you can take are: Fashion Design, Fashion Marketing, Patternmaker, Fashion Stylist, Fashion Buyer, Basic Fashion Design, Basic Garment Production, Visual Merchandising, Artistic Makeup, Sewing, Draping, Fashion Jewelry & Accessories, Fashion Illustration, Fashion Photography, Drawing and Textile.

During the Hat Momma and Friends Christmas Bazaar, I stumbled upon a display of their students’ works. Creations were seemingly made of recycled materials.

Fashion in the Bag
by Margarita Regala

“Plastic ‘sando’ grocery bags are layered and paired with a bodice entirely covered with coiled plastic drinking straws.”

Biker Chic
by Sonja Lehman

“A bustier of rubber tire interior contrasts with a skirt of patchworked orange sack bags.”

Soda Pop Art
by Liza Padilla

“A 60s mini-dress is fully embellished with paillettes cut from plastic soda bottles.”

And there were Papier-mâché’d bags and decors on display, too.
