This year, I took on the role of the Executive Communications Director of Mass Exodus, the largest student fashion event in the world produced by Ryerson’s School of Fashion. My role was crucial to the planning and execution of the event as I led the Sponsorship & Hospitality and PR & Marketing Committees. Essentially, I was responsible for all external communication of the Mass Exodus brand to vendors, media and the general public. As the Communications Director, I was accountable for ensuring cohesion and brand consistency amongst all written aspects. This role was extremely time-consuming but rewarding at the same time because I know this event kick-starts the careers of many graduating Fashion Communication and Design students at Ryerson.
The event was held on Wednesday, April 1st, 2015 at the Mattamy Athletic Centre (formerly known as the Maple Leaf Gardens) and was curated by television personality and Style Editor for The Shopping Channel – Jeanne Beker.
Mass Exodus 2015 showcased over 60 4th year Fashion Design final collections featuring more than 300 diverse models on the runway, as well as approximately 65 Fashion Communication capstone projects in the Exhibit.
Needless to say it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I look forward to what next year’s team will produce.
