MEET SARAH

Meet Sarah: Designer Manager
Sarah is the one who deals with designers who want to take part in this season's Fabricated. 


At 22, Sarah has got a lot in her plate. This Calgary-raised gal started her love for art through performing arts particularly dance. With the creativeness flowing in her vein, she then moved on to her other love which is make-up and graduated with a diploma in Makeup Artistry from Artists Within School of Makeup. 

Today, Sarah is handling the booking and development contracts for one of Fabricated's sponsors which is Artist Group -- an artist and creative agency that brings all the people in the industry from photographers, models, make-up/hair stylists and the likes. 

We cannot wait to show you the line-up for this season's Fabricated and it's all thanks to Sarah!

MEET LIZ

Meet Liz: Set Designer
Liz is the one responsible for the overall set design of the runway and the venue. 


You know when they say there are no words to describe a person? Well, Liz Nandee is the exact opposite. In fact, there are so many words to describe this world renowned Interior Designer. Liz is the owner of Florida-based interior design firm called Basic Black Designs. With 8 years of experience under her belt, Liz's awesome talent and company were featured in several design showcases, events, functions, as well as for many charitable organizations and also appears regularly on TV, radio and web clips. 

She also founded the Design Association of Calgary (DAC) and created Designs 2 Desire which aims to focus on designs that are unique. Designs 2 Desire was such a hit that it soon after took the attention of web TV producers and is now an upcoming Calgary based web TV. 

If that is not enough, she is also a part time instructor at Mount Royal University for the Interior Decorating Program and is also the Design Editor and co-founder of State Tic, an international design + fashion magazine. 

When design meets fashion (as what Avenue entitled the 5-page spread they did for her), Liz is the person to call. She is not just an interior designer of residential and commercial space but she is also a runway/fashion event set/venue extraordinaire. Watch out how Liz transforms this year's Fabricated stage! We certainly cannot wait!

This Fashion Marketing student from Olds College is very promising. Ashley, who recently just moved from small town Red Deer to big city Calgary is not just any fashion student.

MEET BIANCA

Meet Bianca Dayrit: Event Coordinator
Bianca is in charge of the event planning and keeping all of Fabricated's team in place.


Bianca is not new to the fashion industry. In fact, this comic book fanatic knows how to combine fashion + music all at the same time. She currently manages producer/DJ, LaTourette, who is a known artist based in France and she also writes for Beatroute Magazine -- a Western Canada monthly arts and entertainment paper with a predominant focus on music - local, independent or otherwise. 

Linguistics graduate at Mukogawa Women's University in Nishinomiya, Japan, Bianca learned a lot about expressing herself with clothing, fashion, and getting past the fear of looking different and interesting to others. Thus writing for local magazine called Freq which is designed for the confident, the fashionable, and the street smart. 

Pretty sure without this girl FABRICATED Team would be lost so we are most certainly glad to have her on board! An organized team = an awesome show!
