As the largest student-run fashion event in the world, Mass Exodus 2015 has set the international precedent for innovation in fashion and event production. The production team is comprised of fourth year students in the School of Fashion’s Fashion Promotion class. The class is split into eight committees who are overseen by an executive committee. Each committee is held accountable to a specific aspect of the show’s creation and promotion, allowing this global phenomenon to occur. Design students spend an entire year creating their collections to be previewed on the MASS EXODUS stage – which in turn sets the stage for a formal introduction to the entire world of Fashion.
Mass Exodus curator 2015 is Jeanne Beker

EXCLUSIVE www.theresalongo.com INTERVIEW with DESIGNER AZALEA YANG
1. What inspired you to create these particular designs?
I was inspired by Chinese traditional garment “qipao”, at the first time when I brainstorming for my collection, and then since I wanted to make my clothes more unique so I added modern western silhouette into the designs.
2. Tell me about the rich fabrics you chose for these dresses?
The fabrics I used are mostly 100% silk satin and silk brocade, they are really soft and comfortable in touch. Interestingly, they were carefully selected and purchased from different countries around the world, the turquoise blue and gold silk satin are from the United States, the black satin is from South Korea and the red and gold brocade were imported from China. The appliqués I used on the dresses are designed and made by hand, the threads, shapes and colours are special chose and made for my collection so they are all one of a kind.
2. Describe your career in Fashion up to this moment...
