My name is Allycia Coolidge. I am a recent
graduate of Ryerson University’s Fashion
Design program. Throughout this program,
I have studied industrial methods of garment construction as well as the historical,
sociological, and business side of the fashion
industry. In my two last years at Ryerson I focused
on the costume side of fashion through various wardrobe classes and an internship with Canada's National Ballet School. In my final year, I created a thesis collection entitled La Belle et La Forte. This is a fashion ballet costume collection that explores the beauty and strength behind the ballerina. These studies have prepared me as I enter the next step of my career.
