The Canadian Asian International Students’ Association (CAISA) is delighted to present its 19th annual fashion show – COMME des GARCONS, on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at Centennial Hall.

Drawing a crowd of over 1,500 attendees, CAISA Fashion Show is one of the largest student-run charity fashion shows in Ontario. COMME des GARCONS will be pushing creative boundaries with a number of unique acts, on-stage illusions in the ‘House of Magic’, and a roster of independent designers who will debut their custom collections on the runway.

On Friday, October 21st the Metropolitan Museum of Art revealed that next year’s gala will be celebrating the one and only Rei Kawakubo, founder of Comme des Garçons. This marks an important event in history for the gala as it is the first time a living designer will be the sole focus of the exhibit since Yves Saint Laurent in 1983.

With over $230,000 donated to our charity, CAISA Fashion Show is thrilled to continue its partnership with Children’s Health Foundation for the eleventh year.

This year, the funds will support Stem Cell Research at Children’s Health Research Institute, London Health Sciences Centre.
