Nunavut Arctic College hosts fashion show for parka-making course in Iqaluit

Free three-week course was funded by the Qikiqtani Inuit Association

Nunavut Arctic College hosted a Fashion Show and Tell on campus in Iqaluit Friday. The event marked the end of a free parka-making course, hosted with funding from Qikiqtani Inuit Association. The three-week evening course was part of the college’s continuing education programming and received applications from more than 100 Iqalummiut, who were then entered into a draw to select the final participants randomly. The 10 parkas made by students were in children’s sizes and were given to students with young children studying at the college, who were selected through a draw as well. The Fashion Show and Tell marked the end of Culture Week at the college. (Photo by Meral Jamal)
