Congratulations! Forty two graduates have accomplished diploma and certificate education at LaSalle College Surabaya.
This also signified the most graduates in the ten years of LaSalle College Surabaya’s existence. Four best graduates were chosen: Most Contributive Graduate was Talitha Fairuz, position for Best Portfolio was secured by Inas Fatina, Favorite Graduate by Dinda Gadis Prakasiwi, and the spot for Best Graduate was Citra Yohana’s.
This year’s Graduation Show was also the first graduation for the graduates of Artistic Make Up Program, with eight successful graduates that will surely adorn LaSalle College Surabaya with distinctive colors. It was evident from the Special performances from those graduates, each having their own theme, ranging from Self beauty make up, bridal, traditional make up, Drag Queen, Body Painting, to character Make up.
QUINTESSENCE was chosen as the big idea underlying Graduation Show 2015. Quintessence represents five essential elements of life, water, fire, earth, metal, dan wood. Those five reflect the characteristics of students at LaSalle College Surabaya, where each needs to adapt to their environment, completing every task and responsibility. Hence, they need to have a strong mental trait and creativity at the highest level to support them in their future life. Graduation Show 2015 had a line-up full of activities like Multimedia Fashion Show, photography and graduates’ masterpiece exhibition, make up performance and fashion bazaar. Every program showcased their students’ work at their booth. Every one from each program took part in this big event, as this can be a way to promote the product.
For instance, Fashion Business showcased handmade shoes, bags, and clothes that become trend among the youth. Photography featured the students’ best shots, Fashion Design displayed portfolio and photo-shoots. Digital Media Design displayed pop up 3D design and portfolio, while Artistic make up decorated their booth with portfolio of each student, and Interior Design exhibited creative mock-ups from students.
Quintessence 2015 wouldn’t be any success due to the participation of students, teachers, or staff alone. Esteemed and supportive parents also play a major role in this event by preparing their son or daughter for this once in a lifetime event. Gratitude also goes to all fashion people in Surabaya, invitees, and performers at Quintessence 2015. We couldn’t have done this either without the assistance of sponsors and media partners. Looking forward to another partnership in the future.
