#VALT2016 NIGHT 2 ~ Theme: VOLUME
To hear, to be deafened, or to play with enormity or slightness.
MC: Harrison Oswald
Harrison Oswald's first crush was Grace Jones, and he has been a slave to fashion ever since. After a brief stint as a Vancouver crust punk, Harrison joined the Canadian Armed Forces and learned the finer points of being cold, firearms maintenance, and tailoring. After his service, Harrison started working and volunteering in the alternative scene as a fire performer, club doorman, prop maker, costume maker and all round unicorn. In 2011, Harrison entered university, where he has successfully dropped out of both his fine art and science degree programs in favor of working in the film industry. He has been behind the scenes of many fashion shows in Vancouver, volunteered at #VALT2015 and has a passion for the looks our local designers and artists create every year. Harrison is loud, boisterous, and lives to make people smile!
