This last week Laguna College of Art + Design opened LCAD + Thalia + VANS, an aciton sports design exhibition with VANS and Thalia. All of the designs and products in the exhibition are the results of in-class projects with LCAD’S innovative Design + Digital Media Action Sports BFA program. LCAD is the first college in the world to offer a degree in Action Sports Design. The doubly-accredited BFA program, which began in 2008, has attracted collaborations and partnerships with some of the world’s top action sports brands like NIKE, Hurley AND VANS.
Laguna Beach’s Beautiful mountains, canyons and coastal waters are surrounded by the Action Sports Industry. LCAD students benefit from studying with the best instructors and from forging relationships with industry partners. All of the fashions in this exhibition are available at Thalia Surf Shop—both in their physical storefront located at 915 South Coast Highway in Laguna Beach, and on their online store at www.thaliaurf.com. Look for the Thalia + LCAD label.
10% OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THE SALES OF THE THAILA + LCAD PRODUCTS GOES TO LCAD’S INNOVATIVE ACTION SPORTS DESIGN PROGRAM.
