Young de­sign­ers use tech­nol­ogy to push fash­ion bound­aries.

FU­TURE Run­way pushed the bound­aries of style in its stu­dent show­case with a new cat­e­gory in­volv­ing wear­able tech­nol­ogy.

South Metro Tafe’s Re­becca Van­de­peer won this cat­e­gory for the 3D printed items to min­imise waste and add in­ter­est.

The Run­way’s win­ners in­cluded four stu­dents from South Metro Tafe and two from Curtin Uni­ver­sity.

The most tal­ented stu­dents from WA’s top fash­ion in­sti­tu­tions pre­sented their de­signs on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 14 at Fash­ion Para­mount, Crown Pyra­mid.

An ex­hi­bi­tion of works was held at the Vic­to­ria Park Cen­tre of the Arts at 125 Kent Street, East Vic­to­ria Park from Oc­to­ber 2 to 7.

Fes­ti­val di­rec­tor Mariella Har­veyHan­ra­han said Fu­ture Run­ways con­tin­ued to be a chan­nel for cre­ative ex­pres­sion and fos­tered peo­ple who would be­come the great de­sign­ers of to­mor­row.

“What they have pro­duced is in­cred­i­ble, from a sus­tain­able leather-like fab­ric made with kom­bucha to a jacket with an in-built GPS and ad­vances in smart ac­tive wear.

The six cat­e­gories also in­cluded ready-to-wear menswear and wom­enswear, evening, cos­tume and eco de­sign.


Ready To Wear Wom­enswear.

Eco de­sign: Lace and land­scape.

Cos­tume: in­cor­po­rat­ing a spi­ral stair­case.
