Youth on the cutting edge
TALENTED FASHION STUDENTS PUT THE FUTURE ON SHOW
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.
