Katan­ning, Man­jimup and Albany sec­ondary stu­dents hit the cat­walk last month for the lo­cal heat of the Apex Aus­tralia Teenage Fash­ion and Arts Youth Fes­ti­val.

Stu­dents cre­ated and mod­elled their own out­fits in four cat­e­gories — Ca­sual wear, For­mal Wear, So­ci­ety and En­vi­ron­ment and Wear­able Art. The fes­ti­val pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents in­ter­ested in the fash­ion or de­sign in­dus­tries to demon­strate their skill and flair through friendly com­pe­ti­tion.

A cat­walk was set up at Katan­ning Se­nior High School, and stu­dents were judged in front of a crowd.

The Ca­sual and For­mal Wear cat­e­gories are judged on the con­struc­tion of the gar­ment as well as the use of colour and run­way pre­sen­ta­tion.

Tackly Naung, Year 10, from KSHS and Vanessa Nguyen, Year 12, from St Joseph’s Col­lege were win­ners of the Ca­sual Wear sec­tions.

Win­ners in the For­mal Wear sec­tion were Molly Puf­fler, Year 9, from Man­jimup Se­nior High School and Chloe Why, Year 9, from KSHS.

The So­ci­ety and En­vi­ron­ment cat­e­gory saw stu­dents por­tray a gar­ment de­pict­ing a civ­i­liza­tion, back­ground or sur­round­ing.

Mary-Jane Tus­sler, Year 9, from KSHS ven­tured into the Vic­to­rian era of col­lec­tions and con­structed a ter­rar­ium from re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als. The Wear­able Art sec­tion in­cluded Mada­line Madi­gan from St Joseph’s Col­lege, who chose WA’s ban of sin­gle-use plas­tic bags as her in­spi­ra­tion.

Char­lene Tink, Year 11, from MSHS, also im­pressed in the Wear­able Art cat­e­gory with a Ja­panese in­spired gown. Win­ners from the Katan­ning heat head to the State fi­nal on Satur­day, Septem­ber 15.

Win­ners show off their cre­ations at the Katan­ning heat of the Apex Aus­tralia Teenage Fash­ion and Arts Youth Fes­ti­val.
