Fairholme College is embracing all things stylish with its annual Cotton Australia Fairholme Fashion Week as a prelude to its spring fair. The theme of this year’s event is Home Grown and is focussed on supporting local designers, local industry and the connection between cotton farms and the fashion industry. The highlight is the Spring Fair Fashion Parade — a chance for budding designers from south-west Queensland to showcase their skills and style. The designs will be judged by acclaimed Queensland designers Julie Tengdahl from the label Tengdahl (designs pictured) and Pia Du Prudal from the label Pia Du Prudal. Julie is a well renowned fashion designer who also supports sustainable fashion, and Pia is a huge supporter of the cotton industry and has designed outfits for Dame Quentin Bryce. Original, spring-inspired cotton creations are welcomed for submission, with a category open to the public also. The parade will include designs from Pia Du Prudal, Tengdahl, Rowen Couture and Alex Kennedy.
