Wear­able Art a hit once again

Whitsunday Times - - 2014 WHITSUNDAY REEF FESTIVAL -

THE Wil­mar Sugar Wear­able Art Awards were once again a high­light of the an­nual Whit­sun­day Reef Fes­ti­val, show­cas­ing bril­liant de­signs while un­der­lin­ing an im­por­tant mes­sage.

More than 30 kids par­tic­i­pated in the event, with the re­gion’s bud­ding stu­dents putting their best foot for­ward on Satur­day af­ter­noon, mod­el­ling cos­tumes which em­pha­sised both re­cy­cling and the reef.

A myr­iad of orig­i­nal out­fits were dis­played, draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from onion bags, egg crates and even school ties.

Kloee Ken­dell took hon­ours in the Year 9 sec­tion for her stun­ning cos­tume cre­ation, closely fol­lowed by Gail Ur­bano and Latisha Pat­ullo.

Jas­min Tickle was anointed the out­stand­ing cre­ativ­ity award and Adrian Vowles won the in­no­va­tive work­man­ship ti­tle.

The Sweet as Sugar Wear­able Art Award was given to Jessie Toomey.

The tal­ented se­condary stu­dents will have a sec­ond op­por­tu­nity to pa­rade their wear­able art cre­ations when they head to Mackay this com­ing week­end for the Mackay Stu­dent Fes­ti­val of Fashion.

This pres­ti­gious an­nual event has been recog­nised by the Whitehouse In­sti­tute of De­sign, based in Sydney and Mel­bourne, and will spon­sor two schol­ar­ships. The win­ner of the Fashion Il­lus­tra­tion cat­e­gory will win a two-day city stu­dio schol­ar­ship in Bris­bane while the win­ner of the Out­stand­ing Cre­ativ­ity Award for Wear­able Art will win a five-day fashion stu­dio schol­ar­ship in Sydney.
