Aspiring Category Winner 2020 Aldridge State High School, Queensland
“I have been competing since 2016 and continued to do so as it was a wonderful opportunity to develop my interest of fashion design as well as the journey that would result in producing a final product. Yet, I would always fall short of winning, but this gave me multiple chances to improve my technical sketching skills, thinking processes and decision making for specific ideas that match the criteria and my vision. This competition gave me the prospect to have fun, be creative and follow my true passion.”
Senior Category Winner 2020 St Monica's College Epping, Victoria
“I was very shocked when I received an email congratulating me. Reading the email over and over, I stared at my laptop for a solid five minutes before running out of my room and asking my family to double check if I had read it right. I could not believe that my design had won and was overjoyed. ”
Mid Category Winner 2020 St Hilda's Anglican School for Girls, Western Australia
“I enjoyed learning Photoshop as it enabled me to illustrate my design ideas as accurately as possible. It was interesting to explore all its different functions and how to use them effectively to generate a final product which I could be proud of. I also liked creating my final design sketch by producing multiple rapid concept sketches and brainstorming the different paths I could take with my garments. ”
Junior Category 2020 Kilreda College Mentone, Victoria
“My design is based on a whale shark, the top of the dress has different shades of blue which represents the ocean. The skirt is the pattern on the whale sharks back. The headpiece represents the shark's teeth and ocean waves.”
