Win for College Student at New Zealand Fashion Week

August 30, 2016 at 10:02 AM

YMCA ‘Walk The Line’ is NZ Fashion Week’s nod to all upcoming designer talent who may rule the runways of Fashion Week in years to come.  The event gives the chance for 60 young designers, each showing one original and well-constructed garment, to have their garment seen on the catwalk. 

Year 12 Fashion and Textile Design Technology students, Larissa Mui and Lucy Scarborough, both submitted their original designs for selection and their garments were chosen as part of the line-up at New Zealand’s most prestigious Fashion Show. They had both worked hard to design and produce garments that are creative and beautiful to look at. 

Entered in the Open Section of Walk the Line, Lucy’s dress caught the eye of judges and won the section! The dress was hand marbled china silk that was ruffled and sewn in strips onto an A line slip dress. The result was fresh and flowing - reminiscent of coral and tropical waters; a beautiful garment showing creativity and excellent technique. 

Larissa’s outfit was white trousers with a sheer orange overlay that was topped off with crisscrossed bands over the hip. The halter top was hand stitched to give the effect of patchwork. 

We are very proud of their efforts! This is the second time a College student has been successful with past fashion student, Taylor McDonald being named the overall winner of the Walk the Line in 2014. 

Well done girls!
