Curtin University students and alumni will star at this month’s Perth Fashion Festival, showcasing the talent, creativity and “cutting edge” designs being created in the University’s Fashion HUB.
Ms Anne Farren, Head of Fashion, explained 2013 marked 10 years since the introduction of fashion studies at Curtin.
“Over the past 10 years we’ve seen many changes in fashion and technologies that can be applied to garment making and a wonderful amount of creativity resulting in bespoke garments from our students,” Ms Farren said.
“The diverse collections of past alumni, recent graduates and current students will all be on show at this year’s Perth Fashion Festival.
“In the Student Runway event on 14 September, collections range from costume to contemporary fashion, including eco-design and eveningwear. This year 10 Curtin students will feature, presenting a total of 16 ‘looks’.
“Students participating in the Western Australia – Hyogo Banshu Fashion Textile Program will also each present a mini-collection of their bespoke garments, created with or inspired by Japanese textiles at a special show on Friday 13 September.”
The Curtin University 10-Year Retrospective event will take place on Sunday 15 September.
“This exciting event will profile the collections of fashion alumni and feature emerging WA designers currently studying at Curtin,” Ms Farren said.
