South Metropolitan TAFE is thrilled to announce that 13 fashion students have been chosen as finalists in Telstra Perth Fashion Festival’s Future Runway.
The event held on 23 September at the Perth Concert Hall brings together the most promising designers from WA’s key fashion institutions and universities.
Winners will be announced on the night, with SM TAFE students having 16 entries in all five categories: Ready-to-wear Womenswear, Ready-to-wear Menswear, Evening Wear, Eco Design and Costume.
SM TAFE Portfolio Manager Andrea Quintal said that it was fantastic to see the students work from inception to completion, and that the group were extremely talented.
“A lot of these students have aspirations to work locally and overseas for high end fashion labels and many want to start their own brands, so this is great publicity for them,” she said.
“We aim to equip our students with a balance of creative skills and business approaches to ensure they are job-ready when they leave us.”
SM TAFE offers a Certificate lV, Diploma and Advanced Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Technology and an Associate Degree of Fashion Business.
Applications are now open to study in first semester 2017. Visit our Fashion Courses page or call 1800 001 001.
