Student Fashion Showcase Highlights Outstanding Young Talent
2 December 2015
School students from around New Zealand put their best fashionista feet forward for the HETTANZ Student Fashion Awards judged last week.
“The Home Economics and Technology Teachers Association of New Zealand (HETTANZ) Student Fashion Awards are a key event on the national fashion calendar and attract an amazing range of entries,” says HETTANZ President, Sarah Wirth.
“The 2015 HETTANZ fashion awards have once again attracted outstanding work by students from schools across Aotearoa New Zealand.
“The stunning work of all students shows that the garment and textiles construction programmes provide a valuable education experience and that learning and achievement is centred on high expectations and brilliant teaching,” says Sarah.
HETTANZ is proud to support Fashion and Textiles Technology teachers and their students through this annual competition.
“We are very grateful to Bernina for the sponsorship and the amazing prizes they have offered.”
The guest judges Nina Weaver from Massey University and Julie Veck from Bernina both commented on the high standard of the entries, with special mention of the workmanship and presentation.
The Awards, proudly supported by Bernina, were open to all school students working in materials technology, fashion technology, clothing and textiles. Schools were asked to manage a ‘selection’ process and send only the best two garments in each category for national judging. Over 70 entries were received across technical and creative categories for junior, senior students and the wearable arts category.
Congratulations to these successful students.
