Fashion Design Studio at East Sydney TAFE shows off the talents of their emerging designers at a stunning fashion parade in Sydney’s Strand Arcade
Ballets Russes is synonymous with style and originality having been generally regarded as the greatest ballet company of the 20th century.
Costumes by Ballets Russes Russian designer Leon Bakst and hand detailing of the Cultures from the Middle East or Asia was the 2011 brief for students from Sydney’s elite Fashion Design Studio. The annual fashion awards are designed to give fashion students the opportunity to show off their talent featuring their evening gowns in a parade held in Sydney’s Strand Arcade.
Anna Langdon took out first place with sticking black number reminiscent of a ‘My Fair Lady’ silhouette. Carlie Waterman’s stunningly elegant gown came in second (MiSociety had a closed inspection of Carlie’s gown and it really was spectacular.
Fashion Design Studio, under the direction of school head Nicholas Huxley, is well known for its high-profile alumni so the Stage3 students from the school should not have been be short of motivation.
Models paraded the students collective works made up of 28 stunning evening gowns proving how well they had risen to the challenge earning much genuine admiration and applause from three hundred invited guests at the Parade and Cocktail Party.
The students families and supporters had their pre ‘Catwalk’ nerves settled by sponsor Vodka O’s cocktails and tasty canapés provided by TAFE.
MiSociety could not help but note following the catwalk show some very drained looking parents lugging home their offspring’s precious gowns as their budding designers headed out to party.
