[Illume] Central TAFE's Fashion & Textile Graduate Parade 2012

16 fashion & textile design students graduating from the Central Institute of Technology presented their 6 piece collection in the grand Winthrop Hall at the University of Western Australia. The 500 strong crowd were treated to an inspiring show in which the students showed off their talent for design and innovative textiles!

As a past student myself it was lovely to see what the students had been up to! I was particularly impressed with the textiles the students produced. The course is well-renowned for its focus on textile techniques and design and this year the students even had a chance to develop their own digital prints. The exhibition after the parade allowed guests to view the beautiful textiles and garments up close and to fully appreciate the attention to detail and craftsmanship. It also gave guests the chance to meet the talented designers behind the work.

A huge CONGRATULATIONS to all the staff and students at Central TAFE on an amazing and inspiring show!
