Kangan Institute is introducing the next generation of Australian fashion designers through a unique fashion parade in the heart of Melbourne city’s creative precinct, Richmond. Aptly titled ‘Melbourne Edge’, the runway will showcase fashion and millinery collections in a range of styles from avant-garde and little black dresses, through to Red Cross upcycled designs.
Highlights will include unique graduate collections and debut ranges, and work from student designer Jessica Lawrence, who recently won the 2016 Fashion Awards Australia’s New and Emerging Designer Award.
The event will also feature installations from visual merchandising students, hair and makeup from Kangan’s beauty students, and food and entertainment from hospitality and music students.
“Our industry-focused program and state of the art training environment has allowed our student designers to experiment with the latest practices, technology and trends, and really push the boundaries of fashion design. Technical expertise, innovation and confidence will shine through in our students’ collections,” said Kangan Institute’s creative industries manager Katrina Jojkity.
As one of Melbourne’s leading fashion schools, Kangan Institute featured prominently in top fashion events this year, including the 2016 Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. Students were part of the sell-out High Fashion, High Tea millinery parade, Ecothreads sustainable fashion show, as well as the Emerging Collective Runway.
