The National Graduate Showcase is arguably the most anticipated runway of the VAMFF program. Though, as supporting partner, we’re perhaps a little biased.
Lighting up the Royal Exhibition Building last night, the runway showcased the best fashion graduates from Australia's top tertiary institutions.
Presented by AMP Capital and proudly supported by yours truly, the runway showcased works from the following 12 finalists:
- Zhuxuan He (UTS)
- Natalie Vladimiroff (UTS)
- Tony Lee (UTS)
- Rochelle Bramich (Whitehouse)
- Meredith Bullen (UTS)
- Nehma Vitols (UTS)
- Victoria Bliss (RMIT)
- Talia Jimenez (UTS)
- Tara Miranne Bailey (UTS)
- Stephanie Henly (RMIT)
- William Thi (RMIT)
- Sarah Hope Schofield (RMIT)
The lineup offered something entirely different to the festival, with a focus on imagination, execution and technique.
Everything from hand-printed fabrics to knitting, hand-stitching and beading was showcased, with the graduates leaving quite the impression. So much so, they were met with a standing ovation at the conclusion of the show.
