I got the goosebumps watching the Melbourne Fashion Week, student collections runway last Friday night.
THE TALENT WAS NEXT LEVEL.
Most likely the best student fashion design work I’ve seen thus far!!!
The show featured students from Box Hill Institute, Holmesglen, Kangan Institute, RMIT and Whitehouse Institute of Design.
This runway was located underground at MCG’s carpark as the student collections were styled by Stuart Walford.
Massive congratulations to QIN WANG for winning the Student Designer Awards 2021!
Qin drew her inspiration from traditional paper-cutting techniques and handicraft and has created three-dimensional fabric vortexes that appear to whirl around the body. Other pieces in the collection feature gravity-defying layers, constructed using various elements of scaled cutwork as shown below.
Here are the students from each design school in Melbourne:
