Congratulations Bridget Dalley!

Mrs R. Flanagan, Textiles Design Teacher —


Judging for the HETTANZ (Home Economics and Technology Teachers' Association of New Zealand) Fashion Awards, proudly supported by Bernina, took place on Wednesday 21 October. The competition is open to all students from member schools working in materials technology, fashion technology or textiles, and aims to encourage excellence in technical construction skills, along with recognition for individuality and creativity.

Entries were received from schools across Aotearoa New Zealand, and once again the judges were blown away with the high standard of work produced.

This year a new senior category focused on sustainable design. Guest judge Sue Prescott (Senior Lecturer / Programme Leader Fashion at Massey University) said “It is inspiring to see such a high level of creativity and problem solving in the work from these talented school students and impressive to see school students using such innovative and sustainable methods to realise their creative fashion ideas”.

Bridget Dalley was awarded 1st place in the Senior Sustainable Design section.
