UCOL Fashion and Beauty

UCOL Fashion and Beauty students will have their time in the spotlight on Wednesday night.

The Dream Believe Achieve Parade and Show is the culmination of 18 weeks intensive study for the 10 Certificate in Fashion and Beauty (Level 1) students. It is their chance to bring all the components of their fashion and beauty modules together into one amazing show.

Among other fashionable highlights, the students will model the garments they have designed themselves and made from fabrics from Arthur Toye Fabrics.

They will also show an outfit they each assembled from one visit to the Hospice Shop.

Fashion Lecturer and Show organizer Sheran Merritt says, “The students are looking forward to showcasing their creations and what they have achieved this semester.”

“They have worked incredibly hard to put the show together,” she says. “You will be entertained and, I assure you will be amazed at the high standard of work.”

There will be plenty of surprises on the catwalk as the UCOL ‘Studs’ model menswear from Factorie. The entries in the Decorate a Bra contest get their first public appearance.

UCOL staff member Faryn Te Atatu will show her musical talents with performances during the evening.

The Parade and Show is supported by local fashion outlets Factorie, Cotton On, the Sugar Plum Fairy Shop, Arthur Toye Fabrics and Arohanui Hospice Shop. All proceeds from the gold coin entry fee will go to the Arohanui Hospice.

When: 7.30pm on Wednesday 7 November 2012.

Where: UCOL Atrium, Princess Street entrance.
