Catwalk Beckons For Bright Young Things

Pumpkins, gladiators and landscapes are among the inspirations for this year’s Whanganui UCOL’s School of Fashion Parade and Show next week.

An intriguing and varied range of collections will grace the catwalk during Bright Young Things, the annual show featuring work by all of the fashion students.

Aimee Maulder’s collection Pumpkinesque celebrates the undiscovered and true beauty of pumpkins. “Their unique colouring and texture has been my entire inspiration,” she says. “I have used classic pieces and put a unique twist from the pumpkin to create an innovative and creatively fun collection.”

Aimee is one of 15 graduating Bachelor of Fashion students who will each show a five piece collection reflecting their individual creative exploration and vision.
Graduate Diploma in Fashion student Li Tang will present a 3 piece collection called The South of Iridescent Clouds. “It portrays the beautiful landscape and our endearment to the land of YunNan province in China,” says Li.

Head of School of Fashion Amanda Rayner says, “These final collections are a culmination of many months, in some cases years, of hard work and dedication.”

Certificate of Fashion students will present their interpretation of the theme Street.
Year One Bachelor of Fashion students will present their take on The Dress; and Cult Couture, Manawatu Knitting Mills and Whose Life is it Anyway? will showcase the work of the Year Two students.

The popular annual event is well received by the community and is a highlight of Whanganui UCOL’s three week long arts celebration Artrageous.

Bright Young Things will be held in the Jubilee Stadium on Friday 16 November. Amanda expects a lively audience in the large venue. “It is a wonderfully supportive environment for the students to publicly reveal their creative talent.”

When: 7.00pm Friday 16 November.
Where: Jubilee Stadium, London Street, Whanganui.
Tickets: $25 each General Admission. Tickets are available from Whanganui UCOL Information Centre.
