Study in style – for free

17 December 2012

Study in style – for free

As many school-leavers look for summer work to fund tertiary study, one aspiring first-year fashion designer could be studying fee-free in 2013.

The Tempo Fashion Design Scholarship valued at $5000, offers one student enrolled in Wintec’s Diploma in Fashion Design and Practice the opportunity to have their course fees fully funded for the first year of study.

Students who apply to enrol in the programme will be automatically considered for the scholarship. Applicants will then be judged on academic merit, personal character, commitment and potential to succeed in the fashion industry by industry experts and Wintec’s Fashion Designers in Residence, NYNE.

The Diploma in Fashion Design and Practice course offers knowledge in design, production and distribution as well as fashion production, culture, history, industry, retailing, distribution materials and basic skills in fashion design technology.

At the end of each year, fashion students showcase their work in a professional runway event.

The course begins in mid-February at Wintec’s City campus.

ENDS.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
