HETTANZ Fashion Awards 2019

Home Economics and Technology Teachers Association of New Zealand

14th October 2019

This year the HETTANZ Fashion Awards returned for their eighth year. The awards, proudly supported by Bernina were open to all students from member schools working in materials technology, fashion technology, clothing and textiles. The competition aims to encourage excellence in technical construction skills along with recognition for individuality and creativity. There were a range of categories available for Intermediate, Junior and Senior students. These awards celebrate the enormous talent that our students bring to the world of fashion and garment construction.

Entries were received from all over New Zealand and our judges were very impressed with the high standard of work produced. “At a time when climate change and fast fashion are hot topic issues, it is great to see students incorporating sustainable design decisions in their entries and showing a passion for, and an understanding of all that goes into the creation of such amazing outfits and textile outcomes”. Anna Hix from Bernina said, “It was so inspiring to see such innovative designs and high-quality sewing from all age levels at this year’s fashion awards.”

“The (HETTANZ) Fashion Awards are a key event in the fashion competition calendar each year. It is a wonderful opportunity for all students to demonstrate their skills and creativity.” says HETTANZ president, Sharyn Macpherson.
