Three Kangan Institute fashion students have been selected to showcase their designs at 2013 Victorian Training Awards Ceremony to be held on Friday 6th September. The talented students Emily Turner, Brittney Hunt and Gulalai Alidad, who will be providing a total of six garments, were chosen in light of the Institute's fashion industry collaboration win at the 2012 Victorian Training Awards. "I approached Kangan Institute based on their collaborative win last year with the Council of Textile and Fashion Industries of Australia (TFIA) as I believed that students were creating some fabulous work which needed to be showcased," said Anne Pereira, senior communications adviser at the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. Odile Higgins, manager of Kangan Institue's Centre for Fashion and Creative Industries, expressed her delight for the selected students. "Kangan Institute has a strong reputation for producing students with high quality couture skills as demonstrated by Emily, Gulalai and Brittney," she said. "We are thrilled for our students who worked extremely hard to achieve the outstanding garments produced for the show." This year's ceremony, titled 'Be a star in training', will also highlight the work of other students across the state with fashion show garments, event décor, filming, video presentation and music all provided by Victorian VET students. The ceremony will be held at Palladium at Crown Melbourne where Kangan Institute is also competing as a finalist within the VET Client Service/Support Excellence Award and Victorian Industry Collaboration Award categories.
