On September 10, students from the college participated in the Australian Fashion Awards for Secondary Schools as part of Melbourne Fashion Week. Finalists and garments were selected by a panel at regional heats in August, with all finalists invited to parade their gowns at the Grand Hyatt ballroom.
One of two government schools in the competition, St Albans was called as first or second prize in five of six categories. “The results of our individual achievements were tallied at the end of the night and we were announced as this year’s Australian Champion Fashion School”, Arts Co-ordinator Nick D’Aglas said. “We were presented with the perpetual Carringbold Cup by the Melbourne Mayor”.
There were eight finalists, including year 12 student Rolland Andreica, who took out Australian Champion Smart Street school designer of the year.
