If you didn’t know this was a student designer showcase it would’ve been easy to believe that all of the designers were established artists making yet another mark on the designer wold stage.
The star of the show was Ruby Mariani who was recently featured on Style Voyeur (see three posts previous) for her collection Seduisant et Repousant. The amount of work that has gone into each and every one of her pieces is beyond measure and not surprisingly Mariani won the Attitude Emerging Talent Award of the night. This award provides Mariani with a $1,000 advertisement in Attitude Magazine, ‘aextensive’ coverage in Attitude and a Brother Industrial sewing machine worth $2,000.
If Ruby Mariani and all of the other Curtin University graduating Fashion & Textile Design students are not major players in the fashion world within the next few years, it will truely then be an injustice!
There was a real air of danger and mystery which filled the grounds and this image is the perfect representation of the vibe of the night.
