Claudia dares to be different and wins

Written on the 15 November 2016

A passion for fashion recently earned Scotch College student Claudia Dare first prize in the Apex Australia Teenage Fashion and Youth Arts Festival.

The Year 9 student, who came second in the SA final, was inspired by UK fashion designer Vivienne Westwood as well as punk and grunge styles.

"Most formal wear garments are flowing and elegant, I wanted to go against this but make something feminine and unique,'' she said.

"The dress has layers of four different fabrics, an underskirt with structural hoops, six layers of black tulle, one layer of black fabric and a top layer of red tartan.''

Claudia started sewing at the age of 12 to self learn using a book her grandmother gave her and is also doing Fashion Design as a subject.

The AATFA awards require students to design and manufacture their own garments and are judged by professional judges.
