The Form IV Visual Arts girls worked collaboratively to create a fantasy dance dress entirely out of mixed types of paper. This was for a competition for the launch of the Fashion Academy Network (FAN), a fashion college located at the Design District building in Rosebank. The dresses were judged by a panel of judges and were displayed at a special cocktail evening on 19 September.
Justine Lotter, Jemima Morgan and Jessica Parkin won first prize for their lovely floral paper dress. Herbert Evans sponsored the wonderful prize of art materials to the value of R20 000 for St Mary’s first prize and for our participation in this project. Well done, girls!
