Texstyle - NSW 2010 HSC Students Display

TEXSTYLE is the display of some of the outstanding Major Textile Projects done in Textile & Design by students from across NSW as part of the Higher School Certificate.

Textiles & Design is a high school elective that challenges students to create a major project plus a progress portfolio.  The result is a completely original piece of self-expression, as you will see by my photos, taken at last week's Canberra Craft & Quilt Fair. 
They are all on display again this week at the Craft and Sewing Show at Newcastle.  I was overwhelmed by the level of imagination and sewing skills and admired the work involved with their supporting documentation in their portfolios displayed underneath each magnificent creation.
Students electing Textile & Design for their HSC have 50% of their final mark allocated for their major project and 50% in an exam.  Focus areas were under the choices of "Apparel, Costume, Textile Art, Furnishings or Non-Apparel".
Enjoy the following photos, these are are future!

The amazing pink flower is the skirt to accompany the bodice shown above it.

I was drawn by the pleating down the side of this bodice, naturally, because of the Pleat Makers we manufacture.
Here is another with pleating and shirring interest.

Sorry I can't show all of the amazing display, but here are a few more inspiring outfits.  Study the neckline interest in this snazzy outfit!

Don't forget you may view all of these at each show during 2011.  Make sure you see them at this week's Craft and Sewing Show at Newcastle Entertainment Centre, Broadmeadows this week.
18th - 21st August 10.00am to 4.30pm daily
Visit us on Stand F10
I have FOUR FREE Tickets to give away.  First 4 customers to place an order to be collected at the Show and you may collect your FREE Ticket at the door once I confirm you are a WINNER.
