Handbury Award and Scholarship at the Australasian Young Designer Wool Awards in Hamilton on Sunday.

 

 

 

Shocked and honoured to receive the award, Ms Saunders said it was the first time she had worked with wool in her designs. She said when she considered entering the Sheepvention competition, she did not realise what she could do with wool when creating garments. "When I first heard about us entering the wool award, I thought knitwear for some reason as I didn’t know you could get wool suiting as beautiful, and have such an amazing drape as it does," she said.Ms Saunders is a second year student at the Gordon Institute of TAFE in Geelong and dreams to have her own label and be a successful designer in the future.A two-week residential course in fashion design at the Istituto Marangoni in Milan, one of Europe’s most famous fashion schools, will certainly help Ms Saunders’ dreams become a reality.  The prize is worth $10,500. Ms Saunders described her winning garment as meraki, which meant to do with the soul and creativity and putting something of yourself into your work."The silhouette is 1960s inspired, I wanted to ramp it up and make it a bit more contemporary … it is made from 100 per cent wool suiting from Davisha in the city," she said."The oversized jacket has double folded revere and bucket style pockets."The design took Ms Saunders about two months to complete."I want to make beautiful clothes for women to wear that people feel happy in, style is an individual thing and it is a privilege to have people like and enjoy your clothing," she said.Judges Wendy Voon and Robyn Black said it was an honour and pleasure to judge the inspiring pieces."We were both impressed with the high standard of work entered," Ms Voon said.Event compere ACE Radio’s Rowly Patterson said it was an amazing show with "wonderful and imaginative garments"."It gives woolgrowers great optimism, wool is a fabulous fibre and I am very proud to be involved in this," Mr Patterson said.

Students from Portland Secondary College, Heywood and District Secondary College and Bayview College faced off on Friday in an interschool girls football clash on Hanlon Park.

The pictures show Nevadah Ooi-Cleary keeps her eye on the ball as she kicks long.

 

 The picture shows Jaymie Falconer props herself to gather the loose ball as the pack closes in. There was no holding back in the senior girls clash between Portland Secondary College and Bayview College, with every possession earned the hard way.
