A SHIRT made from a recycled karate uniform and a skirt made from trendy fermented drink kombucha.

That was the original design that won for young Mandurah design student Eleanor Litterick a coveted Future Runway award in the recent Telstra Perth Fashion Festival.

Litterick, a student in the Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Technology at South Metropolitan Tafe, was overall winner in the eco design category.

South Metropolitan students won four out of the five categories.

Litterick’s work was also in Perth: A Guide for the Curious, in Claremont Quarter, another Telstra Perth Fashion Festival Event.

Future Runway is an event in which student designers push the envelope while developing their own style and an evening that never fails to display an abundance of talent – from the conservative to the outrageous.
