Making it not only showcases outfits from the final year ranges of the top 2012 graduates from four Sydney based fashion design schools, it also marks 20 years of Student Fashion.

Making it highlights some of this extraordinary talent since 1993, including designers who established their own fashion labels, those that became lecturers and academics, and others that went on to design for major Australian and international fashion brands. Student Fashion ‘alumni’ include Timo Rissanen, Alana Clifton-Cunningham, Gabriel Lee, Toni Maticevski, Micaela Ezra, Lauren Vieyra, Prue Rainey and Dion Lee.

Come and see the best, budding and upcoming fashions from the Fashion Design Studio, TAFE NSW, Sydney Institute; Raffles College of Design and Commerce; University of Technology, Sydney; and the Whitehouse Institute of Design.
