VET Fashion progress

Students from around the area come over to Sandringham College on Wednesday afternoons to participate in a range of Vocational Education and Training courses, including VET Fashion. We have students from Elwood, OLSH, Mentone Girls, Kilvington and more, as well as our own students.

Currently our second year students are completing their Fashion range of garments which range from traditional evening wear, boho style designs, Victoria’s Secret style garments, and everything in between.

Our first years are finishing their modified t-shirt, and developing their skirt designs. This has given them skills in a range of machine uses, with both stretch and woven fabrics.

The Year in Review

This has once again been a huge year in Textiles and Fashion across all 3 campuses of the College. We hope you have been keeping up with our amazing students on both the Textiles and the College blog spaces.
This year was the first time the Alliance Classes have been run between Mentone Girls Secondary College and ourselves with Unit 1 and 2 Product Design and Technology students meeting up at the Beaumaris Campus.
Year 12 VCE and VET Applied Fashion 1st and 2nd years were at the Senior campus and 7 – 9 at Bluff Rd and Beaui.
Our VCE students once again produced quality garments and outstanding folios, and are now waiting for the final tally of the SAT, SACs and Exam with their scores coming out next week. One of the gowns was even featured in a bridal photo shoot at the Exhibition gardens!!
VET students created designer jackets, pjs, skirts and 50s inspired dresses.
The junior levels created cushions, boxers shorts, and iPad covers/pencil cases, pj sets and much more!
We certainly have a talented bunch here and look forward to you joining our online journey in 2015!

It has been a hectic 12 months, moving rooms, setting up our alliance with Mentone Girls High at the Beaumaris campus, and keeping on with our creative designs.
This semester is nearly done, with a flurry of work to finish folios and design work. Unit 3-4 students are developing their designs for clients, 1st year VET Applied Fashion students are finishing off their t-shirts and 2nd year Applied Fashion students are developing toiles for their fashion range.

Fashion Designers

My head is going to explode I have so many ideas going on…. Today saw the introduction to the Fashion Designer assignment for the year 11s… and I have had some great ideas for next year’s unit 1 and 2

Unit 1 – redesigning a product… could be a man’s suit jacket given a new lease on life, or a la project runway style, dump a bunch of recycled clothing and let them design a new garment suitable for them to wear.
The designers sweat bullets as their creations take the catwalk. :: Full Runway Show :: The Runway :: Project Runway Australia :: Arena
I could use the Garment bag as an intro – getting to know the basics and seeing where everyone is at, showing safe use of machines and equipment

Unit 2 – Begin with getting into teams, researching a designer, and then creating a fashion range which reflects the style of the designer.
