Talent and imagination: Examples
of the different shapes and ways
students are manipulating KIWI
BLUE Eco-twist plastic bottles to
make their garments -- weaving,
cutting, ironing, sewing, spraying
and heating plastic.
Any potential fashion designers
out there in North Canterbury?
If there are, get in touch with
the Design & Arts College in
The fashion designers of our
future are to stage a sustainable
fashion show at the Ellerslie
International Flower Show this
year, marking the launch of a new
lightweight water bottle
introduced by KIWI BLUE Eco-twist.
Students of the Design & Arts
College of New Zealand have been
given the unusual task of
incorporating the new lightweight
bottles into their garment designs,
along with other sustainable
materials, to be featured in the
KIWI BLUE Eco-twist Sustainable
Fashion Show. The students'
entries must follow the creative
brief, ''Tell us why 25% Less Is
Best'', as the initiative celebrates
25 per cent less plastic that goes
into manufacturing the recyclable
KIWI BLUE Eco-twist range, a first
for the New Zealand market.
A total of 11 fashion and design
students will see their garments
modelled down the catwalk on
each of the five show days, while
a static exhibition will showcase
the designs in-between shows for
the tens of thousands of event
attendees who will also get to cast
a vote for their favourite, most
''We really appreciate the
opportunity of being involved
with the KIWI BLUE Eco-twist
Sustainable Fashion Show,'' says
Donna Mahuta, head of Fashion
Design at D&A.
''The students are really excited
about working on such a unique
brief, it's a great learning
opportunity and allows them to
push the boundaries of their
KIWI BLUE Eco-twist Sustainable
Fashion Show garments will be
judged, with winners announced
at a ceremony on Saturday, March
9, where second and first runners-
up, people's choice and the
supreme winner will be awarded.
The show takes place from
March 6 to 10 at Hagley Park, and
standard adult tickets are available
for $35 from
Exciting courses on offer
Attractive design: An example of the
work undertaken by a ''Mosaic'' student
at the Adult and Community Education
programme at Rangiora High School.
Adult and Community Education (ACE)
has been embraced by Rangiora High
School for more than 100 years. Until
recently ACE programmes were
generously subsidised. But despite the
withdrawal of almost all government
funding the Rangiora High School
board continues as a Community
Learning Centre and gives generously
of its resources.
The aim of the programme is to offer
quality learning experiences to
empower and enable individuals to
build self esteem and develop creative
skills and knowledge, although not all
courses can run every term.
Last term a new course aimed at
building self esteem and confidence for
women, called Personal Style and
Fashion, was extremely well received.
This term Painting for Beginners has
attracted such a big response that it is
now offered twice weekly. Courses
which have had a loyal following for a
number of years include Yoga, Pilates,
Woodwork, and Floral Design.
While most courses run on
weeknights during term time, there are
weekend workshops for those who are
not free during the week. This term
Upholstery For Beginners, an extremely
popular course for those wanting to
rejuvenate or recreate a piece of
furniture is offered, and a new course
Woodwork for Beginners is aimed at
those who would like to master the
Other new courses include Mosaics
for Beginners and French and Spanish
courses are aimed primarily at
travellers. An exciting cooking
programme is on the cards for next
term with an international chef who
will share both the food and culture of
countries in which he has worked.
Visit the school's website
rangiorahigh.school.co.nz or call the
programme co-ordinator Sue
Solomons or liaison assistant Sally
McGill at the school on 311 8888.
