SumSmart Garment Competition

This year we have partnered with the Cancer Council for the second year in a row, for their SunSmart garment competition.

As part of their coursework, Curtin University fashion students had to create a garment that offered good UV protection, that was also stylish and functional. They could then choose to enter their garment into a competition with the winning piece made up and sold in our shop.

The winner this year was Emma Watson, who created a gorgeous, loose fitting dress with frill. It drapes really nicely and, of course, offers high UV protection. Claire was on the judging panel, along with Curtin University staff and members from the Cancer Council, and all judges found it very difficult to choose, with the quality of entries being exceptional.

You can find the frock in store now. It is made from stretch cotton and sells at $89. It's also available through on online store over here.
