Self Made... Mad Hatter's Garden Party, Belconnen Arts Centre

Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) first year fashion students were invited to parade their race day wear at the new Belconnen Arts Centre on Melbourne Cup Day, the majority of the dresses were made and modelled by the designers themselves, enjoy:

[note: suit not made by student]

Like mum like daughter, this red fascinator won hat of the day!

This pirate patterned dress was made by the gentleman on the right and is reversible, the other side featuring a white background with animated jungle animals.

[note: purchased dress with vintage fascinator]

[note: dress not made by student, but happy attitude all her own - my favourite model of the day!]

One of the most creative uses of materials is the blue ribbon pictured above, made from packing tape!

The shoes! The FASCINATOR!!!
