Passion for fashion


Trendy teens and chic children will show off a range of cultural and contemporary clothing at the Shepparton Ethnic Council’s Fashion Show.

The fashion show is now in its third year and started as a way of encouraging young people to engage with others in a fun and social environment.

Shepparton Ethnic Council community development officer Thom Thom said they were aware a lot of people were interested in fashion whether they were male or female, so they thought showcasing this would be a great way to bring people together.

In the past it was really successful

And this year we’re calling on anyone to be part of it.

Mr Thom said there would be a category for children aged two to 12 and a second category for teenagers aged 13 to 21.

Children and teens can then enter into either traditional dress or contemporary dress.

Mr Thom said those who entered into the traditional dress area would have to explain the cultural significance of their clothes.

A judging panel, including guest judge Miss Australia International Alice Su, will select the best dressed children and teens out of all the categories.

Mr Thom said they hoped to expand the event next year if it was successful again.

The Shepparton Ethnic Council Fashion Show will be held at St Paul’s African House, 54 Poplar Ave, Shepparton, on Saturday, July 8, from 3pm to 5pm.

To enter the show, phone Sam Atukorala at the Shepparton Ethnic Council on 58312395.

If you would like to attend the event as a spectator you are welcome to come along on the day.
