Illume was the fourth Central TAFE Fashion and Textile Graduation Parade I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. It was the first fashion-related project I ever worked on back in 2009 when my cousin Melissa was one of the graduate designers, and I’ve been back every year since. Thanks to Anna Kotai and the team for all their hard work, and congratulations to all of the designers. I love working alongside other young, passionate, creative people – it’s always an inspiring experience.
Here’s a quick preview of some backstage and runway pictures. The full album will be up later in the week on my Facebook page.
Designers: Rachel Nicholaidis, Ruby Glendining, Emma Credaro, Tiana Continibali, Lindy Maiorana, Joshua Lau, Carmen Familton, Courtney McConnell, Danielle Bettridge, Amanda Tan, Jasmine Turner, Laura Nelson, Ebony Vukelic, Catherine Somerford, Ellie Mackay, Samantha Koval.
