2004 Smales WA Fashion Design Awards

Yep, that's where we headed last night. Miky had entered the competition in the student section in three categories - ready to wear, evening wear and corporate wear. The night started off well at our table when Catherine Foote, a designer who runs Muze, won the Swimwear Design award.

There were four main judges and Annalise Brackensiek was one of them. Annalise sat two tables away from us, and although easy on the eye, she obviously doesn't have a good eye for fashion.

Miky didn't end up winning anything and she most certainly should have won at least second place in the corporate wear category. Her designs in ready to wear and evening wear looked fabulous too. It was quite disheartening but she'll soldier on.

Most of the judging for the student divisions was ok but in the established designer sections there was some real crap that won. Garbage, some of it.

Anyway, I'll post some photos of the night sometime soon.
