AATFA

 

The Apex Australia Teenage Fashion Awards (AATFA) has been an annual event for Apex Australia over the past 20 years. In conjunction with secondary schools throughout Australia, Apex provides high school students with the opportunity to design, manufacture and model their own fashion garments.

The Apex Australia Teenage Fashion Awards is a unique opportunity for students interested in the fashion or design industries to demonstrate their skill and flair through a friendly competition. The Awards are an extraordinary co-curricular activity, which offers students the opportunity and encouragement to explore their creativity in the fields of fashion, design and textiles.

The competition comprises of four key categories:

  • Casual Wear, incorporating Sports, Beach and Day Wear
  • Evening Wear, incorporating After 5 and Evening Wear
  • Wearable Art, open to the creativity of the designer
     
  • Society & Environment

How do the Apex Australia Teenage Fashion Awards benefit the participants?

To some participants the Apex Australia Teenage Fashion Awards is a boost to their confidence and self-esteem, as well as providing inspiration and the chance to grow. To others, it has been a stepping-stone into the world of fashion and design. Many past winners and finalists have progressed into the fashion industry, some to great heights, creating their own fashion labels while others have won scholarships to work in large fashion houses around the world!
