Students turn catwalk models

STUDENTS from Casino High School became models on the catwalk last week when they displayed items from the Casino-based Wake Up Time Weaving group to an appreciative audience.

Year 10 student Breanna Hickling has been having lessons with the weaving group every Tuesday fortnight at the school for the past 4-6 months.

"(The aunties in the weaving group) put a lot of effort in to each of us," she said.

"Doing this fashion parade has been a really good experience."

The girls modelled silk hand-painted dresses and woven jewellery, handbags and hats the aunties had made, that had also been displayed at the inaugural Australian Indigenous Fashion Week in April this year.

The Healing Foundation in conjunction with Intra at the Buttery has supported the Wake Up Time group and Regional Arts NSW has funded the fortnightly classes and the fashion parade.
