Students from five different programmes did the Institute proud at the inaugural Artisitic Wearable Expression (AWE) show held at Aston Norwood Function Centre in Kaitoke, Upper Hutt on 30 June.
A volunteer group of twelve Te Auaha students, studying through WelTec, were able to show their talent and skills creating hairstyles and makeup to match the artistic wearable creations.
“Working on shows like AWE gives the students the opportunity to use the skills gained during the course, expand their skill base and learn new techniques,” says senior tutor Wanda Menchi. “They get to see and try things that are often outside the square and that wouldn’t be worn on the street which is valuable learning and a lot of fun.”
“The students were amazing – enthusiastic, well-presented and very professional. We had many positive comments on the model’s looks. I was very proud of them all.”
Programmes represented were: Wellington Trades Academy Hair and Beauty, Certificate in Makeup and Skin care, Certificate in Hairdressing Salon Support, Certificate in Hairdressing Emerging Stylist and Certificate in Hairdressing Professional Stylist (year 3 apprentice class).
