National Apex Australia Teenage Fashion and Arts (AATFA)

LCI Art & Design School was the location for the National Apex Australia Teenage Fashion and Arts (AATFA) Awards. Having won the Casual Wear, Environment & Society and Wearable Art categories at the State Finals, Kiralee Welsh automatically had her three entries qualify for the National Finals.

The top two awardees from each category from each state and territory throughout Australia converge on Melbourne for the annual finals. This is the fourth year in a row that Kiralee has represented Queensland at the National Finals. Dana Andersen was fortunate to accompany Kiralee to Melbourne and modelled two of the entries.

A grant through the Flying Arts Alliance Regional Arts Grant program made the trip possible for the girls. After a crazy whirlwind weekend, Kiralee was awarded runner-up with her ‘Cicada’ inspired metamorphosis piece in the Wearable Art category. Dana modelled the piece on the runway beautifully with the automated wings opening and closing which added to the theatrics of the piece.
