Fashion success for local student

Wednesday, 30 November 2011


2011 has been a huge year for Duncraig resident Cherish Armstrong.

She won the coveted Contemporary Eveningwear student prize at the 2011 Perth Fashion Festival, and is currently finishing her final year in fashion design at Edith Cowan University.

Her whirlwind year is set to culminate in the 2011 School of Communications and Arts graduate show, which opens this week.

The show, entitled Something’s Happening, will launch on Thursday 1 December and showcases art, design, fashion, photography and films produced by the 2011 graduating class.

For Cherish, the event is a chance to celebrate her hard work, and the work of her classmates.

“The 2011 graduation shows are the pinnacle of our time at ECU. It is amazing to stand back and see how far we have all come in discovering who we are as artists and future designers,” Cherish said.

“The grads show is a chance for everyone to come together and acknowledge the wealth of creativity that continues to grow in Perth, and I’m so proud to be involved.”

So what’s next for this talented ECU graduate?

“I’m looking forward to further developing my own designs, creating pieces that are delicately time indulgent (or) both unique and elegant. Thanks to the support of ECU, I feel ready to take on the competitive world of fashion design and really make an impact!”

The 2011 graduation show is open from Thursday, 1 to Friday, 16 December at ECU’s Mount Lawley Campus.

Cherish’s work will be displayed at the Contemporary Fashion Exhibition, Reticent and Askew, which closes the two-week exhibition on the 16th of December
