Natasha - winner of The Little Black Dress category

Natasha (above right) from Cronulla was the 1st place winner in The Little Black Dress category, winning a trip to Paris with a two week summer course at the French fashion institute - Esmod International. The judges loved her simple but very effective dress design which featured a multi-layered ruffled neckpiece made from various silk and cotton textures which was totally de-tachable!!!!

Natasha makes a small range of clothing that she sells at the markets on weekends as a little side venture and is well on the way to fulfilling a life long dream of starting her own label.

Last weekend at the Paddington markets, she met her wonderful model Elle who purchased a piece from her. On the spur of the moment, Natasha changed her mind about modelling this dress herself and instead asked Elle if she would model it at our event the following Wednesday. She happily agreed.... and there you have it....the rest, as they say, is history. Natasha is on her way to Paris and it looks like these two will remain great friends.
