AgArt show

By Country News

The AgArt fashion show had its final parade of costumes designed entirely from materials found around the farm at the Elmore Field Days yesterday.

Avant Garde category winning designer Nola Wallis from Serviceton said she was an AgArt addict.

She said she was not sure what she would do with her creative mind now the competition had ended.

“I've always wanted to work with bones again" Nola said.

“I used bones a few years ago and I thought, seeing as it's the last AgArt competition I wanted to revisit my favourites to work with.”

AgArt model Sahara Rodda wore Nola Wallis' winning Farewell costume.

“It's pretty cool, it's a surreal experience,” she said.

AgArt co-ordinator and general interest chair Lorraine Trewick said she was disappointed the event was over.

“In my journey I've met some wonderful people,” she said."I couldn't have done it without the designers.”

Next year's event will showcase a parade of costumes throughout the past 19 years.
