Students on the Muizenberg campus of False Bay TVET College showed their love for planet earth by hosting a fashion show with a green twist for Valentine’s Day: all the garments modelled needed to be made from recycled items.

Held on Friday the event was inspired by the student representative council.

Mariaana Herne, Muizenberg campus head, says: “Activities of this nature help students find a balance between academics and social development.

“False Bay TVET College is passionate about sustainability. As you will be able to see throughout the campuses, we have created an environment for recycling and responsible habits.

“This event was another fun way for the college to bring sustainability front of mind.”

An extended lunch hour for the fashion show saw students flock to the lecture hall, which was transformed into a runway.

Judges selected the winners of the most creative and innovative designs.

Winner Leeandra Francis, a Tourism student, says: “The best part of the event was the making of the dress, because I learnt something about myself – I am actually creative. And my classmates agreed by supporting and voting for me as the winner. I feel amazing and proud of myself.”

The runner-up of the competition was Malba Cokile, also a Tourism student, and third place was shared by Stacey-Lee Cozett and Melanie Sims.
