Student Wearable Art Awarded at Toi

03 Aug Student Wearable Art Awarded at Toi

A group of Year 10 students created some amazing wearable art to represent the college at Showquest’s Auckland competition in the Toi Wearable Art category last term. Congratulations to the following students, whose incredible creations were recognised with four awards across three categories in the regional competition:

  • Inventive Materials: The Kelpie – Joy Pfister
  • Storytelling: Miyamoto Musashi – Liam Gore
  • Garment Construction: Apotheosis – Saralee van Wyk, Luca Newton, and Amy Ye
  • Garment Construction: The Raven – Finlay Newton and Emily Muir


Pakuranga College was selected as one of just seven schools nationwide to compete in the Digital National Final senior category last Friday, where Liam Gore was named one of the Top 10 National Finalists!

Liam’s Miyamoto Musashi creation beat out over 250 garments to be named a national finalist.

The judge’s feedback was:

“An interesting composition that draws you in; creating the structure and form of the garment has been well thought out and the judges in particular enjoyed the use of the bottle tops for the front of the garment. This garment has a powerful silhouette and is strong in terms of the Myths & Legends design brief.”

Ka rawe, outstanding Liam!
