The long wait for prize winnings from a Sydney fashion show
ended for a Dunedin designer yesterday.
Dunedin fashion graduate Emily Scott (21) said $12,500 in
prize money was put in her account yesterday for winning the
inaugural Australian Graduates Fashion Week in November.
The promoters told her the remainder of the prizes, a
cosmetics and an accessories gift pack, would be sent today.
She was ''thrilled'' the promoters were honouring the prizes,
Miss Scott said.
''It's a shame it got to the point where it had to go to the
media, but I don't know if I would have received the outcome
so quickly if I hadn't.''
She had no immediate plans for the prize money but would use
it for a fashion project.
''I'm going to use it to further my career. I won't be
whittling it away.''
