WoolOn fashion event proves to be family affair

It seemed like a case of fashion design running in the genes at last night's Mirror WoolOn Creative Fashion event, when Daphne Randle and granddaughter Kensa Randle, both from Alexandra, each picked up awards.

Mrs Randle was awarded the Supreme Award, as well as first equal in the creative category for her design Tribute to Christchurch Cathedral. She also won the knitwear category with her design Sea and Sky.

Kensa (12) won the young designers category with her design Merino Queen.

There were 47 entries in the event.

The other winners were.- Creative: Laurel Judd, of Napier, with Oh Possum (first equal with Mrs Randle). Streetwear: Viv Tamblyn, of Gore, with Powerade. Felted: Denise McGirr, of Naseby, with Big Bad Wolf. Menswear: Joan Leach, of Dunedin, with Car Coat Revisited.

Special Occasion: Melanie Child, of Waitaki, with Suit Jacket Dress. Accessory: Carolyn Laing, of Clyde.
