INDUSTRY AWARDS SCHEME_

THE 2020 INDUSTRY AWARDS SCHEME

Hoodedwept was founded on a strong belief in the global fashion community, in fashion-as-story and philathropy toward up and coming fashion professionals. As an Australian business with a local and international supply chain we have enjoyed and still enjoy, enormous support from our clients, key organisations and from the international fashion community as a whole .

To this end, we know first-hand the value of fostering potential and providing opportunities for committed graduates in, what can be, a challenging industry.

We present two industry awards to two successful graduates per year, hand picked from local fashion colleges at their graduation ceremony.

Both winners this year were selected from the Fashion Department at Curtin University.

Hoodedwept would like to sincerely thank Lecturers Dr Anne Farren, Joanna Quake and Kelsey Giambazi for their assistance and support of the 2020 Hoodedwept Industry Awards Scheme and congratulate the two successful students.
