Hannah Tan, a student at UTS and one of the recipients of the 2016 AWET fashion student grant, won the Australian Fashion Fund Scholarship/Internship Prize for 2016/2017, with the collection facilitated by the Trust’s grant.
Winners of the Prize receive a USD$20,000 grant and a 6-month internship with a global fashion powerhouse in New York City or Europe, and most likely Hannah will intern at Calvin Klein.
The Australian Wool Education Trust Grant 2016, alongside ongoing support from The Woolmark Company, has been invaluable throughout my Honours experience. It was not only the financial aid that assisted in building the collection, but also the wealth of knowledge and advice from members of the company. It has truly been a great honour to have received the grant, creating visibility and success for my work.
