Antoinette Talks To Students About Her Fashion Label
Our Year 11.5 Materials, Design & Textiles students were lucky to have former Santa Maria student, Antoinette Raphael, come in to talk about her career in the fashion industry, since leaving the College.
Antoinette graduated from the College in 2014 and since then has completed a fashion degree at Curtin University as well as launched her own up-and-coming fashion label ‘RAW WAR’.
Antoinette’s latest achievements have included being a featured designer in the Spring/Summer edition of British Vogue and showcasing her latest collection at London Fashion Week.
Having a young designer who has already achieved so much since leaving Santa Maria was extremely inspiring to the girls. Antoinette brought in some signature garments from her early collections, as well as her design workbooks to share with the girls and give them some motivation towards their current project.
The girls were very engaged throughout Antoinette’s presentation, which was full of lively photos and videos showcasing what she uses online to promote and sell her apparel. Antoinette told the girls that she still uses the basic skills she learnt here in Fashion and Textiles in her current designs today. We are extremely proud to have a former student living such a successful life and chasing her dreams of becoming a fashion designer.
