Secondary and tertiary students designed and created stunning outfits made mostly from materials originally bought and used for a non-clothing purpose. The awarded entries encourage viewers to consider sustainability issues in the fashion industry. To celebrate the International Year of Biodiversity, this year's entries were inspired by Australian animals.

The judges chose the winners and runners-up during a fashion parade at the Museum and these awarded entries will be on display.
