AATFA celebrates 10 years in 2015, with regional and state finals being conducted from August through September and the prestigious National Final on October 24.

# AATFA2015 - Who will be crowned Young Designer of the Year?

While reality television seems to have taken hold of us, ‘the reality of it to most’ is that it does not feel all that real and achievable. However with the Apex Australia Teenage Fashion Awards, students have a real ‘Hands-on Encounter’ with today’s Australian fashion industry.


The excitement that Students and their families experience, the creations that are showcased and the lessons and knowledge that are learnt through our competition are providing young Australians with the vehicle from which they can discover the expectations and inner workings of what a demanding fashion industry career would bring if students decided to pursue their dreams of creating Australia’s next high flying fashion label.


While our national competition continues to go from strength to strenght, in its 10th year, AATFA provides many students with the essential platform and start that is needed to turn their fashion dreams into fashion reality!


Through opportunities such as this one or industry traineeships, tertiary placements or careers allowing our competitors to follow their passion; the Apex Australia Teenage Fashion Awards is just as exciting for our youth based organistaion to be involved in as it is for those students that enter and live their dream.


As we continue to grow the national competition, we are very pleased to be able to welcome passionate fashion lovers like Henry Roth and other leading fashion icons, labels and brands who take a very keen interest in the advancement of our competition.


2015 marks the 10th year that Apex has supported this amazing youth event with a National Final. Our aim through this move was strategic and it has allowed Apex Australia to maximise Melbourne’s near-by fashion centre, while allowing us to grow the competition to meet the expectations of first class professionalism. For our competitors we would expect to deliver nothing less.


Apex Australia welcomes entrants, family and friends from across our country to the regional, state and finally the 10th National Final, being held in conjunction with our wonderful supporters at the Whitehouse Institute of Design.


Happy 10th birthday AATFA - bring on the pinata!
