Claire Hwang is a Grade 11 student who has created a wedding gown. The dress is made of poly silk and organza, and features gardenia roses, ornate flowers and a plywood laser cut hairpiece.
Claire joined the Fashion Forward club because of her curiosity and inspiration from the previous year’s fashion show in Chapel. She was also eager to join because of her older sister – Claire was inspired by her hard work, compassion and interest in fashion. Throughout her experience, Claire learned the importance of commitment, participation, time management and organization. She has learned how to sew, use a sewing pattern and how to laser cut. Her advice to future participants is to always stay on task and have a healthy work schedule planned.
