Athina Tucciarone

Grade 9
Athina Tucciarone is a Grade 9 student who created a blazer with her partner, Sarinah Goolam. The blazer is light blue, made from broadcloth fabric and features a collage of retro comic strips.

Athina joined the Fashion Forward club as she was interested in fashion and wanted to try something new. Throughout her experience, she explored her sense of style and fashion and learned that it is okay to stand out. Athina also learned how much time goes into creating clothes and the difficulty of designing something from scratch. She learned how to use the sewing machine, sticker printer and heat press in the process. Athina's advice to future participants is to design something that is unique to your style, ideas and self.
