Stitching a bright career
Chenoah Diagne and Katie Goodlet will present garments at this year’s Styleaid.

Medina resident Katie Goodlet is sewing a bright future for herself in the fashion industry.

The 25-year-old is a fashion student at the Challenger Institute of Technology and has been selected, along with fellow student Chenoah Diagne, to showcase her garments at one of Perth’s most acclaimed fashion events, Styleaid.

Ms Goodlet, who recently placed second in the Australian Wool Fashion Awards for a wedding dress design, will unveil her work at the fashion fundraiser which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, at Burswood Entertainment Complex on July 27.

The theme of this year’s Styleaid event is children’s birthday parties and Ms Goodlet said she had explored the fun of a tea parties for her garment.

‘‘Sugared almonds provide the colour palette for my design,’’ she said.

‘‘The dress and hat include items you would find at a tea party, including doilies, tablecloth, flowers, vases and tea cups.’’
