RMIT Floral Fashion
Each year RMIT Fashion Design students are given a theme on which to base their amazing and creative plant-based designs. The RMIT Floral Fashion competition forms part of the students’ curriculum for their third year of study, as part of a design studio in which they explore exhibition as a mode for contemporary fashion enterprise. These designs will be displayed in the Great Hall of Flowers across the five days of the Show at site C27.
