Congratulations also to EFTAG for their incredible Fashion Parade "Flights of Fancy. A full house and a seamless event of fun, colour and pure fashion. On Sunday 21 May evening the 200 people attending EFTAG's Wearable Art Fashion Parade, Flights of Fancy, at St Mary's Performing Arts Centre in Moruya thoroughly enjoyed one of the social highlights of the year. One guest said she thought she was in Paris! People really loved the introduction of a catwalk and lights for the 7th EFTAG Wearable Art Fashion Parade event. The champagne and canapes were a big hit. EFTAG artist members produced a wonderful collection of amazing and creative art fashion. EFTAG has a membership of 34 artists specialising in Fibre and Textiles, including the very talented Leigh-Anne Sydenham of Narooma who created the gorgeous “ Flamingo Sunrise” outfit, modeled by Mica, the troupe leader of The Haniyami interpretive dancers. If you missed out this year, make sure you purchase your ticket early next year!
