The 2013 Northland Bernina Fashion Awards.

Sandra Guest won the open Wearable art section with a garment called ‘Twenty Tui’

It was made from plastic Jenny Craig dinner trays. These were cut into teardrop shaped sequins and hand sewn onto a black shift dress.

The choker was made from the same material in white to form the fluffy choker feathers of a Tui.

The outfit was inspired by 1920 style Charlston wear and the model (Sandra’s great niece) danced a few Charlston steps as she walked down the runway.
