The day is a much-loved tradition at Merbein P-10 College and features a fashions-on-the-field competition and relay race.

Students gathered at recess to watch Year 9 and 10 fashion design students strut down the catwalk in their own creations.

This year’s trend was far from the haute couture usually associated with the races, with students using garbage bags to construct their garments.

Fashion design teacher Chris Bettison said the dresses were an assessment task, with students marked on things such as composition, colour choices, creativity and planning.

First place went to a fitted, black and white dress designed by Brittany Vanoest and modelled by Allira Grey.

The students’ attention then turned to the big relay race, featuring students from Prep to Year 10.
