Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : January 14th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 15, 2009 11 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Anthea's a material girl SHIREEN KHALIL Check out the video of ANTHEA NICOLAOU's interview on our website. Reporter SHIREEN KHALIL was lucky enough to wear one of her most expensive outfits www.innerwestweekly.com.au WHILE her name isn't as popular as sass & bide or Versace, one day it could be just as well known. UTS fashion graduate Anthea Nicolaou, of Concord, scored her- self a distinction with her $7000 end-of-year collection. Her 15 pieces, which range from neutral-coloured skirts, singlets, dresses and pants, clearly im- pressed the judges and 300 audi- ence members at the exclusive 2008 end-of-year UTS fashion show. ''It cost thousands to put together, including buying the material and making the outfits, but if I were to sell them they'd be worth between $300 and $1800, the most expensive being the leather pencil skirt,'' Ms Nicolaou said. ''My collection, which was mainly made from leather, was based on the female form and the way technology and history has influenced ideas of beauty.'' Like any young girl, Ms Nicolaou would play dress-ups with her sisters, but while they grew out of it, Ms Nicolaou kept her passion for fashion. ''We used to make Barbie doll outfits from my grandmother's scrap fabrics but it wasn't until I was 14 that I started making my own things, from frocks, to pyjamas and bags,'' she said. Ms Nicolaou, who's always had a fascination with fabric, de- scribes her designs as more upmarket than her personal style. ''My garments are a bit more sophisticated than my own per- sonal style -- they are chic rather than girly.'' Ms Nicolaou gets a lot of her inspiration from French fashion designer Nicholas Ghesquiere, ''who is nothing less than amaz- ing''. ''He does fabulous things with fabric and combines technology with what's happening in the world now,'' she said. While creating her own fashion line is her ultimate dream, Ms Nicolaou is concentrating on get- ting as much experience as poss- ible. ''I want to work for a successful Australian label before I start my own label, and develop my repu- tation before I break into the fashion world, which I'd like to do in about five years,'' she said. New roof, labs, gym for school THE $6 million upgrade of Burwood Girls' High School is near completion, Strathfield State Labor MP Virginia Judge says. Among the completed specialist and support facilities at Burwood Girls' are five new science labor- atories and a newly-designed, re- furbished library roof. ''These new facilities will en- rich the learning and working environment of students and teachers, and complement the school's nurturing and dynamic programs,'' Ms Judge said. Remaining works to be com- pleted include the movement stu- dio and fitness complex, which will replace the existing gym- nasium. ''The works also include for- malising car parking and remov- ing the driveway in the centre of the school,'' Ms Judge said. ''It will become an extension to the playground, giving students more area to relax on their breaks.'' It is anticipated the remaining works will be finished by day one of first term. Ms Judge said the State Govern- ment was working hard to pro- vide students and teachers with the best facilities possible. ''We are spending more than $2 billion over four years to de- liver the largest public education and training capital works program ever undertaken in NSW,'' she said. The upgrade is part of the Rees Government's $648 million in school upgrades.
