Award-winning designer and Year 12 Shearwater student Oceana Piccone has been awarded the Youth prize at the prestigious Wearable Art Mandurah for Morphett’e – a costume made from hundreds of recycled plastic bags. Morphett’e was also a section winner at the Mullumbimby Steiner School’s 2017 Wearable Arts performance event. A painter, photographer, stylist and costume designer, Oceana has been creating garments for the Shearwater event since she was 12, winning prizes for every entry over the past five years. She says she was thrilled to have won her section of the Mandurah event, which saw her costume modelled by a professional ballerina and star in a photo shoot. ‘I almost didn’t enter it because the postage was so expensive!’ she said. Oceana, who has been accepted into LCI Melbourne Art and Design School to study a Bachelor of Design Arts in Fashion & Costume Design, has been a Shearwater student since she was seven, and credits the school with fostering her creativity. ‘As well as all the painting and drawing and making things, I’ve had so much encouragement along the way,’ she said.
