A Student of Fashion Study Program Won the First Place in the Fashion Technology Category at the National Selection of ASC X
A student of Fashion Study Program of the Faculty of Engineering, Yogyakarta State University, Dewinta Megarini, won the first place in the fashion technology category at the National Selection of ASC X in Jakarta recently. Along with the second and third winners, she will join an eight month training. At the end of the training, one of them will be picked to represent Indonesia at the next ASC X that will be held in Vietnam next year.
Dewinta explained that it was difficult to win the competition. “During the competition, the committee only gave us ten hours to make a Vietnamese traditional dress,” she explained.
“In a moment, all participants should think fast and right to choose the technique in making the dress. Having made a decision, we should cut the fabric, sew and give a final touch by putting ornaments,” she added.
“I was very grateful when the board of judges picked my work as the best and most suitable dress that met the criteria. Moreover, they also liked the ornaments I put.”
She stated that her success cannot be separated from the support of Fashion Study Program. “The lecturers helped and guided me in preparing for the competition. Even, the Head of the Study Program, Emi Yulianti, M. Si. assisted me during the competition in Jakarta. I really beg everybody’s support so that during the training I can do my best and be chosen to represent Indonesia.” (hryo)
