The annual Apex Australia Teenage Fashion and Arts Manjimup regional heat was held on Saturday with 14 garments on display.
Of the garments entered into the competition, seven across the casual, formal, society and environment and wearable art categories were chosen to progress to the State final.
The Manjimup Apex Club’s annual event was the first of the regional heats held in the State and will be followed up by the State final in Mandurah on September 16.
Manjimup Apex Club president Steve Walsh thanked the club’s members, volunteers, students, audience and sponsors for their help in making the 2017 event a reality.
Former Manjimup resident Jordan Piggott was the event MC and will also be hosting the State final in September.
The National final will be held on October 21 at Mandurah, which is the first time it has been held in the WA since it became a national event in 2006.
