A gold star goes out to Westfield Bondi Junction (WBJ) today, having just launched their Whitehouse College Fashion Initiative. Dedicated to supporting emerging Australian fashion talent, WBJ will contribute 15K to a second year college student to help cover the cost of their third year studies. Celebrating the launch on Tuesday night, Erika Heynatz (in Louis Vuitton) hosted the evening to a fashionable Sydney crowd.
The winner will be selected in June 2010 based on their end of year submissions. The judging panel includes Leanne Whitehouse (Principal), InStyle editor Kerrie McCallum and both WBJ and Westfield representatives. Past graduates of the college include Camilla and Marc and Yeojin Bae. I'll toast to that.
