Year 8 Mekong+ Design Competition Winners and Exhibition

20 March 2015

The Year 8 Design Competition is now over and the exhibition is now open!

Pop along to Mekong Quilts Store at 68 Le Loi, District 1 to see the top 40 designs on display until Monday 30th March (listed below).

Congratulations to the winning students whose designs were unveiled at the opening exhibition last Thursday night and who received vouchers to purchase in store.

1st Place:                    Jungyoon Nam (8C)              $40 Voucher

2nd Place:                   Julie Dang (8B)                      $30 Voucher

3rd Place:                    Kimberley Jewell (8H)         $20 Voucher

Special Mention:      Aina Solis (8S)

Jungyoon Nam will get the opportunity to work with the designers of Mekong+ to bring her design to the production stage. She will also receive the finished product as her ultimate prize.

The winners and their proud families, teachers and friends enjoyed spending time looking through all the shortlisted designs on display and of course all the wonderful creations on sale – from bamboo bikes & helmets, hand stitched quilts, to bags and cushions. The founder of Mekong+ Mr Bernard Kervyn spoke about the organisation, especially their work in the community and the emphasis on participation which sounded very similar to our own vision here in the BIS community.

The prizes were given out by Mr Bernard and the winning designs unveiled. The three winning students spoke about their inspiration and the meaning in their Lunar New Year/Year of the Goat designs:

Jungyoon described the bright colours of her lanterns, the outline of the goat created by the rope and the traditional TET and Vietnamese colours of red & yellow in the lettering to complete the winning bag design

Julie’s cushion design used very bright colours and patterns, with TET flowers from the North & South. The imagery would be recreated using applique – a favoured technique of the quilt makers.

Finally, Kimberley’s two sided bag design featured a central moon with the transition of the Horse (in yellow) to the Goat (in green) – a simple but striking design.

It was obvious that a great deal of thought and effort had gone into all the designs.
