SunSmart Fashion

2016 SunSmart Fashion winning designSince 2011, the SunSmart team at Cancer Council WA has partnered with Perth universities and technical colleges to produce a SunSmart garment, showing how sun protection and style can go hand in hand.

2016 is the second year of our partnership with fashion students at Curtin University, who took up the challenge to design a fashionable garment for young people that not only looked great but offered excellent sun protection. The winning design will manufactured and made available for sale to the public.

The project dispels the myth that protecting your skin from overexposure to UV rays means compromising on fashion, and also encourages fashion designers to incorporate sun-protective elements into their designs.

This year’s winning design (pictured left) is by Gracen Woodcock. The garment features sun-protective design elements such as a high neckline and long sleeve, and is made of a very high UV protective fabric.

Previous winning SunSmart garments are shown below. Congratulations to our past winners (l-r) Emma Watson (2015),  Lauren Willems, Silvia Dzemail and Cassandra Pittard (2014),  Kristina Tarkova (2013), Nina Grabic (2012) and Damian Pomerantseff (2011).
