22 Tuesday August 9 2016 SELWYN TIMES Fashion Music-inspired design takes award • By Annabelle Dick A POLYTECH student’s collection based on a Miles Davis album has taken away top spot in menswear design at the Hokonui Fashion Design Awards with his jazz-influenced collection. Will Roper, 19, of Ara Institute of Canterbury, entered two looks into the menswear category in the competition in Gore at the weekend. The fashion school’s secondyear students swept up all the awards for the menswear section with Pera-Kate May, second, Rachel Bell, third, and Merrin Mortimer, fourth. Mr Roper said it was a big shock and he was really stoked with the result. “I was really surprised, I’ve never won any awards,” he said. His winning look was a pair of mid-calf, tailored trousers with a double pleated front, turtle neck jumper and oversized doublebreasted wool suit jacket. His collection ‘Sanctuary’ is based on Miles Davis’ 1970 album ‘Bitches Brew’. In the late 60s-early 70s Davis started to move away from pure jazz that made him famous and he started to experiment with different sounds. “He was one of the first people to add different instruments into jazz so when people think of jazz they think of horns, saxophones, drums and double bass - but he added in electric guitars, marimbas, synthesizers and all different sorts of things,” Mr Roper said. “His music still took its influence from jazz but it’s not jazz anymore it’s something different he created. I wanted to take the same concept and apply it to tailoring - tailoring is a very traditional aspect of clothing just like jazz and they’re both considered quite fancy. I wanted to add new media to my clothes like he added new instruments FASHION FORWARD: Secondyear fashion student Will Roper took out the menswear award at the Hokonui Fashion Design Awards in the weekend.

His next collection is based on Miles Davis’ 1959 album ‘Kind of Blue’ where he experiments with the colour blue, blues music, modern artists use of blue and comfort wear. He is also reading a paper on abstract algebra which he hopes to draw on for future looks. “I think that would be really cool to apply to a collection. I want to have all the patterns and measurements have significance like have all the measurements be the golden ratio or pi.” Mr Roper is in his second year at Ara’s fashion school gaining a Bachelor of Design. He hopes to create his own label in the future. DESIGNER FASHION AT OUTLET PRICES SMART BRANDS SMARTER PRICES HORNBY 409 Main South Road | Open 10am–5pm, 7 days
