Limitless- Kangan’s end of year fashion event was a stunning success.

A collaborative melding of student effort and achievement across a range of industries, Limitless was Kangan’s vision of practical, real world training and skills and industry partnerships made into reality.

Held recently, its students did an outstanding job. This end of year celebration of a year’s work for its fashion students studying Certificates to Advanced Diplomas, Limitless, was also an opportunity for its Hair and Beauty, Visual Merchandising, Hospitality and Baking students to demonstrate their training at Kangan Institute, an opportunity they relished.

“It was a brilliant event, absolutely spectacular theme and effort. I’m so proud of the students involved” said Kangan Institute CEO, Trevor Schwenke.

It was a fantastic night with a number of significant milestones. Firstly, a chance to see the incredible talents of its Creative Industries’ Hair and Fashion students,

And it was also an opportunity for Kangan to announce an exciting new partnership with Guide Dogs Victoria. This collaboration is another example of Kangan’s commitment to being industry bound.
