Oceanna’s winning costume Morphett’e. Photo supplied

A Mullumbimby student has won a national wearable art prize for her costume made entirely of plastic bags.

Since the age of 12, Shearwater Steiner School student Oceana Pearl has been making winning wearable art pieces for the school’s annual WAVE event.

Now 17, Oceana is in her final year at Shearwater. With the encouragement of her teachers, she decided to enter the Western Australian wearable arts show in Mandurah.

Her wearable art work, Morphett’e, was chosen for the show and, over the weekend, was awarded first place in the under 18 youth section.

The winning piece was made from hundreds of plastic bags, which were sewn and sculpted into the piece.
