Karen at St Andrews Fashion Show

Last Saturday, Eden got involved in the St Andrews Fashion Show. It was organised by the St Andrews University Charities Society and we had been approached by some of the organisers to participate by offering a range of outfits from Eden. A week before the show, we began to prepare by selecting the clothing items that Ruth and I thought would be perfect for the show. Here are the outfits we chose, waiting to be collected before the day of the show. 

This fashion show celebrates a range of fashion brands from the well established such as Phase Eight, to independent boutiques like us, and charity shops to show what they have to offer. The show is one of the top events on the student calendar in St Andrews. The fact that this show is where Prince William and Kate Middleton met makes this event very popular! The fashion show has been written about by British Vogue, Tatler Magazine and The New York Times, therefore this show has built up a prestige following and Eden was more than happy to be a part ofit. 

This was the 24th year of the St Andrews Fashion show and this year the money raised was donated to SANE, a mental health charity. The raffle included some very special prizes such as “The Fendi Experience”, which is a trip to Milan to visit a famous fashion house. Unfortunately we did not win but it I was glad to make a donation to the charity.  

As Eden was a sponsor for the show, I was allowed to go back stage before the show started. There were rails of clothing all labelled and ready in running order for each model. As with any fashion show, there were tensions and excitement back stage. Here are some photos of the back stage actions. 

The show was very professional and modern with a DJ on the stage and goodie bags. The audience stood around the catwalk as the models stepped elegantly. Here are more photos of the show. 

 

Here is a video of the Eden outfits on the catwalk. 

Thank you very much to Lauren and Tashi who got in contact with us from the University, we appreciate being involved in the fantastic show.
