A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of being involved in the charity fashion show run by LINE – a fashion society here at the University of Warwick. I’ve been loosely following the society’s activities since my first year at university and I even attended the show in 2016 with a friend. Truth be told, despite loving all things fashion for a long time, I never got involved with the society as it seemed quite intimidating to me. Well, not anymore…
My good friend Déaghlan is on the executive committee for the society and encouraged a bunch of us to try out as models for the show. I’m so glad he did because it made us get out of our comfort zone a little and just have fun! I was put in the ‘Sustainable Ambition’ section which is all about sustainability and nature. Initially, I thought I was really misplaced in this section as my entire wardrobe essentially consists of black, some leather goods and anything but ‘natural’ materials. However, in the end, I realised that my floral embroidered dress from Talulah La Maison fit the theme perfectly so it all worked out in the end. I don’t know whose executive decision it was to let me open the show but I wasn’t going to say no to that, haha! That was a nice little bucket list moment, even if it’s not the ‘real’ deal.
This blog post has an abundance of photos from the night with most of them being taken backstage. The show was followed by an afterparty at CLINK so that was a great way to round off the night. I know that it’s a massive photobomb and it would have sufficed for me to post 10 at most… but it’s such a nice memory for me so I wanted to include as many from the night as possible! I hope you can allow my narcissism this one time – “it’s for the mems!!!“. Totally justified, right?
If there’s one takeaway from this blog post, I hope that you, too, step outside of your comfort zone every once in a while and challenge yourself to do something you thought you’d never do.
Have you ever been involved with a (charity) fashion show?
