If you haven’t heard already, this year’s RAG Fashion Show will be held on the 10th of March. All donations and money raised will be used to support Mind, a mental health charity that provides help and support for those experiencing mental health problems. It will be a fabulous night of fun, fashion, and raising money for a really good cause.
The theme of the fashion show is affordable student fashion, and the show’s co-ordinators are creating high fashion looks with cost effective pieces to inspire university students with ideas on how to create a high end look but for a reasonable price. Those who have an interest in fashion or love creating different looks with their #ootd’s should definitely come along for some ideas!
The full line of brands that the models are showcasing are still in the process of being confirmed, but Topshop, Ann Summers, Jack Wills and Doc Martins are definitely in for the show. There are a diverse range of gorgeous models this year, representing different heights and body shapes. This has always been a crucial aim of those organising the fashion show, as they aim to represent the beauty of all of our very own Newcastle University students.
"It’s always one of the most popular events of the Newcastle Uni calendar, and there’s an infamous walk that you DON’T want to miss"
This week, I went behind the scenes of the promotional video shoot, and I was able to see it being filmed and directed. I managed to interview a few of the gorgeous models - Katherine, Yasmine and Ellie - about why they wanted to be part of the fashion show. They talked about how this is a really enjoyable way to raise money for charity, an ideal way to make lots of new friends, and a great opportunity to get involved with RAG. So if you missed out on trying out for the auditions this year, make sure you come along next year. The show is very professionally done, and lots of people will be coming together and working hard to organise it all in the name of charity. The video will be posted soon on the Facebook RAG page and also on TCTV, so make sure you watch and share it with all your friends!
The big night will be set out with entertainment between walks - mostly singing acts and dances organised by the NU Dance Society - so look forward to exceptional performances as well as hot fashion walks. There really is no excuse not to attend this amazing night to have lots of fun and drinks while raising money for a good cause. It’s always one of the most popular events of the Newcastle Uni calendar, and there’s an infamous walk that you DON’T want to miss. Tickets will start to sell on the 19th of February on the NUSU website, so remember to get yours before they’re sold out!
