ORGANISERS of the 10th anniversary DON’T WALK fashion show have just over a week to go before models hit the catwalk.
the hugely popular student event - Kate Middleton was one of the models for the 2002 show - will be held next Saturday, March 10, and hopes to raise thousands for this year’s nominated charity, ZamCog.
The charity is dedicated to the Shitima School in Kabwe, Zambia, of which the main aim is to encourage a self-sustaining route through education, for children who can transform themselves from those who have no hope, to being those who are the hope for Zambia’s future.
A spokesperson for the show told the Citizen: ‘‘We’re currently in the process of putting the finishing touches to what will undoubtedly be our most successful show to date.
‘‘Our official cosmetics partner, Bobbi Brown, will showcase their latest collection alongside some of Europe’s most cutting edge designers including Christian Westphal, Luka Maurer, Rosamosario and Lucza of London among others, while Toni & Guy will oversee all this year’s hair-care and hair-styling to produce an artistic spectacle like no other. ‘‘
Among the audience for the first DON’T WALK was Prince William, at the time a student at St Andrews University where he met his wife-to-be, who was a fellow undergraduate.
The couple, now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were married in April of last year, having visited St Andrews two months earlier.
Interestingly, the photograph of Kate wearing ‘‘that dress’’ was taken by former freelance photographer, Walter Neilson, who is now a staff man with the Fife Free Press Group of newspapers which includes the St Andrews Citizen.
