the 10th anniversary DON’T WALK fashion show held at Kinkell Farm on the outskirts of St Andrews on Saturday night was another runaway success.

Organisers are hoping thousands of pounds have been raised for this year’s nominated charity, ZamCog, which is dedicated to the Shitima School in Zambia.

The charity encourages a self-sustaining route through education for children to transform themselves and provide hope for the country’s future.

Designers on show at this year’s event included Christian Westphal, Luka Maurer, Rosamosario and Lucza of London.

Toni & Guy were in charge of all of the hair-care and styling and Bobbi Brown was the official cosmetics partner.

The show’s reputation has been building with every year.

The first ever DON’T WALK had Prince William in the audience where he happened to notice a fellow undergraduate and wife-to-be up on the catwalk.

Now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the pictures of Kate modelling at the show have become known the world over and the event has become a major part in the story of the young couple’s romance.

Organisers say this year’s analogue photography award was a huge success, attracting more than 650 submissions from across the UK, the US, Ireland, Poland, Italy, Russia and France.

And they have also launched a Young Designer Award in partnership with Own Label with support from Not Just A Label.

Both awards will conclude with a final exhibition of the winning submissions at the contemporary art and design gallery White Space 11 in Edinburgh in May later this year.
