DONT WALK breaks fashion conventions

Hot models and fresh-faced students from the University of St Andrews took over Kinkell Byre on Friday night for the highly anticipated annual DONT WALK Charity Fashion Show.

Reinforced by ‘RBS Cocktails’ and Bibi’s cupcakes, provided by the sponsors, the 1000 guests aggressively sought out the best views for the show well before its 8.30 start.

The theme of this year’s show was Prison Break, and it certainly broke conventions with its celebration of eccentric style, surreal ensembles, and provocative presentation.

Showcasing established designers such as Jill Stuart as well as new talent such the Vogue-featured Charlotte Taylor, this year’s show was the perfect amalgamation of professional fashion and student initiative.

DONT WALK has established itself as the highest-profile and most prestigious student fashion show in the U.K , with Kate Middleton’s participation as a model in the 2002 show granting it the royal seal of approval.

The chosen charity this year was ‘Right to Play,’ a Canadian-based charity that aims “to create a healthier and safer world through the power of sport and play,” and the organisers are ecstatic to have raised nearly £15000 from this year’s show.
