It’s Fashion Show Season!

Maiah and Priyam tell us what to wear to every single fashion show coming up this semester

While the first semester at St Andrews has its fair share of infamous events (Opening Ball, Szentek, Christmas Ball), semester 2 is what I like to call “Fashion Show Season.”  This semester will bring a slew of events sporting the most outrageous outfits and fellow peers strutting it down the catwalk like there is no tomorrow.  It is a chance for people to show off their crazy personal style (and probably get outlandishly drunk at the same time). With one fashion show rolling around after the other, this begs the age-old question of “what to wear?”  Each show is distinct, with its own unique vibe and this can often be stressful in deciding what to wear to each show if you plan on attending more than one.  Here are some tips and tricks on what to wear for each show:
VS 
St Andrews’ newest show is meant to show off the coolest streetwear and hip-hop inspired fashion from cities like New York and London.  The show aims to “remove you from the bubble and transport you to downtown New York and across the globe,” so expect eclectic and outrageous streetwear outfits gracing the night.

VS will be a fashion show where you shouldn’t be afraid to stand out and show the edgier side of your style.  Anything and everything is acceptable, whether you pick a pair of neon trackies or velvet dress with an oversized camoflauge jacket.  Gather inspiration from streetwear not just from New York, whether its the minimalist and relaxed style of a matching pantsuit in pastel colours and white trainers from downtown Oslo or a sophisticated fur coat paired with jeans and leather stilletos sported in Paris.

CATWALK
This year’s theme for one of St Andrews’ most beloved shows is “Playtime”!  Expect a fun-filled evening “inspired by the childish fun of playing dressing-up games,” full of bright colours and miss-matched fabrics, textiles, and accessories.

Don’t be afraid to go bold, whether it’s with jewellery, footwear, or makeup.  Mix bold crimson eyeshadow with a chunky statement necklace and holographic dress, or lavender tinted glassesfrosted lips, and graphic-printed trousers.  Don’t be afraid to mix prints or wear colours you normally would not.  Playtime is all about having fun and stepping out of your comfort zone.  If you don’t want to mix it up too much, wear neutral colours with a bold shoe or paint-splattered denim jacket.

FS
In its 28th year running, FS this year will be in support of Fashion Revolution, “an organisation that celebrates fashion and raises awareness of the most pressing issues in the fashion industry today.”  Expect to see sustainable and recycled pieces on the runway, and unique clothes that reflect the changes being made in the fashion industry today.

In picking your outfit for FS, try and play along with its theme – sustainable fashion and a keener awareness for purchasing a brand new outfit versus shopping from your old closet.  Don’t be afraid to (gasp!) re-wear an outfit you’ve already worn, or upcycle something old into a brand new piece unique to you.  Add a slit to a satin midi skirt, sew on some thrifted lace to the edge of a blouse, or match a pair of striped flares you wear on a night out with an oversized men’s blazer found in a charity shop.  You can also check sites like Poshmark or Depop for pieces that are brand new or slightly worn rather than buying retail – buying secondhand greatly reduces the environmental impact of the fashion industry and gives the item two more years of life.  Get creative with it and don’t be afraid to mess up if you’re doing some diy!

SITARA

Sitara stands out for its diversity; a feeling of comfort evoked by a plethora of fashion styles adopted by the guests. Here, you are not meant to stand out rather, it is about fitting in; sort of matching the puzzle pieces through your outfits to create a unique sense of belonging.

So, if you wish to take out one great piece of advice from this article before choosing your outfit, remember this: include yourself in the mix of the cultural extravaganza and embrace the theme at hand. Be it the traditional and colourful saris for women exuding the vibe we get in Indian Weddings (If you have been to any one of them, you would know how glamorous and grand it is) to the elegant kurta pyjamas for men to make you feel like royalty, do not be afraid to adopt outfits from other cultures just for this one night. However, it is not always about immersing yourself into the theme of the event. You can always get your favourite suits and pantsuits out that will provide you with the comfort needed to enjoy the event at its fullest.

UBUNTU

Like Sitara, the Ubuntu fashion show also celebrates cultures. As the name itself suggests, “Ubuntu” or Togetherness is about revelling in the African culture, so full of energy and diversity that listing them here would require a lot of time (and words). So, get ready to max out to the fullest, dance the night away and takeaway the joyous nature of this event back home (and uni) with you even when it is over.

For a night like this, dress yourself in your own favourite vibrant way. Ubuntu is well-known for its authenticity and so, choose your outfit according to your own taste. Add into your chosen outfits with some accessories; a matching pair of super-sized earrings (from a big hoop to a drop, it is a growing trend right now) or just a simple elegant clutch bag can go a long way in really adding onto your dress. For men, why not get your most loved scarves out which can help in both avoiding the cold while sprinkling in some stylish flair to your outfit. Just remember, represent yourself as the event has so well done in the past.

DON’T WALK 

The Don’t Walk Charity Show is very well known for its experimentalist and rather bold approach towards fashion. For 2020, the Don’t Walk team want to raise awareness on issues that has a global impact and thus wish to explore the “hyper material world and its conflict against nature.” This approach seems very unique in the fashion scene across St. Andrews and is surely going to be an enjoyable yet immersive experience.

So, why not look for ways where you as an audience member can also implement the idea of the show? But you do not need to go out of your way to do this. There are simple (also elegant and stylish) ways which you can adopt to become more in tune with nature by both doing your bit and looking stunning while doing it.  From luxury brands to street wear, there are so many choices that are now opting to turn green and sustainable. You can go exploring into the fashion world of vegetarian-leather jackets and fur-free (furry like) sweater and choose something which you can adorn gracefully and guilt-free. There are various brands you can look into like Stella McCartneyIsabelle Fox among others that are adopting a more sustainable approach to fashion.

  19. I oversee a vape shop directory and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the USA that also advertises CBD product lines. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have asked us to take out PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store directory. We do not offer for sale CBD goods such as CBD oil. We merely provide marketing services to CBD companies. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Wellness Store and if you take a close look, you will see that they supply a fairly wide-ranging variety of CBD goods, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement method. It seems that PayPal is applying contradictory standards to many different companies. As a result of this constraint, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restrained my payment choices and now, I am intensely reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have talked with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is doing is totally against the law and inequitable as it should be applying a systematic criterion to all companies. I am yet to talk with one more legal representative from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.

  20. Things i have observed in terms of laptop or computer memory is the fact there are features such as SDRAM, DDR or anything else, that must fit the requirements of the mother board. If the computer’s motherboard is pretty current while there are no main system issues, updating the memory literally takes under an hour. It’s one of many easiest pc upgrade processes one can imagine. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

  24. I run a vape store submission site and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that additionally offers CBD product lines. A Calendar month afterwards, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been restricted and have requested us to get rid of PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop website directory. We do not offer CBD products such as CBD oil. We simply offer internet marketing professional services to CBD companies. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Retail store and if you take a good peek, you will witness that they supply a pretty comprehensive series of CBD goods, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment method. It emerges that PayPal is applying twos sets of rules to different companies. As a result of this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related web site. This has limited my payment possibilities and presently, I am intensely dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have spoken to a barrister from a Magic Circle law firm in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is doing is totally not legal and discriminatory as it ought to be applying an uniform standard to all companies. I am still to consult with an additional attorney from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
