VS 2020 | Urban: Streetwear? In St Andrews?

Maiah reviews VS 2020 | Urban

For its inaugural year at St Andrews, VS 2020 | Urban certainly delivered.  Compared to some of St Andrews’ other shows such as FS and Don’t Walk, VS definitely stands out amongst what we may consider a typical fashion show.

The night started off at Falside Mill, a new venue which I had never been to.  Located a few minutes from St Andrews, guests were transported by bus to the location.  The relatively unknown location fit the theme of the show, from its underground launch party back in first semester and the feeling of not knowing what to expect, especially with the “intersection and amalgamation” of streetwear culture with hip-hop as an art.

Although the venue was slightly small, I instantly adored the intimacy and size of it.  Most of the guests seemed to know each other, which gave the show a sense of familiarness from the beginning, and cemented the fact that the VS team and all the attendees were here for one another.  Guests arrived from 6:30 to 7 pm, and the show started promptly at 8.  The stage was not raised high at all, which was perfect for everyone to see, and once the models walked out, they were close enough to touch, with music pumping through the room.  Despite the small hiccup at the beginning of the show (a fuse blew, stopping the music), it picked right back up due to the quick actions of the VS team.  Guests felt fully immersed into the show, from the changing lights and music diffusing through all corners of the room.

As for the fashion, it was unlike anything I had ever seen before.  I do not consider myself a wearer of streetwear, nor do I think I am edgy in any way.  However, the fashion at VS certainly was.  One of the first looks the models walked out in were monochromatic, all-black classic outfits adorned with gold jewellery.  It was a good, subtle choice to start off the show with, because as it continued, the outfits only became more colourful and eye-catching.

From oversized fur coats with striking block-lettered prints, Supreme varsity jackets, and faux-leather flares styled with white trainers, I was so impressed with the clothing.  It didn’t verge from the theme, and I believe I came away from the show knowing a little more about streetwear.  Some of the most striking scenes were the gym wear/athleisure range in neon colours and a daring outfit change mid-show.

After the show, the entire VS team, including the two executive directors, Dominic Reynolds and Sagar Sharma came out onstage to close the show and say a few words.  I can certainly say that the two of them and the whole VS team put on a fantastic show and hope that it runs again next year.  Afterwards, attendees made their way back to St Andrews to head to the afterparty held at the Vic, which began at 10:30.  I had never seen people have such a genuinely good time at a fashion show before, and I have been to my fair share of them.

Overall, I believe I prefer VS as a show compared to many of the larger ones seen at St Andrews.  Its size, style, team, and fashion were the perfect combination of unique and fun, and I would definitely go again because it was simply a great night out.  For its many obstacles it faced, the team pulled off a great night and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an event or fashion show offering something different from what the Bubble is used to.

  1. Your website and business look great and both seem well established but I could help you with designing new elements for your website which will make it more presentable as well as provide a long term support.

    I am messaging you today to compliment your business + to give you a heads up about the unreasonably low pricing I am charging (for a limited time) to new clients interested in my graphic design services.

  3. I have written content specific to your industry in order to produce a professional explainer video.
    Our process is so easy I can explain in under 10 minutes and, when implemented, it can get your business its next 100 clients/customers.

    I recently used this strategy with a client who is in the same industry as you, breaking down their pitch in fun, engaging, and oftentimes animated video formats that almost tripled their monthly sales rates.

    In the meantime, I have some sample explainer videos that were made specifically for your industry…
    Should I send them over?

  4. I reached out several months ago about how explainer videos help and the unique issues they solve.
    My team has created thousands of marketing videos including dozens in your field.

    As you know, Google is constantly changing its SEO algorithm. The only thing that has remained consistent is that adding an explainer video increases website rank and most importantly keeps customers on your page for longer, increasing conversions ratios.

    Simplify your pitch, increase website traffic, and close more business.
    Should I send over some industry-specific samples?
