Countdown to charities campaign fashion show
The University of St Andrews Charities Campaign Fashion Show will take place later this month (Sunday 23 March 2003).
It is hoped that the “Don’t Walk” event, which will feature a range of haute couture, will raise up to £20,000. An original painting by world renowned Scottish artist Jack Vettriano, Patron of the show, will be auctioned at the glitzy event.
The show, which achieved international acclaim in 2002, will this year support Juvenile Diabetes and Scottish International Relief. Backed by Jack Vettriano, Judi Dench, Alan Rickman and Radio 1’s DJ Spoony, the event will again bring the best of European student designs from Paris’ ESMOD, Rome’s Design Institute and, on exceptional loan, Pierce Brosnan’s Die Another Day and Mel Gibson’s Braveheart costumes. The show has been heavily sponsored, most notably, by DHL.
