Save The Date: Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show

The Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show, UK's largest student-run fashion show and one of the most successful in Europe will be holding a two night event on the 18th and 19th of March 2011 at the Mansfield Traquair in support of Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

The first evening invites over 500 of Edinburgh’s fashion conscious students milling around our catwalk clutching specially designed cocktails from some of Edinburgh’s coolest bars. The second evening will be a black tie affair with a beautiful three course meal, art exhibition, goody bags and an exciting auction which in the past has featured pieces such as Hugh Laurie’s cane and Sting’s guitar.

The London event named FTBC on the QT was a huge success and they hope to emulate this in Edinburgh with the ECFS Launch Party that is going to take place on 2nd March 2011 at The Caves. The mix of music, models and glamour promise to make this a memorable launch to ECFS 2011.

The Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show has been hailed as ‘one of the biggest events in the society calendar’ by The List and this year will not disappoint as it hosts a series of exciting events from the hot music event, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer UK music event to the show itself.

Fergus Crook the show’s Creative Director welcomes you to the islands, ‘strange, wild, wonderful, diverse, and full of beautiful and fierce creatures’. The concept for this year’s Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show he states came from an idea to explore and develop the event’s creative possibilities. The notion of [d]evolution and the emphasis of origins has been the inspiration for a raw, stripped back series of photo shoots and will be evident in the show.

ECFS has always displayed the works of exciting designers and ECFS 2011 will not disappoint by show casing up and coming designers alongside established high fashion brands. In the past designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jaeger and Issa.
