This year’s SITARA* fashion show promised to be bigger and better than ever, and it definitely delivered. I had no idea what to expect as I arrived at the marquee at Station Park on the grounds of the Madras Rugby pitches. I was told repeatedly that SITARA* was very different to the other St Andrews fashion shows—in its artistry, in its aims, in the crowd it attracted and in the overall character of the night. Having never been to any other St Andrews fashion show, I came with an open mind, excited to see what all of this year’s hype had been about.
Hosted and organized by the Dance Society, Saturday night’s Oz Ball did not fail to impress. I was not quite sure what to expect as I donned my sea-green dress and gold heels and made my way to Younger Hall—I have had very little involvement with Dance Soc, aside from knowing a few people on the dance teams. However, as I treated myself to a heaping cone of free Janettas and set off to explore the venue, I quickly realized that the Dance Soc members are event-organizing veterans, and know exactly what makes a good time.
