DONT WALK Official Launch Event: Reviewed

The DONT WALK 2018 launch was a spectacular night. This year, the committee chose the Old Course for the event. Guests of the models and committee were invited along for dinner and a couple hundred more were invited to the afterparty in the ballroom. The whole night was very extravagant – ensembles of silk and leather fluttered in the light on the dance floor, and an abundance of wine and Janetta’s ice cream bars put a smile on each face. The dinner guests arrived and mingled at the bar before dinner was served.

Concrete Catwalk x The Speakeasy: Reviewed

To celebrate their third year, the St Andrews student fashion blog Concrete Catwalk transformed The Adamson into a 1920’s speakeasy for a night of themed cocktails, music and fashion. The 20’s atmosphere was created mostly due to the guests rather than from any excess of decoration. Other than generic party décor like confetti, taped to the bar were signs that read ‘gangster speakeasy’ and a themed cardboard cutout in the back provided a great photo op. Upon entering, you were so overwhelmed by girls in fur coats and pearls and boys in suits and tie pins that the minimal decoration was easily forgotten.

What to Wear: Starfields 2017

Notably St Andrews’ “last hurrah” for the summer before reality sets in and we all have to get to work, Starfields is a great opportunity to get down to some class house music and get one last use out of that Hawaiian shirt.  Put on by the committee of the St Andrews Charity Fashion Show, known affectionately as FS, it’s a combination of music festival and booze-fueled garden party with plenty of glitter to go around – but not quite Glasto or Burning Man. So: what on earth do you wear? If you’re struggling with outfit inspiration and you don’t want to resort to chucking on your gap-year trousers (you know the ones) and a crop top last minute, look no further. Here are a few ideas for what to wear to Starfields.

Concrete Catwalk: Darker Nights Reviewed

It might be a case of watching a little too much Gossip Girl in my library breaks, but in the last few weeks I have been itching for the opportunity for a proper dress up. To don a pair of heels and an outfit that would fit in at neither a ball or the union. An outfit I could lift straight from Vogue and walk around St Andrews without a hint of overdressed embarrassment. Concrete Catwalk’s ‘Darker Nights’ provided the ideal opportunity for just that. On entering The Adamson, I found myself surrounded with a crowd of fellow fashion obsessives who not only embraced my Manrepeller outfit, but complimented it. And all with a cocktail in hand.

Opening Ball: Reviewed

It’s safe to say that this year’s Opening Ball was a resounding success. As a second year student I returned with a certain degree of apprehension; unsure if the event would live up to my expectations having had such a fantastic time last year. Thankfully, I am glad to say that I was not disappointed!
