Nearly three decades later

and the St Andrews Charity Fashion Show (FS) continues to initiate and expand on current issues within society through our events and original art. Indeed, since its inception, FS has grown in size, reach and grandeur in order to fundamentally affect change throughout our community.  

Already surrounded by history in the town of St Andrews, FS aims to leave a legacy of its own amongst the student body, the town, and around the world. With a student population of over 10,000 from 140+ nationalities, the FS committee presents a diverse collective of innovative and creative minds determined to share narratives dealing with current societal issues. The St Andrews Charity Fashion show began as a creative outlet for St Andrews students to voice their beliefs through the medium of fashion. Currently in its twenty-seventh year, FS has established its own brand in the fashion world, and is proud to be one of the largest, and the most successful student-run organisation in the UK. With such growth comes a larger influence both near and far to St Andrews, allowing our organisation to help both key British charities along ambitious and young and British designers alike.

Driven by the core mission of our organisation, philanthropy, each year our committee creates two flagship events: Starfields (our music festival) and FS (the titular, main event). Furthermore, each year we work hard to renew our interaction with the students of St Andrews, and uphold our good-standing town-and-gown relations. From these events, we aim to make a difference and meet the goals of our chosen charity. FS facilitates a collaboration between fashion, charity, and history upon which emerging designers gain recognition, established brands become staples amongst students, and real change is brought to those in need. With the support and involvement of the student body and further afield, we aim to raise awareness and funds for our chosen charitable partner. Each year, we are dedicated to collaborating with a charity that is capable of fostering an intertwinement with our student community, so that we can maximise the reach of our charitable efforts.

DIRECTOR'S NOTE

 
 
 
 

Welcome to FS The St Andrews Charity Fashion Show (FS) is the largest and most successful student run fashion show in the UK. Based in St Andrews, Scotland, FS facilitates a collaboration between fashion, charity, and innovation. We provide a platform for young designers to get recognised, awareness to be raised for charity, and for the students of the University to express their creative side.

This year, we have partnered with SocialBite, an ambitious Scottish charity dedicated to ending homelessness in the country, and raising awareness for the struggles so many people go through. As we embark on our 27th year, we are confident this year’s FS can surpass what we have previously achieved. Through the work of our committee, with assistance from sponsors and supporters, we can ensure FS stays true to its roots of supporting the student body and the wider community as a whole, whilst continuing to push the limits of what is achievable by a group of students.

We look forward to welcoming you to this new year for FS, and hope it proves to be rewarding and successful for all involved.
