St Andrews Charity Fashion Show
London Fashion Week, and in-particular MENSWEAR day are disappearing into our past as we move on to the next fashion event. It’s the time of year when everyone sets their trends for the coming year, so February and the beginning of March is always pretty crazy. Yet one small fashion show, when compared to the other titans, seems to hold a little bit of press above all others. Yes it was at the St Andrews Charity Fashion Show in 2002 that when a slightly more hairy (we like to think) Prince William, had front row seats to see who is now the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, as she strolled down the catwalk.
Fast forward to 2012 and the show is still going strong, and we shall be on hand this weekend to take a look at all it’s goodness, and we shall also be there to help one hopeful on their way to becoming the next big team. Average Joes Blog shall be helping judge the Alfa Romeo Young Designer Award on behalf of the St Andrews Charity Fashion Show.
This year’s five finalists, Sean McGirr, Oliver Doherty, Emma Baldwin, Charlotte Stowe and Janine Clark, will battle it out to not only be crowned the 2012 Alfa Romeo Young Designer but £1,000 in prize money and funding to produce an item of clothing for chosen charity The Muir Maxwell Trust, which offers support to children with severe epilepsy.
The public will also play an important part in deciding who should win and can vote online at www.facebook.com/alfaromeouk and stand a chance at winning a weekend break for two. Check out the designs below and get over to Facebook to let us know what you think.
