Purple Reign hosts a fashion show
Let’s begin with explaining what ‘Purple Reign‘ is.
Purple Reign is a series of purple events that celebrate the students union while incorporating the purple identity we have, hence the name. It all began with the sabbatical officers from 16/17 who wanted to create a series of purple themed events to build a student community. The project started taking form in January and on the 2nd of February the first late night student event took place for Refreshers. But, this post it going to talk about the second late night student event, the fashion show.
The fashion show
Now before the doors could open, models, designers, photographers and many volunteers were preparing for the night ahead. Models were getting their hair and makeup done while designers were making the final touches. Volunteers were busy bee’s, putting up the balloon arch, the popcorn machine and the raffle prizes, as the tech team was testing the lighting and music.
At 6pm the doors opened, welcoming students to the very first Purple Reign’s fashion show. The host welcomed everyone to the event and began the show. It was a mixture of acts and designers to keep the audience entertained throughout. On the runway this evening was 6 designers majority presenting an urban street wear collection. All designers varied in price but offered exclusive deals on the night. It’s evident that all brands were loved by the audience and many sold out as nearly all sold out on the night. In between the designers were around 4 performers entertaining the audience with unique raps, songs and dance performances. The fashion show lead to an after party for all to get to see the outfits close up, network and socialise.
“The atmosphere was lively and the student designers had a great opportunity to showcase their talent.”
