Fashionistas ‘flaunt it’

first_imgThe prestigious halo of academia which surrounds Oxford means that it is not often described as the central hub of student style and innovation. On 14 May, however, a group of the forward-thinking members of this university will be presenting a fashion show of student-designed clothing and lingerie at the Oxford Union, and encouraging the fashion world to rethink this hackneyed attitude. Everyone enjoys the annual University fashion show, and this year will certainly be no exception, but at this inaugural event the emphasis will be on something new, something fresh; something a little bit daring. The show is being organised by a company called UFO, or ‘Unique Fashionable Objects’ – a name which certainly conjures up some lively, zany images. And so it should, because the company is a product of the most ambitious of Oxford societies: the Oxford Entrepreneurs. So what exactly can the audience expect on the night of 14 May? There will be three main ingredients: firstly, the artists. The designers are an international group of students making their debut at this show. Their aim is to create beautiful and exotic clothes, fusing old and new ideas, delicate and abrasive materials, gentle and harsh silhouettes; mixing together a kaleidoscope of colours. Secondly, there are the muses, a selection of Oxford’s most beautiful student models. Beware, however, of seeing them merely as clothes-horses. These models have been chosen to reflect and enhance the tone of each individual collection. Finally, the marquee after-party will provide an opportunity to bring a touch of personal glamour to the evening, while enjoying complimentary Cobra beer and General Bilimori wines to summer sounds mixed by guest DJs. It is a much repeated adage that beauty and brains create the most exquisite cocktail imaginable in man: why not come and enjoy this heady sensation for yourself?
