DCU Style Society Fashion Show a huge success

Hundreds of people showed their support for this year's DCU Style Society Fashion Show.

The DCU Style Society was established in 2005, and its annual fashion show has become a major event in the calender of DCU campus life.

This year’s event took place in The Helix, on Wednesday, February 19th.

The DCU Fashion show is run by DCU’s Style Society every year and is the largest student run event in the country. From the styling to the clothing, the show relies on complete student involvement.

The theme of this year’s Fashion Show was ‘The Zodiac’ with the atmosphere and clothing inspired by the moon and the stars.

Every year, the show includes a well-known host with social media influencer James Kavanagh and radio DJ Tara Stewart involved in previous years. This year’s event was no different as it was presented by popular sustainable fashion blogger, Keelin Moncrieff.

High street brands such as Collar and Cuff, Magee, Oasis, Pennys, River Island and Topshop were involved in the show, with the majority of clothing coming from smaller vintage stores and independent designers with Dublin Vintage Factory, Nine Crows, Retro Vintage, Charlottes Love, Rebirth of cool, Heartbreak Social Club, Diamond Pieces, Tola Vintage, Nuage, Faction, Tango and Folkster all taking part.

The interval saw a number of talented young designers showcase their work before a panel of judges as part of a Style Society event known as DCU Project Young Designer (PYD). PYD gives design students an opportunity to sell their clothing in independent stores.

DCU’s Style Society was established in 2005 by now television presenter, Laura Whitmore. Whilst at DCU, Laura studied Journalism and has gone on to have a very successful career, and is currently presenting a weekly radio show with the BBC, as well as hit reality series ‘Love Island’ for ITV2.
