Stop Calling Me Fashionable

I like the way I dress. It’s taken a while to find my groove, but recently, I really think I’ve hit the head on the nail to my own personal style. It’s been an evolution, for sure. But the equation of multiple places lived, people met, and fashion admired, has finally produced a closet of specifically curated items of clothing—items that, as unoriginal as it sounds, reflect who I am as a person—more so, as an observer of the world.

FS 2018: A Fractured Evolution

Fracture.

This was theme that the Committee carefully selected and interpreted throughout the whole night, starting with the ‘fractured’ catwalk, which gave the audience a better view of the clothes, and the LED screens that gave an interactive and more powerful impact.

Closet Confidential: Jane Lau

We live in a fashionable town. The streets are catwalks, the library is a fashion exhibit, and a night out is equivalent to a red-carpet. People care about how they dress here, for better or for worse. Instead of trying to fight this notion that having an interested in fashion is shallow or subversive, I am curious about why people dress the way they do.

DONT WALK LAUNCH PARTY

As our semester is creeping towards its close, we students are lucky if we find the opportunity to really let loose and enjoy a night of drinks, dancing, and impeccable fashion. A night one takes away from deadlines should be heavily rewarded and should live up to all expectations so as to keep us satisfied for another week's worth of essays. Fortunately for us, this is exactly what DONT WALK brought to the table with their DONT WALK launch party.

Preview: DONT WALK x BPM Music Collective Opening

As the remaining summer days dwindle down and a new academic year peaks its head around the corner, another Freshers’ Week promises to take the by Bubble by storm, ready to welcome (and possibly destroy) returning and incoming students. Considered a kind of “rite of passage”, this week offers the best opportunity for all student-led societies, clubs and organisations to increase their visibility across campus and attract a fresh crop of members.

Review: Label, "Ebb & Flow"

Amidst the St Andrews Fashion Show Scene, Label’s most recent production ‘Ebb and Flow’ was a celebration of water, gender, fluidity and motion. The second exhibition of a series of four, its new location in Beacon Bar created an intimacy marking the performance apart from the other fashion shows featured in St Andrews. Ebb and Flow proved itself to be not just a show for observance, but simultaneously an experience of self discovery in being able to watch the different displays of personality from each of the models.

DONT WALK 2017 REVIEW: FASHION

You’ve heard it all before - how our small university is saturated with artistic ability, our student body put on events that draw international interest and the Fife coast fashion season is simply the champagne-sprinkled fusing of this collective talent and ambition. DONT WALK will annually draw an excess of superlatives in reviews but as I reflect on the 2017 show I type one hand on the keys and another crossing my heart to promise this year’s event defies all praise.

Trump vs. the Tailored Pantsuit

The recent transition of power in the United States has left a trail of broken-hearted Americans scrambling to make sense of the world around them. To cement the dark reign in stone, Donald Trump’s administration’s recent whirlwind of disappointing and discriminating executive orders shocked and shook the world, questioning our morality and empathy.

The Cursed Outfit

"The first night I wore my favorite black playsuit on a night out, I had a drunken emotional breakdown, failed to make it past pre-drinks, and for some reason decided it wise to drink tequila straight out of the bottle. The second time I wore it, I got so drunk that I ended up vomiting more than I ever even thought possible. The third time, I had a mental breakdown prompted by losing all of my friends in a club in a foreign city."

Born in the Wrong Decade

"Have you ever been told you were born in the wrong decade? Personally, I believe I’ve heard this phrase no less than thirty or so times in my life. People say I belong in the 1920s, or the 50s, or the 60s. This conclusion is neither based on my vocabulary nor my mannerisms, but the basis instead lies in one thing: my wardrobe."

Faustine Steinmetz: A Master of Time Amidst AW16

"It’s a celebration of modernity whilst simultaneously indulging in nostalgia. It’s art and creativity. A scream of innovation and of human expression paradoxically amplified through the parade of those silenced, London Fashion Week is a controversy that every year both bewitches and baffles."

LABEL Review: The Fashion Show St. Andrews Needed

"On Thursday night I had the privilege to attend the LABEL Fashion Show representing ST.ART Magazine as Fashion Editor to review the show. I previously worked with LABEL on a collaborative photo shoot where I was able to see a preview of the clothes and the models working along side the committee members. The experience was great, the models and members were a joy to work with and the clothes truly expressive, I could not wait to see what the show had in store."
