It is once again that busy time of the year where reading lists, essays, crew-dates, sport training, music practices and evening events are piling up on top of the other. Michaelmas is, for this very reason, one of the most challenging but undoubtedly the most animated term of the entire year. Certainly, Oxford Fashion Week adds a little added edge of excitement to the term; and this year it is going to be even bigger and better than ever before.
Oxford Fashion Studio have hosted Oxford Fashion Week since 2009 and some of the creative and artistic venues have included the Exam-Schools building and the Natural History Museum. The opening and closing parties have taken place at some of Oxford’s trendiest nightlife hotspots such as the Varsity Bar and Oxford Castle. Showcasing designs from fashion graduates and cutting edge artists, the week of events range from high concept to haute couture. Just an example of designers featured at previous Oxford Fashion Weeks, include Matthew Williamson, Alexander McQueen and Valentin Yudashkin.
This year, from the 26th of October to the 31st, there will be runway events showing at yet again, another new and highly-original venue; the Sheldonian Theatre. Model castings are taking place on Saturday 17th October at the Varsity Club; a popular opportunity that many students at Oxford have taken and continue to take advantage of.
Tickets are now on sale online and are fast selling out. We, at Cherwell Fashion, cannot wait, and hope that all of you will be able to make it along as well!
