Students from Royal Holloway, University of London will be holding a charity fashion show this week to raise money for a national eating disorder charity to mark Eating Disorders Awareness Week.
Rock Britannia will feature the latest clothes from leading brands such as Nike, America Apparel, Hunter and Beyond Retro in a spectacular show aimed at celebrating Britain in 2012 – the year that Britain takes centre stage for the Olympic Games. The event will also include contributions from Marie Claire, Look Magazine and Dove Spa.
All profits from the event, which will be held in the College’s Students’ Union at 7pm on 25-27 February, will be donated to the charity B-eat, which provides support and help to those suffering with eating disorders, their families and friends, and commits itself to educating others.
The organisers of the event explain that Rock Britannia has a concept based on pride and creativity, praising fashion as an inspiration and form of expression and individuality.
Gem Latimer, Director, said: “British fashion exemplifies self-expression and creativity at its very best. The show will captivate the excitement of fashion, and showcase music and dance alongside it that reflect the British culture. The show’s aesthetic and design is aimed to involve the audience and urge them to create or expand upon a style that is purely their own.”
Rock Britannia will be held at the Students’ Union at Royal Holloway, University of London on 25-27 February at 7pm. Tickets cost £7, Students £5.
