2018 was a fantastic year for fashionABLE, YEAR OF YOUTH, developing workshops with top industry fashion designers, with catwalk sessions with our partners Models of Diversity and culminating with a fashion show at The Scottish Parliament.
With support from so many people, we are able to bring our expertise as passionate event organisers to develop a new and exciting programme to fashion and working with young people through 2018 added a new and very exciting and meaningful dimension.
Our focus for all that we do with fashionABLE is to focus on Diversity, Inclusivity and with Integrity, so what does this mean.
Inclusivity - this means everyone, reflecting society. Fashion can be a fickle industry and does not represent the masses with modelling on the runway and within the fashion pages - but does not represent real people, you, me, everyone! So fashionABLE is about personality on the inside that then manifests to reflect the fashion being displayed, as you will see from our photo and film gallery.
Diversity - Our models age two to eighty two, good mobility, mobility challenged, from all ethnicities, passion in fashion is our motto and walking tall no matter your height.
Integrity - Fashion made with integrity; Upcycled, recycled, fair trade, ethically sourced, locally made/designed.
