Meet Students In The UK Starting A New Trend On Campus: Fighting Hunger
Designers, catwalk and playlist? Check, check and check. A team of students at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom dreamed up a creative way to turn the spotlight on hunger on their campus: a fashion show. With a theme of “Where the East Meets the West,” the students designed the fashion show to forge connections between the East and the West using fashion and music – and to show that hunger knows no boundaries. Ismini Petrides, a student at the University of Bath and one of the event’s organisers, gives her behind-the-scenes take on what goes into making a campus event on hunger really shine.
The second annual Art Fashion Show in support of the World Food Programme (WFP) took place on 22 March at the University of Bath. Hosted by the Model United Nations Society, the event made its debut in 2011, raising funds for WFP’s work in Latin America. After last year’s success, we decided to take the show to a whole new level.
