A high profile student fashion show finally got off the runway after its first flight was blown out by high winds.
The DON’T WALK fashion show featured designs by both established and up-and-coming names as couture hit the catwalk.
The annual show by St Andrews University students — given additional prestige when a young Kate Middleton modelled in it during her time in Fife — was cancelled during blustery weather in March.
Its venue was also changed from a marquee at Brownhills to the Bowhouse, by St Monans, for last night’s event.
Show executive director Maria Cecilia Coelho promised a stronger than ever performance.
She said: “After the uncontrollable circumstances of postponing DONT WALK 2019, it has brought the whole committee closer together.”
Creative director Theodora Chia said the theme, Inferno, had been unhindered by the postponement.
She said: “I’m happy to see that the strength of our committee lies in its resilience against unforeseeable circumstances.”
On March 2, the marquee was cleared unsafe as winds reaching 50 miles per hour blew through the area.
Organisers, who had been working on the show for several months, were determined the show would go on.
As well as providing a platform for young designers, grabbing the attention of international media, the event has raised more than £220,000 over the years.
This year’s beneficiaries are Families First and the Robin Hood Foundation.
The fashion show was launched in 2002 as a response to the September 11 terror attacks, which had happened months earlier.
It takes its title from New York’s DONT WALK pedestrian crossing signs.
Another student-run fashion show, St Andrews Charity Fashion Show FS2019, was held in February.
