This society has seen a dramatic increase in membership after having used the time at the beginning of term to get their name out on campus. They had a wonderfully decorated stall at the clubs and societies fair and kept everyone fed with free popcorn! Later in the week they surprised us all with a flash catwalk outside the union. The efforts of the dedicated committee have led to membership increasing five-fold.
Once term had begun they started running their weekly illustration and sewing classes which have had an amazing turnout! Members have loved the opportunity to learn something new and have fun! The response from members has been fabulous, who have commented on how welcoming and energetic the society is.
Collaboration with other societies and NUSU groups has been an important aspect of Fashion Society’s activities. The society has run Give It A Go sessions for all students and recently set up a Go Volunteer project- they are using their skills to benefit people outside of the society, both students and Newcastle citizens.
They are the winners of £100 which can be spent on anything to help the society improve further.
Well done for a great start to the year and keep up the good work!
