All dresses are provided by Alora – a dressmaking service run by students that sells hand-made, bespoke gowns, all for the cost of the high street. The profits from the project fund a tailoring school on the outskirts of Hanoi, Vietnam, where disabled and disadvantaged women gain the skills to earn a comfortable living.

The next fitting is at The Union on Friday 27th January. Click here for more information or email [email protected] with any questions, or to book an appointment.
