Warwick’s LINE Fashion Society celebrates first birthday
They’re all about looking good, for a good cause
The preconception often is that fashion societies are all about wannabe models, aspiring designers and trips to London Fashion Week.
But, LINE, an independent Fashion and Arts Society, is not your average fashion group. In fact, they are a team of charitable fashionistas, raising money from their projects for UNICEF on campus.
They’ve recently celebrated their one year anniversary, already having pulled off monthly photo shoots and numerous social events.
President and Vice-President, Tala and Sophie, told The Tab: “We wanted our society to stand for a cause, and felt Warwick needed something targeting different aspects of the fashion world, and therefore reaching out to a whole new audience.”
And that is exactly what they have done, and hope to continue doing.
As well as monthly photo shoots and social events (MouLINE Rouge Fashion Show, their White Party, and much more), LINE also organises corporate events, inviting speakers from the fashion industry to give talks to students who are interested in the field of fashion.
A notable achievement was the LVMH & Dior Conference, in February 2014.
And on top of all the show stopping events, they also have The Underlined Blog, managed by a team of creative writers.
The Blog covers everything: food and drink, arts and culture as well as health and beauty.
Tala and Sophie added: “What makes us different is that we do not limit ourselves to fashion.
“Our biggest highlight was having over 1,000 people interested in our Facebook page and our activities.
“It may sound like a flat highlight, but having just started recently, this proved how much we have achieved. We never in a million years imagined it would grow at this rate.”
And of course, LINE celebrated their first anniversary in a truly fashionable style, with an Anniversary Cocktail Soiree.
Having raised over £2,000 for UNICEF on Campus, they hope to continue this success. As LINE continues to expand with multiple collaborations, such as with Warwick Entrepreneurs, it appears that this momentum will continue.
“We are planning to become even bigger and better so that one day LINE will be recognised as a label. A label not just for the arts, fashion and business, but also for greater causes.”
There are bigger and better things yet to come. Watch out for LINE.
