Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show is pleased to announce that it is returning for its ninth year to raise money for Cancer Support Scotland and The Sandpiper Trust.

Last year they were successful in raising £10,280 for Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) and hope to do even better this year.

This year’s show begins with a new theme of ‘duality’, a concept that seems particularly pertinent in the context of Edinburgh as it is one that it not only ever-present in the realms of fashion but has been identified as an inherent characteristic of Scottish culture.

The fashion team for ECFS2013 is already sharing its ideas on their blog ‘BloggEd’ and will be updating with inspirations for the final catwalk show.

ECFS prides itself on being the most successful student run, charity fashion show in Europe and has been thrilled to have included designers such as Nicole Fahri, Vivienne Westwood, Mark Fast, Issa, Calvin Klein Menswear and Luella in past shows, as well as up-and-coming local student talent.

In the show’s eight year history it has raised over a quarter of a million pounds for charities which have also included Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Poppyscotland and Marie Curie.

ECFS 2013 will be held at The Assembly Rooms, George Street, on 16 March 2013.
