Organisers of the Northern Youth Fashion Show, which will be held on January 29, will release the final batch of student tickets on Monday (Jan 18).
The show, which takes place at the University of York’s Central Hall, will showcase the designs of student’s from across the UK in front of Anna Wintour, the Editor-in Chief of American Vogue and Artistic Director of Conde Nast, who will be attending the event.
“We’ve been so pleased by the interest in the show so far,” said Ellie Wintour, one of the show’s organisers.
“The student tickets in particular have been in really high demand. The last batch sold out in ten minutes and we think these ones will go even faster.
“The show look like it’s going to be a fantastic evening and it will support some really worthwhile causes too. This really is the last chance for students to bag cheaper tickets.”
Proceeds from the event will be split between Refugee Action York, which helps to integrate refugees into the local area, and the Xavier Project, which delivers mentoring schemes, offers job opportunities and runs schools for refugees across the world.
Along with the fashion show the evening will also include live performances from 17-year-old, folk singer, Billie Marten from North Yorkshire and Friendly Fires and Metronomy, who have worked together for the first time to create a piece of music especially for the show.
The event will also include a Q & A session with Ms. Wintour led by Katharine Viner, Editor-in-Chief of The Guardian News & Media and a champagne reception.
Student tickets are priced at £15 per person and are available from http://www.yusu.org/tickets.
Full priced tickets to the event, which is being sponsored by a number of well-known organisations including train company Grand Central, makeup brand Bobbi Brown, Yorkshire Living Magazine and hair brand Milkshake, are £30 per person.
