As Freshers Week drew to a close, lectures were about to begin and deadlines became an imminent threat, VS and Sitara brought St Andrews a preview of the collaboration they will be undertaking this upcoming year. Launching their collaborative series and supporting their respective impending fashion shows, the geniuses behind both collectives fused their ‘Urban and Asian themes’ and identities to bring students a unique concept.
The event featured DJs such as local gem Maria Dolotina and up-and-coming star Nick Gelos, who kept the night alive with their incredible mixes. Shisha flowed freely outside on The Vic’s scenic terrace, offering an alternative and unprecedented twist to a Tuesday night out. Members of both committees mingled, representing the themes of Asian artistry and urban streetwear as well as offering a holistic experience for event-goers.
At only £5 (or £60 for a 6-person sisha table), VS and Sitara offered an affordable night of entertainment without breaking student’s bank balances and sending them spiralling into their overdrafts. The value for money was incredible, as the shisha table costs worked out to only £10 per person for free-flowing shisha all night long.
The only snag in the night was that it coincided with a Szentek event and the town’s partying population was split in half. In the future, there hopefully won’t be any more clashes and more people can enjoy the distinct events hosted by VS and Sitara.
Undoubtedly, students should look out for future VS and Sitara events as acts of synergy which will enhance the urban and Asian scene and bring something fresh and new to the town. In particular, look out for the annual Sitara fashion show and VS’ urban fashion show later this year. Model auditions will also be taking place in the coming weeks for catwalk enthusiasts to try their hand at.
