Body confidence takes centre stage at Label 2018

Last Friday in the Rufflets Hotel just outside of St Andrews a select few were privy to one of the most beautiful and iconic fashion shows that St Andrews has to offer. For those who don’t know, Label is one of the few events in St Andrews where lumps, bumps and *gasp* even an unwaxed bikini line can be...

Sitara* 2018: ‘An Unforgettable Night’

Sitara* promised St Andrews an unforgettable night. With their preview shows, cocktail nights and extensive pre-show coverage, it was hard not to expect the best. They certainly delivered. They delivered in a way which was unusual: it is not an event which focuses directly on one aspect of fashion, nor a particular fashion aesthetic (although the organisers have termed...

ELAGA 2018: A Lesson for St Andrews

Life is full of disappointments, something that I know all too well. From a young age I was led to believe that Bombay Sapphire, the renowned gin brand, was as rich a blue as the vessel that contained it. Years later I would hanker to the bar with my ‘driver’s license’, registered in a country I’d never been to,...

POLO 2018: Back and Bigger Than Ever

This week I got the chance to sit down with the St Andrews Polo committee, in preparation for the big event on Saturday 21 April, which is coming up quickly. This year everyone’s favourite outdoor event on the St Andrews Calendar is going to be bigger and better than ever with larger sponsors, and more attendees than ever before....

When and Where? How to avoid ‘Fear of Missing Out’

What with the term starting to dwindle off many may be mistaken in thinking that the social calendar is at a standstill. Far from it: this half of term is one of the most active socially with fresh new events mingling with old time favourites. Now with a lot of these events having limited ticket sales frequently you have...

Dancers Among Us: A Performance for the Performers

This past Thursday night, the Blue Angels dance team members and their friends and family crowded into the Byre theatre plaza where dancers sold raffle tickets and friends chat-ted – the question, ‘so do you know anyone in the show?’ coming up more than once. Migrating into the theatre itself, the audience filled about two thirds of the seats and...

Bacchanalia Reimagined thaws deadline blues

The sight of slightly inebriated revellers in full black tie battling through the cold is not unfamiliar in St Andrews. However, this time they were not heading to Kinkell Byre or Lower College Lawn, instead they were heading to a more unusual location, Younger Hall, for a night of ‘drunken revelry and ritual madness’ that was Bacchanalia. What was immediately...

HeforShe: raising the game in the fight for gender equality

This week saw the launching of a new and interesting society called HeforShe. Made famous by Emma Watson, this movement has been growing more and more in the UK and, unsurprisingly, HeforShe has finally reached our small corner of Scotland. The creative work that has gone into the event is apparent as soon as you walk into the door. Held...

Catwalk 2018: a great night for a greater cause

Last Saturday the long awaited Catwalk Fashion Show came to 601, bringing with it a plethora of diverse fashion brands as well as support for great causes. The most charitable of fashion shows, revelers could be happy knowing that 100% of the money raised went towards The Scottish Refugee Council, Save the Children and Families First, and what’s more...

Eden brings originality to The Vic

Like many things in St Andrews ‘The Vic’ seems to act in complete juxtaposition to the outside world. That is to say that ‘The Vic’ summons up images of cigarette and ale marinated men in their late forties, a Guy Ritchie-esque pub where a look in the toilets may leave you without a sense of smell, and a stroll...
