This year’s first winners of the Society of the Month, chosen by Activities Officer Rebecca Bainbridge, is the Fashion Society following an exceptional month of activities and campaigns over the course of October.
The society began their hard work early on in the year, giving out popcorn and getting themselves noticed at the clubs and societies fair before term had even began, leading to a significant increase in membership. Entertaining campus, they later organised a flash catwalk to pop up outside the Students’ Union to show off their members’ superb confidence and style.
Not only have the society been showing off their ability to pull off stunning and engaging fashion shows with consummate ease, but they have also been hard at work teaching their members fun and practical skills through highly attended illustration and sewing classes. The weekly classes have only gone to further prove how welcoming and innovative the society has been this month.
While the Fashion Society have shown off their organisational, warm and inventive side to earn the award, they have also had some exceptional collaborations throughout October. The society teamed up with Give It A Go to run sessions for students through NUSU, while they have also been setting up a Go Volunteer project to benefit both students and the general population outside of the society.
The society has gone from strength to strength, and this is reflected in a membership which has increased fivefold since September.
