RAG week for Imperial College had two meanings this weekend. Their annual student tin rattling ‘Raising And Giving’ campaign got fashionable, immersing itself in the rag trade to raise funds for the Paediatrics Department at St Mary’s Hospital with a charity fashion show.
The ‘Back to Fashion Future‘ theme showcased fashion trends from the 20th century but mainly centred on swimwear and lingerie fashion, hence students in their scanties and much opportunity for posing, pouting and throwing of shapes.
Looking past the bare flesh of our future scientists there was an inspired mix of Moulin Rouge, Baywatch and Home and Away interspersed with Victoriana, floaty wedding dresses, swinging sixties and Grease 50′s gear as well as a look into the future of fashion.
