Meet DON’T WALK, the Largest Student-Run Fashion Show in the U.K.


Featuring fashion houses such as Raf Simons and Chanel, the impressive student-run organization DON’T WALK, is the first of its kind by utilizing fashion for a good cause. Founded in Scotland’s St. Andrews University, the organization began after 9/11, to emphasize not „walking past“ problems in society.

In their ambitious work, the organization holds an annual fashion show every year, this year featuring six young and upcoming designers, with proceeds going towards the non-profits Impact Arts and the Domestic Violence Project.

This year, DON’T WALK’s fashion show, “Crystal Liturgy” is dedicated to “bringing together an army of martyrs, DON’T WALK 22 presents a whimsical and confessional reflection into our humanity.” The show stands as a launch for the organization’s larger event happening in March 2022 with even more designers and attendees.

The two non-profits supported by the event are dedicated to community and social change. Impact Arts is an organization that uses art therapy and practice for children and seniors to engage in the arts, whilst promoting awareness of environmental issues and social discrepancies. The Domestic Violence Project is a project from the Urban Justice Center to aid survivors in legal services, advocacy, and community education.

Held just outside of the university town in St. Andrews, Scotland, the fashion show will highlight six rising designers in the fashion world: Tighe Mearns Smith, Friederike, Carolina Leontina, Maddy Goddard, and more with 23 models part of the show to display 40 looks across the designers. With over 250 guests in attendance following an indulgent “ethereal opulence” dress code. Of course, there always has to be an after party. DON’T WALK’s expanded after party to 400 guests will immediately follow the show to wrap the university’s most fashionable night.

The DON’T WALK fashion show will be held on November 10 in St. Andrews, Scotland.
