Fashion Show : Vox by ReMode

A sparkling evening of sustainable fashion.

Our annual fashion shows are an opportunity to share the work we have been doing; the clothes we have made, the new skills learned and our increased understanding of climate change. 

The theme for this year’s show is the voice – used to sing, shout and pass on information.  It’s also the symbolic voice of youth and protest to bring about change and to make the world a better place. 

Saturday 23rd March 7pm  Students Union Building, Storie Street, Paisley
