On Friday March 31st members of the UL Environmental Society organised the Ecouture Fashion Show, promoting second hand clothing as an attractive and sustainable shopping option to the general UL public.

Exam hall EG-010 was transformed for the event as chairs and lighting were rearranged to form a glitzy catwalk. Following a welcome and overview by society member and event co-ordinator, Carmen Vitour, fashion blogger Aoife McNamara of thatindieirishblog.com gave a talk about ‘fast fashion’ the second most polluting industry in the world after fossil fuels, as part of the preamble of the show to come.

Dozens of selections under various themes were on show by the team of models. Michael Mulhall (UL Enviro Soc) was on mic duties as announcer, welcoming each model to the catwalk and describing the break down of each selected piece. Society members Ariadne Bazaldua, Laura O Connor and Ruhi Anand worked behind the scenes helping Carmen co-ordinate the event and ensure an impeccable running order.

This event, which formed the opening event of the National Forum of Environmental Societies later in the day, was a fantastic success with a great turn out. The event not only raised lots of publicity but many of items displayed were in turn sold at the end of the show with profits returning to the local charity stores, Enable Ireland, The Edge Clothing Limerick and Lucky Lane Limerick who provided the clothing.
