About

Welcome to Leeds RAG Fashion Show! For the past 10 years, Leeds RAG Fashion Show (LRFS) has been a completely student-led charity event, bringing together students from all the universities across Leeds. In 2018, the show’s 10th anniversary raised over £10,000 for Leeds Mind and Dementia UK, with a theme dedicated to educating on the importance of mental health wellbeing. LRFS is one of the most anticipated events for our generation in Leeds, and this year our team is dedicated to excel expectations yet again.

The Past

The Past

From 2008, LRFS has been an unparalleled success in the Leeds University Union Calendar, winning ‘Event of the Year’ numerous times since it began 10 years ago. LRFS is the biggest RAG (Raising-And-Giving) event and one of the most anticipated University events of the year, held in high esteem by the Leeds business and student community alike.

Every year LRFS introduces a new and exciting theme, meaning that no two shows are ever the same. Some of the past themes include Samsara (2017) which turned the elements of the earth into clothing, Through the Looking Glass (2015), which transported the audience into a fairytale world and Wanderlust (2014), a show that brought together the features from different world environments and made them the centerpiece of the fashion show.

Every year LRFS brings together a diverse group of glamorous models who work tirelessly to give sleek and professional performances, in order to showcase the beautiful pieces donated by both national and international designers. Last year’s wonderfully diverse show comprised of 100 models.

Additionally, we are proud to announce that LRFS18’s show TIME.LESS has been nominated for two NaSFA awards. The categories we have been nominated in are ‘Best Event’ and ‘Collaboration of the Year’. With a strong past, confirmed by the prestige of these awards, we have a solid foundation on which to build.

The Future

The Future

This year, LRFS takes another leap forward. Aiming to be more inclusive and diverse than ever. Anyone and everyone is welcome to take part. LRFS19 is to be headed up by a team of students whose studies span four universities and whose disciplines and degrees range from Chemical Engineering, Business, English and, of course, Fashion related degrees. Beyond our committee, our models are chosen to reflect the complete range of people who study in Leeds and all across the country.

This year our charities are Behind Closed Doors and Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund. We intend to break LRFS records with the amount we raise for them. However, we cannot do this without help. If you’d like to sponsor our event please head to the sponsorship page.

Following on from 2018, our theme (which will be revealed in due course) will connect the past and present. Our aim is to take the audience on an immersive adventure with our show all in the name of charity. 2019’s show will play host to the talents of the students who live and study in Leeds. The show will encompass fashion, music, art, performance, business skills and fashion.

We hope you agree that the future of Leeds RAG Fashion Show looks bright!
