Reflections

The 10th anniversary of the show, directed by Jonathan Canizales and Nicholas Egunjobi, was a great moment for LRFS and truly elevated the brand’s reputation across the city.

The Creative Vision

“In the infinite nature of time there are moments that are unavoidable, moments that we would replay 1,000 times over and others we would avoid at all costs. Taking inspiration from the internal journey that all humans embark on, LRFS18 considered humanity’s shared moments in time — moments that join us. The show created an experience of the infinite story of time from the genesis, the conflict, the resolution and the end. It broke the boundaries of normal fashion with immersive design and a completely redesigned stage. With 5 scenes, the show took the audience on a journey through time itself, in a show that was truly TIME.LESS.”

— Jonathan Canizales and Nicholas Egunjobi, Directors 2018

LRFS18 would like to thank our Gold Sponsor, Student High Street, and all those who donated. With your help LRFS18 was able to raise over £10,000 for Dementia UK and Leeds Mind.

My Time in LRFS18

“As a first timer in joining LRFS, I did not quite anticipate just how much work goes into the show, from promotion and marketing to sponsorship and production, nor did I anticipate to meet such a vast network of truly inspiring, determined and hard-working people. I have so much respect for each and every member of the fantastic, student-led committee, what we have achieved and, how hard they have each worked to bring together a remarkable, sold out show.

Sure, there has been a lot of stress beneath all the glamour, but I have learnt so much and had the opportunity to produce some really great work. Most of all, I have loved working with talented stylists, make-up artists and models to produce an array of creative imagery to promote the show. It has been invaluable to be granted that kind of creative control, lead shoots, and to see our work in magazines, on posters, and on the screens around campus. To see our work receive the praise and recognition it deserves is an unforgettable feeling.

LRFS is undoubtedly one of the greatest experiences of real life a student can have within a university environment, and the fast-paced environment and real time deadlines have greatly prepared me for future experiences in the real world.”
