We are very grateful to University College London’s MODO Fashion Society, whose 2017 Fashion Show was hosted in aid of FAD Fashion Futures.
The society represents fashion enthusiasts around London and specialises in fashion design, modelling, event production and PR. We spoke to Mariko Siig, Head of Production at MODO. “Fashion is important to us all and brings us together as students even though we study different things”
Every year MODO host a fashion show showcasing London’s up and coming designer and model talent, where all the proceeds are given to charity. In 2017 the chosen charity was FAD. “In previous years it’s always been random charities, but this year we decided to support a fashion charity working with young people,” says Mariko.
Mariko is a final year Business and IT student who would love to work in the fashion industry. “The show went really well, it was a packed night. The show is an opportunity to showcase students’ work, to have fun and raise money for charity”
“We had a lot of support from FAD. Maria was so lovely, she helped me a lot along the way, and introduced me to people. It’s the most collaborative we’ve been with a charity so far. Maria introduced me to the production team at Fashion Scout where I did work experience – it helped me a lot in the production of the MODO Show”
MODO Show raised money through selling tickets and we are very grateful to them for raising £1,000 for FAD Fashion Futures.
