Edinburgh Online Fashion Week is divided into four categories, which started with designer and high st reet, bout iques, independent designers and then graduate designers.
Each day three shows were filmed with no audience and plain background, so the focus was just on the clothing. The location used was the Quatermile One, perfect with the metal like floors and modern feel. The hair was beautifully put together by Dickson Reid Hairdressing, make-up was stunning and funky by Lauren Gollen Make-Up, styling was trendy and well put together by Laura Blyth creative styling and The Garment district. The vibe from backstage was energetic and hardworking, especially the dressers with their full dedication into organizing the outfits for each model with the styling team.

How come a high school girl in the Emirates chooses to spend her vacation with a humanitarian association instead of having fun with friends? What makes Marion, 16 years old, rush towards the most poor and destitute? How did she settle on joining Madagascar last summer to help the street children?
During the summer it welcomes young volunteers who are ready to serve the most in need. This is how. Marion found herself in Antsirabe, second largest city in Madagascar with a population of over people, that keeps constantly growing because of the rural exodus. The average salary there is dhs a month, which represents less than 2,50 dhs per member of a family of 7 this corresponds to the local average. This leads to a situation of poverty where the education of children is neglected.
At the beginning of their stay in Madagascar the young French volunteers are granted a few days to adapt and enjoy a small vacation. On the program: Excursion to Mangily in the southeast of the Island and the discovery of the Isalo National Park to get to meet the lemurs, big mascots of the country.

They have two missions: On the one hand rebuild the facade of a school and repair 4 classrooms, on the other go to meet the street children.
The people received by the association range between 12 and 19 years of age. And because they have not been granted a proper education, they have fallen way behind in their studies.

The cool air of the evening already began to blow as we met up, all wrapped up in our scarfs, with the young Malagasy members of the association, who were all covered up in their sweaters.
Huddled together, we walked down the dark roads of Antsirabe until we reached a school playground.
There, French songs and Malagasy dances, fits of laughter and complicity filled the air around the bonfire, where the spirit of joy reigned. At one point, a young Malagasy boy approached me, he was wearing bright red Doc Martens and his name was Tentel. We danced together and he tied a bracelet around my wrist. Suddenly, my friend Georgette called me. She was the one who welcomed me and introduced me to the Malagasies. I went to her, surprised by her sudden affection and she took me in her arms and gave me a bracelet of her own.
