Catwalk… by Indie

We Love Fashion. We Love Charity.This February will see them together with return of the RAG Week fashion show. Shedding its bad image last year, it was sponsored by Moet & Chandon and had models sporting striking neon face paint alongside some amazing beats, the show is set to be bigger and better than before.

Keen to stay true to St Andrews, this year they have been adopted by the newest kid on the block – Fox & Bhut.  Their designs are loud, excentric and truly original, and let’s hope the show will be the same! The team have put together an amazing photo shoot that we have kindly been granted access too – checkout the few we have, and keep posted for updates on their facebook page.



Boutique Sneak Peak: Fox and Bhut by Elise

Earlier in the week we were in Fox and Bhut on Bell Street looking at some of the brands the shop carried and getting excited about seeing their pieces in St. Andrews fashion shows this spring. We mentioned that they carried a lot of jewelry, clothing, and accessories that were produced by charities and that they take ethical clothing manufacturing very seriously. Well, we’re all for the ethical so we thought we’d post a few photos of pieces that really really nice buyers at Fox&Bhut have ordered in for spring.

These are Christopher Raeburn ponchos made out of parachutes previously used by the military. They look like they could be a pretty edgy way to cut the wind down Market Street and a great way for the fashion adventurous to recycle. They’ll be a bit pricey, but certainly unique.

Also this spring, the Environmental Justice Foundation have invited designers to take part in a campaign for ethical fashion involving lots of organic cotton. Christian Lacroix, John Rocha, and Luella are only a few on the list of designers who are participating to create a line of limited edition t-shirts that all look great for layering. Fox&Bhut has ordered some in. We’ll be checking back.

The night will be Headlined by MR HUDSON one of this summer’s biggest artists. Supernova was one of the summer’s greatest sounds, he’s played at more festivals then any one person could camp at and his new song with Jay-Z is being tipped for big things and. We’re lucky enough to have him playing in our little town just days before he starts touring with Calvin Harris.
