Natasha Franks previews Catwalk’s model auditions, which will be held Saturday 3 October from 12-6pm in the Beacon Bar at the Union. 

New York Fashion Week may be over, but the St Andrews fashion scene has just begun. Thankfully, the conclusion of the FS and Don’t Walk model auditions are by no means the final opportunity for model hopefuls to take the runway. This Saturday, Catwalk returns to town.


After a hiatus last year (due to not having a venue), RAG Week’s charity fashion show will see a revival, beginning with perhaps the most anticipated part of the planning process: the auditions. From 12pm  to 6pm on October 3rd, the committee encourages students of all types to join them in the Beacon Bar. Rather than aggressively scouting only the tallest and slimmest among the local population, Catwalk hopes to select from an eclectic group of candidates, taking into account personality just as much as physical appearance.

With a fresh look and a brand new venue, this year’s show will be one of the best offered in St Andrews. Join the Facebook event here and like Catwalk’s page to keep updated.
