UCD Fashion Show was launched for this year on Tuesday 9th February in the Global Lounge by UCD Ents. The launch was attended by former Miss Ireland contestant and model, Shauna Lindsay. At the launch, Lindsay wore an original design by Irish designer Maria Lola Roche, and posed for photographs with students and volunteers.The theme of this year’s Fashion Show is ‘Climate Revolution’. The show will be held on February 25th and 26th in the Astra Hall, with all proceeds going to the Down Syndrome Centre in Sandyford. The Young Designer of the Year Competition will take place on the second night of the Fashion Show, on 26th February.UCD Fashion Show Producer David Healy said of this year’s event: “It's great to have a show like this in UCD especially as it gives students across the city the opportunity to showcase their work to such a big audience in such a big show.  There's also of course the fundraising side of the show which is so important each year and we're hoping to raise as much money as possible for the Down Syndrome Centre.”Tickets for the show can be purchased through the UCD Ents app and from the UCD Students’ Union shops on campus, priced at €12 and €15.
