LEEDS RAG FASHION SHOW 2021
The award-winning annual Leeds RAG Fashion Show (LRFS) is back for its 13th year!
WHAT IS LRFS?
LRFS is the largest student-led charity event hosted at the University of Leeds, providing an opportunity for creative collaboration alongside huge fundraising for charity.
Last year, the show raised an impressive £27,000 for environmental charities Hubbub and Plastic Oceans, exceeding the previous year and leaving us with the motivation to top this. Having won the Event of the Year multiple times, between 2008 and 2018, LRFS is a major highlight in the RAG and Leeds University Union events calendar, combining fashion, originality and innovation to produce a social spectacle.
With human rights abuses systematic throughout the garment industry and poverty pay rife, Labour Behind the Label’s campaigning to improve working conditions and the lives of those who make our clothes are essential. They raise public awareness, hold brands and governments accountable and promote collective action from consumers to push for change in the industry. Among their incredible successes, their campaigning has been instrumental in pushing UK retailers to sign the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety and helped garment workers in Cambodia demand a living wage.
Carers Leeds is an independent charity that gives support, advice and information to unpaid carers aged over 16. Established in 1996, our team of expert support workers are dedicated to improving the lives of the 74,000 carers in Leeds. They deliver confidential one to one and group support that helps carers keep on caring. They are based in the centre of Leeds, and also offer support in local communities, over the phone and online. Carers Leeds works in partnership with community groups, local businesses and third sector organisations to give carers in Leeds a network of support that covers general and specialist carers issues.
In order to reach our fundraising goal, we depend greatly on generous sponsors to help fund the show, so that all our money raised goes directly towards our two chosen charities.
