The Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show returns for another year in 2013, its ninth year, to raise money for Cancer Support Scotland and The Sandpiper Trust.

Last year the charity raised £10,280 for Children’s Hospice Association Scotland and it hopes to do even better this year.

This year’s show at the refurbished Assembly Rooms on George Street begins with a new theme of ‘duality’, something it says is "particularly pertinent in the context of Edinburgh as it is one that it not only every-present in the realms of fashion but has been identified as an inherent characteristic of Scottish culture."

The student run fashion show has included designers such as Nicole Farhi, Vivienne Westwood, Mark Fast, Issa, Calvin Klein Menswear and Luella in past shows, as well as up-and-coming local student talent.

In the show’s eight year history it has raised over a quarter of a million pounds for charities which have also included Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Poppyscotland and Marie Curie.
