Exordium

After the success of the last event ‘Prelusion’, MimosaLiFE is proud to announce the next in the series – ‘Exordium’.

 

The aim of Mimosa is to provide a promotional platform for local creatives, whether it be designers, models, photographers, musicians or dancers. The orchestrating of regular events allows us to showcase a range of unique talent. ‘Exordium’ will be a full runway show featuring luxury but affordable formalwear, knitwear, menswear, urban fashion and bridal wear from six of Scotland’s up and coming designers – Hardwear, Naromode, Nutmeg Couture/Bridal, Di Gilpin, Arsalan & Jonathan Gardner Creations.

As head of PR Mhairi Harris explains, there is a need for more accessible and approachable fashion shows in the Glasgow area.

 

Traditionally, shows can appear to be daunting, however, this intimate location allows for the audience to see, breath and almost ‘touch’ the fashion.

It is also extremely exciting to have an event like this relatively early on into a society’s founding. The society has always strived not to disappoint and finally to get people talking about local fashion again.”

The night will begin with our signature complimentary Mimosa champagne drinks reception, followed by the runway show and performances from local musicians, then the party will continue into the early morning with a DJ set from Sanctuary resident Grantos. It is the perfect opportunity to experience fashion first hand and to network with local creatives. If the success of our last event is anything to go by, Exordium promises to be very special indeed.

 

The event will be held at The Sanctuary, in Glasgow’s fashionable West End, on the 30th of January at 8.30pm.

 

Proceeds will be donated to the Scottish Spina Bifida Association, a charity which has had the continued support of MimosaLiFE.

 

Tickets can be obtained at the pre-party on Tuesday 28th January at the Black Rabbit (Great Western Road, Glasgow) or by contacting Mhairi Harris on 07825 872427. Additionally, there will be PR teams outside the University Library on Monday 27th for more information and ticket sales.

 

We hope to see you there.

MimosaLiFE x Black Rabbit Presents Vivendi [Recap]

In anticipation of the year ahead, the Committee members at MimosaLiFE organised a social/meeting on 24th of October 2013  at our  favourite Glaswegian watering holes  ‘Black Rabbit’ to advertise vacancies in   our events, creative and administration departments. Importantly  this event was  a second  warm welcome for old and new members at our society and a opportunity to liase with fellow fashion enthusiasts, photography lovers and creatives  over complimentary drinks and pizzas courtesy of our partners at Black Rabbit and fully sponsored guestlist/afterparty  by our friends at Sanctuary Glasgow.   In true Mimosa Fashion our music policy remained audacious as usual,  an eclectic playlist of deep house classics, 80s drenched synth-funk jams, 90s and early 2000s r&b borrowed from the  best of Timbaland and Neptune discography with a pinch of sultry 2013 quiet storm records a la Shy Girls. 

Here our snapshots of some our favourite moments  captured by Mimosa darling Lera Kurova.

On Wednesday the 18th of September 2013, the MimosaLiFE team re-initiated their Oeuvre Street Fashion Series at the Fresher’s Fair.  Despite the wet dripped Glaswegian  morning, the atmosphere around the Glasgow University campus was nothing sort of electric. Autumn is a season  that often celebrates  for shades of grey, charcoal and black  in fashion, however the individuals we encountered displayed bold and colourful tones in the individual fashion choices.  We’ll like to give a massive thank to all those that participated in our street fashion photo shoot. Enjoy the photos below.
