Description

June 13, 2019 sees a fashion extravaganza taking place in Wandsworth! At the Tooting Hub to be precise.

The culmination of a project supported by Wandsworth Oasis, will see a number of outfits styled by young people from the borough, parade the catwalk at the Hub.

The project theme, funded by Wandsworth Oasis, was centred around a HIV & STI prevention message, targeting MSM (men who have sex with men) and young people in Wandsworth borough. To continue the decline in HIV infection rates – Public Health England recommends a prevention message and reduction of high risk behaviours needs to continue. Additional concerns included STI’s rates increasing e.g. gonorrhea, syphilis, with the highest rates of STI’s in 16 – 24 age group – Chlamydia.

To do this we wanted to educate around the history of HIV & AIDS from the 80s, show designed project that would encourage learning through creative and fashion.

In addition we created our showstopping outfit GAIA, whch will be on th catwalk, as well as having appeared at many location around the boroug and at Pride, Notting Hill Carnival and Lambeth Show to name a few.
