“The experience will be unique, fun and is sure to be a night to remember. Feedback from previous years is always positive and the events are a success due to the planning and organisation that goes into them. The students’ hard work and dedication will shine through.”

As well as raising money for a worthy cause, the event helps students’ development, as it provides invaluable fashion industry experience.

Mollie continued: “The event will help to complete the Fashion Professional practice module of our course and gives us an insight into industry life. The Modern Masquerade is helping everyone in specific ways as the module students are split into groups – from operations and planning to marketing and PR, visuals and buying.”

The Modern Masquerade takes place on Wednesday 18 April at Borja nightclub, Castilian Street, Northampton.
